In the vibrant threads of Africa’s embrace,
A tapestry woven with love and grace,
A fashion statement that reaches far and wide,
Celebrating culture, with unity as our guide.
From the Maasai’s rich hues of red and blue,
To the Kente cloth with colors bold and true,
Textures and patterns tell stories untold,
African fashion, a masterpiece to behold.
Each garment a canvas, expressing identity,
Honoring traditions, with creativity,
A symbol of pride, a voice through design,
African fashion, a pathway to align.
Through threads that intertwine and connect,
A message of peace, we proudly project,
Embracing diversity, breaking down walls,
African fashion, peace’s beckoning call.
With every stitch, a bridge we’ve built,
Promoting harmony, where hearts are filled,
A kaleidoscope of styles, tribes, and tongues,
In this tapestry, unity is sung.
Let the vibrancy of colors run free,
As we celebrate the beauty that we see,
In the waves of Ankara and dashiki,
Peace and fashion dance in synergy.
So let us don our African attire,
Igniting a flame, a peace-inspiring fire,
In each thread, let compassion be sewn,
For African fashion, peace will be known.
