New York Times Loves Africa

What's sweeter than opening the paper (and I mean that in the virtual sense) and reading two articles about how chic Africa is? Hells yeah.

Read about Merchants on Long's pop up shop in London (wish I could go!) here. If you'd like to read more about Merchants go here or here. What a beautiful shop.

Then, continue your journey to read how Africa is re-branding itself through fashion, using its vibrant and beautiful style.

Great post and thanks for the links! I am in LOVE those throws from Merchants on Long! I havent spent nearly enough time exploring Cape Town in my travels to Africa (mostly I am working in Zim), but I will check them out next time I am there. I love all positive NEWS stories about Africa, and the NYTimes article was great. Thanks for sharing!
