About - Celebrating African Creativity

 

Hello, we’re guessing you found yourself on this page because you’re obviously wondering what “Black Fabulousity” is all about. It’s pretty straight forward.

We are people who are drawn to visual crafts; we have a thing for fashion, art and photography. We live in a metropolitan city that habours a large pool of creatives that constantly  leave us in awe of the amazing things they create. We felt the urge to share these amazing crafts with you, and that’s how it all started.

Black Fabulousity is a celebration of the unique, different and downright amazing. We celebrate the creative minds who hone their craft till it manifests in magnificence. We believe in creating an oasis of splendour, a house of wonder, where you can feed your eyes and fill your mind with all the beauty that black births.

Still don’t get it?

Let’s break it down.

/Black/ (adj.) – An attitude; A way of life; A culture; Also an eternally fashionable colour; People who embody the culture and attitude, though not necessarily the colour.

/Fa-bu-lous-i-ty/ (noun) – A state of being incredible, exceptional, unique and fabulous; The essence of wonder, style and elegance.
