In addition, she remarked that she will use her platform to raise awareness on domestic abuse and advocate for increased representation of ethnic minorities within the Science field.

3. Uniformed by a Burqa
Imagine if all women in Kenya would be ordered to wear the same attire by a dictatorial regime?
In Afghanistan, the Taliban have put it as a cardinal rule for all women to wear the ‘Burqa’. A Burqa is a full body garment that covers a woman from head to toe and only allows a mesh eyepiece that offers the viewer a blinkered view of the world.

The Islamist/ militant group’s recent takeover in the country has seen the rise in the prices of Burqas in the capital city of Afghanistan, Kabul. This is as a result of the demand by the Taliban that all women must wear a burqa at all times. Many women fear the risk of being flogged if they are found wearing western style clothing therefore creating a high demand for the ‘Taliban’ burqas.

4. Do-rags Craze ( written as Do-rag pronounced as /du-rag/)
A Do-rag is a fashion accessory that has a long history in black culture. It was first worn by black men who made waves and maintained them.

In the early 2000s, with the Advent of Hip-hop, durags were such a trend and their influence was spread by rappers like 50 cent, Nelly and Eminem. After then, they slowly sunk into oblivion, until recently when they have been reinvented back to style-fashion. Most guys believe, they add a certain gangster, razzle-dazzle to their looks hence the towering liking.

5. A “drip” conscious Generation Z

Generation Z are the people born as from 1999 onwards. This generation is characterized by individuality, expressing oneself and giving off a little bit of culture shock value.

The Gen Z  generation has greatly revolutionized the Fashion scene. From the dyeing of hair with unconventional hair colors such as green, blue, brown and red, to bold piercings in their noses, multiple piercings on the ears and on the belly and finally to breaking gender conforming outfits. They are the outstanding generation that are not afraid to confidently showcase their art, talent, individuality and diversity through their sense of fashion and style.
