Texts, Talks and Tailoring: Adichie and her Fashion Politics

Matthew Lecznar (University of Sussex) identifies the politics of fashion as central to the rise of Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to international prominence as a literary celebrity and public intellectual. He suggests that Adichie’s fashion and body politics function not only as media of self-promotion but must be regarded as a transmedia space that allows her to reach diverse audiences of different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds.
