This year for us is all about buying Zambian, about exploring the possibilities and learning more about Zambian fashion, it’s designers – and what they are about!
In this Spotlight post we are at home with Kamanga Wear, a premier destination for the fashion enthusiast that seeks chitenge ready-to-wear. The first time we met Christina and Donna, the ladies behind the brand, was at Zambia Fashion Week 2013.
(We remember being positively taken by Donna’s outfit and hair!)
So, when Kamanga Wear invited us to have fun with pieces from their SS15/16 collection, we did just that.
That said, enjoy!
