Senegalese fashion label Bull Doff (@bulldoffofficiel) has expanded to Nigeria, France and New York, and co-founder Baay Sooley hopes it will one day “conquer the world.” He says: “We want to be in Africa and big cities in Europe and the States. It’s our target.” “In fashion, the biggest mistake you can make is to refuse to learn,” says Sooley. “My top three tips for succeeding in business is passion, work, confidence.” Find out more about Bull Doff on CNN: http://money.cnn.com/video/luxury/2017/09/12/bull-doff-fashion-senegal.cnnmoney/ Photo: Bull Doff #CNNAfrica

French-Senegalese duo, Laure Tarot and Baay Soley, co-founded Bull Doff(@bulldoffofficiel) in 2010. “She has a background in photography… and me, in the beginning I was dance and music,” says Sooley. “It was quite simple to mix our background and have this baby called Bull Doff.” The name Bull Doff means “don’t be mad” in Senegalese slang. “People always tell us we’re crazy, that we’re mad in the way we’re creating,” says Sooley.

Fashion brand Bull Doff (@bulldoffofficiel) fuses tribal art with punk and rock influences. Born in Senegal, it is inspired by the smells and colors of Dakar.

Kudzanai Chiurai’s #photo series ‘We Live in Silence,’ contests dominant colonial narratives. “The exhibition repositions the #female role in recent struggle histories,” a statement about Chiurai’s work reads, “recasting the lead character as a woman in the black liberation narrative to challenge the gender bias inherent to such narratives, which tend to pit a #black male as the victim of colonisation and, hence, the liberator of the post-colony.”‘We Live in Silence’ by Kudzanai Chiurai is on display at the Goodman Gallery (@goodman_gallery) in Johannesburg until October 14.

Zimbabwean artist Kudzanai Chiurai’s photo series ‘We Live in Silence,’ can be described as “politically charged.” The pieces contest dominant colonial narratives, were inspired by Mauritanian filmmaker Med Hondo’s critically acclaimed 1967 drama ‘Soleil Ô,’ and reject the notion that “#African migrants are to think, speak and understand language like their colonisers.”‘We Live in Silence’ by Kudzanai Chiurai is on display at the Goodman Gallery (@goodman_gallery) in #Johannesburg until October 14.

British-Liberian artist @LinaIrisViktor brings together new and existing abstract works in a solely black and gold colour palette. ‘Black Exodus’ questions definitions of blackness, whilst exploring existing narratives surrounding #race and the #African diaspora. The above work forms part of the artist’s ongoing ‘Constellations’ series - #black canvases perforated by hand-gilded #gold patterns. Drawing together religious symbology, cosmology and naturally occurring biological patterns - such as human DNA - the artist explores indigenous and etiological beginnings, repositioningblackness not as a void, but rather a source of matter. Viktor will open her debut UK solo exhibition at @theamargallery in London, UK from September 12 to October 20. Photo: Lina Iris Viktor #CNNAfrica
