AFROPUNK is a festival for Black people alike to celebrate their blackness in an open space. It’s a time to listen to music, see art, eat, and so much more, all while relishing in the beauty of being black. One of the most anticipated parts of AFROPUNK, aside from the performers, is the fashion. Everybody who attends shows up and shows OUT. The outfits this year were so amazing we had to put it on display.


Some of our favorite celebrities showed up:
