Drawing inspiration from her spiritual life as a Bahá’í, her love for the arts, her travels and rich multi-cultural heritage, Anyango Mpinga presented one of the rave-worthy collections from Day 1 of the Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2018. The award-winning Kenyan designer showcased a collection featuring laser-cut lace, newspaper print as well as artistic prints and architectural cuts.
The collection was made for the women that exude love wherever they go and resonate with the hummingbird symbol, which urges us to live life more lovingly. The Phonology collection also featured wearable pieces with asymmetrical frills that could be styled straight from the runway.
According to the designer who was showcasing for the first time at Lagos Fashion Week,
“This collection is for the women in my life who have shown me nothing but love and support in the past few months as I tried the counter life’s changes. Key words… LOVE, COMPASSION, HUMANITY, EMANCIPATION, KINDNESS, EQUALITY, FREEDOM, FREE AS A HUMAN…”
Here’s a look at the collection…
