Koloqua Style: Trending Moments in Liberian Fashion

by

Since our last Koloqua Style ™ roundup, there has been some major happenings in the Liberian fashion and art industries. For starters, USA-based Photographer, Isaac West ‘s photographs took front page in a Paper Magazine editorial feature on American superstar actress, Zendaya. The editorial is the second major work shot by West to be featured in the popular US magazine. Following suit to West’s feature, the trends dominating among Liberians around the world since our last roundup has shown that it is time to spring up new colors to our wardrobes.

From bold, bright colors, to more pastel and dark solid palettes, the trends dominating among Liberians around the world in the past week remained true to form. Liberians are never ones to shy away from the drama, so it is unsurprising that the latest trends are taking this route. Likewise, with its shared history with the USA, there are many American influences in Liberian culture. As such, the increasing trend of modern styles with lappa prints took the backstage in the past week.

In the past week, European/American influences reigned supreme, as most of our trendsetters chose solid colors and classic cuts over lappa patterns. Will this be the trend for the incoming Summer/Rainy Season months, or are we in for more twists and turns? Continue below and decide for yourself.
