Queendom

Africa has a rich cultural diaspora; as do we, the people who inhabit it. Within these cultures there lies a certain dynasty; the kingdoms ruled over by male leaders but residing next to these kings, are equally powerful queens. These women are not only beautiful, but they are strong; often taking on more responsibilities than the men themselves. I’m paying homage to these women and the unique clothing they use to show their heritage.
