African Art, Life & Design...Solange has met her perfect match!

It was announced today, that Solange is, now, an advocate for Studio Africa.  Studio Africa is a joint collaboration between DIESEL+EDUN, that will show off the creative designs of young Africa--bringing culture, fashion and new designers to the world.

“My love for African fashion, music and art runs deep to my core and has been a significant source of inspiration to me as an artist. I’m constantly being exposed to such innovative African talent so I’m excited that Diesel + Edun is celebrating that extraordinary creativity through Studio Africa and taking me along for the journey!” – Solange, March 2013

There will be lots of events around the world celebrating the line.  Studio Africa will launch with a series of collaborative, global live events with Boiler Room, the leading online broadcaster for live-stream music. Shows in Tokyo, Paris, London, Berlin and LA will bring together African and Western musicians in a celebration of creativity beyond borders.  (Source:  Roc Nation)
