Fashion Week Internationale Visits Nigeria

Julie Gerstein / January 31, 2012

Vice’s “Fashion Week Internationale” has been a fascinating series and its final installment — in Nigeria — is perhaps the most striking. The episode conflates the country’s fashion week with Nigeria’s recent anti-gay legislation and history of anti-gay sentiment. Even the country’s First Lady shows up, and notes that “I remember my hot pants used to be quite hot.” But perhaps the best part is host Charlet’s interview with the ridiculously intelligent David Okorodudu, the albino nephew of the creator of “Nigeria’s Next Super Model.” Please watch.
