House of Tayo
Designer Matthew Rubanga
La fabrique Rwandaise est à l’honneur. Sous le nom de House Of Tayo, le créateur Matthew “Tayo” Rubanga nous offre des formes élégantes avec des matières Wax juste exceptionnelles et originales. Il affirme avec fierté son identité africaine. Son inspiration vient autant de mouvements Pan Africain des Années 5O et 60 que comme Matthew l’affirme lui-même, de styles vestimentaires de politiciens africains congolais et ghanéens, comme Patrice Lumumba ou encore Kwame Nkrumah. Et le comble, ce sont des pièces pouvant être portées aussi bien que pour vous messieurs que pour vous mesdames. Des noeuds papillons, des foulards, pour lui sa marque doit représenter la sophistication, l’élégance et la classe africaine.
Pour l’instant la vente ne se fait uniquement qu’à Kigali -Rwanda mais un site est en route pour la vente par correspondance. Stay connected people.
The Rwandan brand is in honor. As the name of House of Tayo, the designer Matthew “Tayo” Rubanga, gives us some nice shapes with wax materials so exceptional and original. He shows with pride his african identity. His inspiration comes from as far as pan african movements of 50’s and 60’s as sartorial styles from african congolese and ghanaian politicians, like Patrice Lumumba or Kwame Nkrumah. Moreover, these are pieces that men as far as women can wear. Snood or bow tie combo, for him his brand has to represent sophistication, elegancy and stylishness.
For now, you can find House of Tayo products only in Kigali in Rwanda but a website is under construction for the sale. Be patient and stay connected.
ATL is here…. #wynwood
There is really no point in college to be honest. I know so many friends that has graduated from their colleges, and they still ended up with a regular job and needing to pay back their student loans.
So you’re tell me to take out financial aid just to study and end up completing everything to still not be where they said we would be if we did it?
fuck the bull shit.
This is the most ignorant post I have ever read. College is very rewarding for many of people who have degrees. If we look at the salary bracket of those who have degrees verses those who don’t, there is a TREMENDOUS difference of pay. Majority of the people who have careers have degrees! Education is power …Do the research!
you see this?
it’s called a razor
if you’re a girl, USE IT
your hairy legs and armpits aren’t cute okay
you’re not helping out for woman’s rights or anything
YOU’RE JUST MAKING YOURSELF LOOK NASTY
Women have been socialized to believe that they must remove hair for a number of reasons, primarily the following:
- hair is historically and Biblically associated with power; we as a patriarchal culture are obsessed with keeping hair on men (facial hair, Hair Club for Men, hair plugs, whatever) and keeping it off women. You say hair on women is nasty; why is it only hair on women? Women and men have the same pubic hair. We all grow it out of our follicles for the same reason. Why is it only gross on women?
- women’s bodies have been considered the property of men since the dawn of time, and therefore we have been held to a standard of beauty and attractiveness that is not determined by us but is instead determined by something called the male gaze, which is erases all sexualities and genders other than cisgender heterosexual men and assumes that women are performing for it.
- childlike women are considered less “threatening” and more “feminine” because they are naive, quiet, and rely on ~*adult men*~ to take care of them.
- there is a fallacy about pubic hair that it is dirty. It is not dirty. In fact, it’s there to keep your genitals cleaner. Pubic hair and armpit hair are also there to spread your pheromones around and make it easier for you to attract a mate.
- all mammals have hair. We’re mammals.
- No one else’s body is your business. Ever. You want to shave? Go ahead! That’s totally your prerogative and if you’re more comfortable shaving, feel free. But given that pubic hair isn’t innately dirty, there’s no reason for anyone to remove it if they don’t want to.
You’re not sending out some edgy, hardcore message here. You’re just reinforcing what our culture wants you to reinforce. Before you pick up that razor again, think about why you want to shave. Is it just because our culture told you to? Why’d they tell you to? What’s the point?
Do what makes you comfortable and what makes you happy, and let others do the same.
Not to mention that at least in the US, shaving legs and underarms has been a thing for less than a century.
And was popularized by razor and depilatory companies. Who, of course, just wanted to double their sales by targeting women as well as men. Their marketing campaigns started in women’s magazines in 1915.
Here’s the first advertisement they ran trying to sell razors by telling women their underarm hair was “objectionable”. And it worked.
Advertising and commercialism once again enforcing arbitrary restrictions on women’s bodies~
Yes I am reblogging this again. Because of what the above person added. It’s so interesting to learn how customs come about in a culture.
Bless this post.
