Renowned Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has revealed why she wears made in Nigeria designers to major outings.
The eminent Nigerian author and feminist, Adichie revealed the reason behind her choice of fashion in an interview with i-D’s Candice Carty-Williams.
“I decided to use fashion as a kind of political statement,” Chimamanda reveals, “which is to say that I made the choice to wear mostly Nigerian designers to public events, because obviously I want to support an industry that’s full of talent, but also to make a case for how fashion can tell a story. Fashion and culture are intertwined in very interesting ways.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has continued to use her Instagram page to showcase her love for Nigerian fashion brands. She makes sure she tags each post with “#MadeInNigeria”
She last month received a honorary degree from Duke University.
