I first saw the collection of Tanzanian designer Evelyn Rugemalira during the Swahili fashion week. I was delighted to receive her latest collection a few days by a fellow blogger. According to the Swahili Fashion Week website Evelyn was an operations manager for a family-owned business is Dar Es Salaam when she opened a clothing fashion label called Eve Collections after an inspiring trip to Nigeria.

Eve Collections caters for the needs of creative, risk-taking women who share the same desire for sensuous, feminine fabrics in fresh, luscious colors. Eve Collections does not just design but also pays attention to detail and works with the client for ultimate customer satisfaction.

This latest collection called The Denim Kitenge collection is a mixture of denim with Ankara.  There are a few pieces in this collection that I do want in my closet. Like the one above. Overall  this is a cute collection but I would have loved to see the same background for each pictures. Some of them were taken outside and some inside so its a bit confusing. You can find out more of Evelyn by checking her facebook page.
