Collection information -
Chitenge Meisie is an African influenced range with a local take on modern/ Western fashion. The Chitenge fabrics are the main fabrics used for the range. I use Chitenge fabric because of what it symbolises, a loyalty to my African roots while having a mind-set that is complete free and open to world views, I think any wearer can identify with that. I’m influenced by it girl Solange Knowles and the bloggers of street etiquette. Chitenge Meisie is a range for the brave who aren’t shy to pair prints with even more print.
Fabric sourcing and manufacturing-
The Chitenge fabrics are sourced in my country of origin, Zambia. Fabrics are sourced from Zambia for quality purposes as well as a better range selection. The Chitenge fabric is brought in from Zambia and the then garments are manufactured in Polokwane by a highly skilled Zambian tailor the garments are then brought to Johannesburg for sale.
