Beaded Gown By Sevon Dejana

“Published Privately : 2 Months ago. That’s how long it took me to find my mojo again . Perhaps there’s really something about Solange. I’ve often thought her incorporeal, now it’s confirmed . Why am I on about Solange you wonder ? Because I press play on A Seat at The Table and the words began to flow . I particularly find my rhythm when track 7 : F.U.B.U (For Us By Us) comes on.

The message in that song can be linked to this tw0-part editorial.(Of course Sol is on about black power, while I go about my feminist ‘rants’).

Women Rising 

Our Epoch,

C’est Maintenant

Women In the Monde

Our Epoch,

C’est Maintenant

Women crowned Kings

Our Epoch,

C’est Maintenant

Women For Women

Our Epoch,

C’est Maintenant

Women By Women

Our Epoch,

C’est Maintenant

Photographed by Lubebatu Abubakar, Our Epoch is a reflection of the time we now live in. A time where queens have become kings, women now occupy top positions and are now raising girls to do same. Summarily, it’s no longer just a man’s world.

White was the theme color, signifying Royalty, Richesse & Elegance .
What makes the editorial even more peculiar is that it was worked on by a pair of sisters .
