Our clothing, our Culture, our fabric – Lynelle Furbert, Designer

So Saturday I took myself on a little trip to Africa, tasting the food, viewing the clothing and accessories and enjoying my submergence into my African heritage. Just kidding! But I did spend the day surrounded by African attire, food and art created by Bermudians. I had the privilege of attending the African Rhythm Black Expo and Fashion Show Extravaganza at PCC. Blown away doesn’t even begin to cover it! Each and every piece that rocked the runway was enchanting and inspiring. The clothes were inspired by and created in Ghana where the designer and The Black Collective member, Lynelle Furbert spends some of her time. The African fabrics with a bit of Bermudian flare were enough to get me wanting some pieces for myself. 

The scenes covered pieces for every occasion from swimwear to office attire to African inspired weddings. 

The show itself began with words of greeting by Honorary Patron Dr. Leonard Teye-Botchway followed by the Black National Anthem, Lift Every Voice and Sing sung by Princess Black. 

To cap it all off was a performance by Bermuda Donquili African Dancers and Drum Group and finally an auction of the clothing modeled that evening.
