For the Love of Bold Prints! Presenting an African-Inspired Shoot – “Nativity” by Daniel Obasi



Nativity Shoot - BellaNaija - November 2015004

Good morning BellaNaijarians!

As you make your way to work and kick off your day, we have a fab inspired shoot for you. Created by Daniel Oyedikachi Obasi, the shoot is inspired by a desire to merge the present outlook on African fashion with the past through colours and print.

According to Daniel – “Nativity aims to use visuals and the blending of unconventional pieces to inspire a block of new generation Africans ready to not just reinvent how the world sees Africa but create an exciting way to pass down the tales of the great dying tree.

The shoot has models dressed in mixed & matched floral prints and African fabrics, and we love the vintage-meets-modern vibe seen through out the shoot.

See the shoot below;
