In other news this week, we introduced our Adire collection (read all about it here) and the African Kimono. Keeping true to our mission of adding new, stylish and authentic products to the site on a weekly basis, this collection combines the work of local textile designers in Southern Nigeria - who designed and hand dyed the fabrics, and the work of local tailors who worked with the printed fabric to create the Asian influenced Kimono.
We're looking forward to launching new products on the site over the coming weeks, and hope you'll love every item as much as we do. There is such a big focus right now on Africa, especially with all things fashion related. One major retailer recently announced production of it's SS14 collection in Nigeria and Kenya - which we hugely advocate. We also heard of Vans collaborating with Ghanaian based production outfit Della to produce a SS14 footwear collection, which is so beautiful.
Furthermore, we were thrilled to hear about the 2 African designers shortlisted for the Global LVMH Young Fashion Designer prize - congratulations to Maki Oh and Orange Culture. Flying those flags high and proud. We wish you the best of luck!
