OK, so you have to help me out with this one. Diasporique.com has got to be one of the most addictive sites around, at least for me. I’d love to tell you more about it, but there is no mission statement beyond this simple statement:
Diasporique is both haven and hub to art, design, fashion, music, cuisine, language, and culture throughout the richness that is the African diaspora. Fresh content is posted every weekday.
Just pages and pages of African-inspired fashion and art with a lean towards the female aesthetic. As a photographer, I caught myself clicking through the volumes of images and as an artist, I was pulled in by the style the art and flair of Africa’s Diaspora. The colors are rich and celebratory. The models beautiful and engaging. But I couldn’t help but wonder, what’s all this goodness for? Wanna know the answer? Well, they are newly enjoined to the Twitter; perhaps ask the question yourself.
Nonetheless, it is pleasantly suprising when you find yourself 20 minutes into browsing the site that you haven’t read anything negative.
