AVANTgarden: Be You, Be Proud

SEEN is intrigued to hear about AVANTgarden from FKA Twigs, a new digizine dedicated to self-care, beauty and the art of braids within the black community. Certainly on my voyaging around London, I’m struck, as an observer, by the beauty and complexity of the braids I see.

We checked out the ‘zine for some truly stunning images combined with uplifting sayings such as ‘They locked her in a cage full of wolves. Poor wolves.’ All styles of braids are here, for men and women, suitable for any time of the day. SEEN particularly loved the tough, street-style, red ‘braids for all seasons’. It’s great to see this ancient tradition reinvented for the 21st century.
