Kitenge Festival

Annual festival taking place in London. I had the pleasure of being part of the 5th Kitenge festival that was organised by Jo Nganda, CEO of Joyz agency. Kitenge is an East African cotton fabric printed in various colours and distinctive boarders and patterns. It has its origin from Kiswahili kitengele.

As part of an initiative called Celebrating Our Crown me and Sylvia Emodi created elaborate head dressing to which we styled 9 models from Equisite model agency. Leading up to the show I asked my friend Gebra to design a silhouette statement on a purple dress to represent the Celebrating Our Crown brand. Thanks to brother for designing the image for our purple dresses.

The models did us proud as they cat walked to Mansa Mansa afro beat song. At the end finale we couldn’t resit dancing on the runway also. We received so many compliments and inquiries about future workshops and shows.
