This is what makes the industry a stable investment as it is continuous. Fashion may mean a physical indication of beauty, elegance, and wealth or a good business opportunity and a seemingly fun job to work for, but for African designer Alphadi, fashion wasn’t so fun. Alphadi & Daughter Alphadi was born Seidnaly Sidhamed in Mali and is from a wealthy family. Living in a highly-conservative Muslim society, young Alphadi who had an eye for fashion experienced rejection and distaste from family and relatives (AFP News, 2011). Despite these setbacks, the designer was able to put up his own clothing line at such an early age and was able to change the way people look at Africa through his art. He has since then been able to open up his own chains of stores located in different parts of Africa, Europe and the United States. He has also had a series of fashion shows for the past three decades and has worked with renowned European designers.

Alphadi and Naomi The Alphadi collection are all inspired by Africa’s diverse cultures and landscape in the form of different apparels like gowns, tops, jeans, sportswear, bags, shoes, jewelries, and many more. Alphadi is also into African traditional handicrafts and interior design. He has earned international fame in a variety of fashion shows which has earned him several remarkable awards and praise from other lead designers in the fashion industry.

This is usually incorrect as possible pretty locate fairly easily stupid atheists and smart Christians. What’s more, it makes this won’t about people being either stupid or smart, I do think essentially most people are smart about certain topics and dumb about others.
