Ikiré Jones F/W ‘14 “Of Saints & Savages”

Photography by Rog Walker.

"To whom it may concern. This is a challenge to the zealously held belief that Africa is a monolithic village in need of perpetual saving. This is an open assault upon the delusions of those who cry endlessly of desolate stomachs and doorways darkened by disease. This is a public disavowing of all who think the cradle of civilization has nothing more to offer than unmolested raw materials and an army of open palms awaiting aid.

Further, this is a disclaimer that upon becoming dissatisfied with the myriad fictions which are daily presented to us as fact, we have henceforth resolved to tell our own stories. Loudly. No longer will we dine on a bounty of half-baked biases. No more will we sip from hoses gushing hypocrisy and hogwash. There are those who look past Africa’s beauty in the hopes of seeing savagery; so that they may preen and posture as saints. We are the children of tomorrow. And we are here to assure that their disappointment awaits.”

…to want my next love to be my last love?

Is it okay that I want this love to be 10x as magical as the last? I want him to be, mystical…intriguing…stimulating. I want him to challenge my mind with his intelligence and wit. I want him to make me laugh hysterically. I want him to be so engaging and captivating, I could get lost in his words for hours. I want that kind of love. I want him to caress my mind and undress my soul when we converse. I want our chemistry to be uncanny. I want his truth to be on his shoulders. I want to feel and identify his heart. I want to without question trust him. I want out hearts to beat in sync. I want him…and I…to be one.

I want him to lead and take care of me. I want to feel safe and secure in his presence. I want to feel wanted and sexy and beautiful when I’m with him. I want his eyes to stare intensely into the depths of my soul until I reveal all of my secrets. I want him to love me as he loves himself…as he loves God. I want him to encourage me and support me in the things I love. I want our passion for each other to be so intense that a mere glance sets us on fire. I want a gentle love. I want him to be gentle with my feelings but not afraid to tell me the truth. I want him to be thoughtful and respectful of my desires and boundaries. I want him to make me feel like a woman. I want him to accept my encouragement thoughts, opinions, and support as treasures and gold. I want him to be open and verbal about what he feels about me and express it often. I want him to show his love for me by caring and physically loving me with his thoughts and deeds. I want him to understand my makeup and want to get to know me deeply. I want our first time to be explosive. I want him to want me…forever. -@saunyaaa

Guess who’s on the front page of naturallycurly.com!? 🙋 I was so shocked when @naturallycurly reached out to me to share my story on why I created #ThePrayerProject. Although it is a natural hair focused website, it felt good to be noticed for my passion which is encouraging and sharing Christ’s love with others. I’m so glad that I’ve been able to reach so many with a simple idea that God placed on my heart last year. Thank you @naturallycurly!
