  • THE STORY
    ya-moulana-maxi-dress

    You can’t miss how comfortable the musicians look in their clothing as they move freely around the stage.

    I wanted to create a limited collection inspired by the fashion of the musicians with some key components.

    Without size constraints.

    Comfortable.

    Seasonless.

    All while still looking fabulous.

    Some are inspired by my mum’s own classic stylish pieces. All of these elements reflect the way the majority of African women dress.

  • THE PROCESS
    Working with a women-owned factory in Morocco to create the Capsule Collection pieces.
