Women love jewellery. It’s a known fact. According to a fashion poll, 75 percent of African women love wearing fashion accessories. Fashion season is so close that we can almost taste it and whether you love bold accessories, or just want a simple headwrap look, we’re here to help you find that awesome accessory for you.

Kenyan based photographer, Emmanuel Thuo takes us through a fabulous shoot he did featuring Phillys Wagocho. The shoot displays some amazing African necklaces, bracelets, rings, and headwrap styles all shot in Nairobi, Kenya.

“This project showcases the bold IDENTITY of our African women,” says the photographer. “The neck pieces are a symbol of “IDENTITY” and the magnifying glass was used to show projection of their strongholds.”
