Attending Feathers 40th birthday by Felicities PR allowed me to have a look at their upcoming choice of designers in their store for AW2014. Alexander Mac Queen, Moschino and several Italian designers were presented in a relaxed and controlled layout.

Wax originates from Asia and was popular as a textile in the XIXth century among brides to be (as seen on pictures above). Wedding dresses made of white fabric are a quite contemporary dressing option.

Last thursday was the opportunity to see the mid-season for the A/W 2014 Christmas attire at River Island. Lobster on menu and freshly made milkshakes (banana/peanuts) were served. Pink and yellow coats were largely displayed as key items.

Our upcoming project starts shaping. Thank you to URBAMEN!

Was happy to see this fantastic coming back.After last year’ success, the Festival by the Africa Centre next month is on (will be off holidays) and I dearly recommend the textile exhibition. 

Africa Writes 2014 last week end enables me to learn more about African travel writing while debating around narratives for both diaporic and Africa-based readers. 

Some of the follow up pictures for our upcoming project before heading off to a well-deserved holiday!

DOCUMENTARY: “Kaffir Culture” by Kannan Arunasalam.

In some parts of the world, the word ‘kaffir’, an Arabic term meaning ‘infidel’, is or was used as a derogatory racially offensive term in reference to black people. Used during the Arab slave trade, the it was later adopted by various European communities, such as the Dutch and Portuguese, to refer to the Africans they kidnapped and enslaved.

Through the enslavement of black people from the African continent to other parts of the world, the word found its way to Sri Lanka where it was used to describe the descendents of Africans brought there by Portuguese enslavers and British colonists from around the 16th century. But where in South Africa the world still carries a negative connotation even amongst black people, Sri Lankan kaffirs use the term boldly as a descriptor and a way of acknowledging their East African roots and heritage.

In this short documentary, filmmaker Kannan Arunasalam tells the story of a small group of Sri Lankan kaffirs, many of whom are mixed, and their struggle to keep their culture alive as their community shrinks.
