“I believe that African and Asian models, designers, photographers and makeup artists don’t possess their desired or deserved spotlight within the fashion realm,” Makein says.
CAIRO (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
The term “haute couture” not only denotes that a piece of clothing is handmade, but that it is considered high fashion. The term itself originated in France, a country considered by many to be the fashion capital of the world. Author and model Sabrina Eiya Makein believes it’s time for a change and calls for appreciation of the fashion industries in Asia and Africa in her new book, “The Underestimated Arts of AfriAsia” (published by AuthorHouse).
Makein’s new book details the many elements of the fashion world in Africa and Asia. Makein leaves no stone unturned as she describes the various jewelry, clothing and color schemes present in each region’s fashion realm, with accompanying photos for reference. She then describes the numerous models in each region who helped fashion reach its current stage, and pays tribute to models of today whom she believes deserve more recognition.
“I believe that African and Asian models, designers, photographers and makeup artists don’t possess their desired or deserved spotlight within the fashion realm,” Makein says. “I’ve written ‘The Underestimated Arts of AfriAsia’ in order to assist these talents in becoming more acknowledged and appreciated.”
An excerpt from “The Underestimated Arts of AfriAsia”:
“Who knew that Fashion designing and a Masters in Finance and Management could ever co-exist in an industry where a glamorous connection is (practically) second to an exquisite appearance? Well: Nigerian designer, Deola Sagoe, has proven to those within the industry of Haute Couture that brains, as well as style, can definitely transform the Fashion world into an extraordinary place filled with intellect and divine appearances.”
