It's that time of the year again! Can I get a drum roll? The glorious two day AFroPunk festival is here and will be taking place on August 25-26 this year. As the manifesto states: “No sexism, no racism, no ableism, no ageism, no homophobia, no fatphobia, no transphobia, no hatefulness" AfroPunk has become a global movement that celebrates Blackness and activism through music, art, and fashion. As a result, this week our Starilized team wanted to take the time to share some tips on creating the perfect AfroPunk Festival outfit.
