If you’ve ever wondered who’s behind some of the amazing outfits worn by your favourite celebrities, look no further. Culture Trip takes a look at some of the top African fashion stylists you should know.
Fashion stylists use outfits created by designers to mould their client’s personal images. Some of the biggest celebrities in the world, such as Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, have been styled by people of African descent. These stylists have also done editorial work for magazines such as Elle, Fader and GQ Style, and films such as Queen of Katwe (2016). Some have made their names through social media, and some by starting out as interns and working their way up.
