 Eminent Nigerian author and feminist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has in an interview with i-D’s Candice Carty-Williams revealed the reason behind her choice of fashion.

“I decided to use fashion as a kind of political statement,” Chimamanda reveals, “which is to say that I made the choice to wear mostly Nigerian designers to public events, because obviously I want to support an industry that’s full of talent, but also to make a case for how fashion can tell a story. Fashion and culture are intertwined in very interesting ways.”
