I hope you all had a nice weekend and working off all the pounds you took this thanksgiving. I would like to introduce for the very time on Ciaafrique Kenya designer and fashionista Wambui Mukenyi. when I received Wambui's collection I could not wait to share it with you for several reasons but the main is reason it that she is different. I really appreciate African designers who don't limit themselves to African print fabrics. Wambui a self taught designer founded the Wambui Mukenyi label in 2009. Since then every one of her collections shows her love for luxurious fabric, whilst at the same time instilling her African heritage to produce timeless feminine and effortlessly stylish pieces. The latest collection is called "The urban chic collection" . Here is what the designer had to say about the collection.
Its for the everyday fashion savvy woman who loves to dress up and is articulate in what she wears. It caters to her in every aspect of her life. From office power woman to the party hostess to the glamorous party woman and to the laid lady. With a mix of leather, lace, sheer and African print, this collection is very versatile and chic. The urban woman is versatile, ever changing to adopt to the fashion of the world. The pieces in this collection range from sheer tops to play suits to bags, cross body bags, hair accessories to tights with the African print!"
I fell in love with the polka dots short and top on the picture above. So what do you think of the urban chic collection? If you like what you see you can purchase pieces from this collection on Wambui's website .
