Fashion: KISUA collaborates with African designers to create some truly remarkable clothing

Posted by Liv Siddall,

I think we can all agree that no part of the world does prints quite like the kind of tropical, kaleidoscopic patterns that Africa provide us with, and it seems to be only in recent years that people have really started to sit up and take notice. KISUA is an online fashion brand that scouts out some of Africa’s most talented textile and fashion designers and gives them the financial support and tools they need to create their garments. A portion of the profit goes straight to the designer and the clothes are sold to the rest of Africa and all over the world to pattern-hungry fashion lovers. Judging by these pretty outstanding press shots by Misha Taylor combined with KISUA’s seriously procrastination-worthy Tumblrs, we’re pretty sure this is going to take off like nobody’s business.
