THE DESIGNER – AFRICAN MOSAIQUE
Ethiopia’s only high fashion label, African Mosaique was launched in 2004. Every year since then has seen a new collection being developed, creating a fusion of contemporary African inspired ready-to-wear and couture wear.
African Mosaique was created by Anna Getaneh, its Managing and Creative Director. Anna is a fashion-cultural enthusiast, humanitarian, and an acclaimed former international model. From her base in Paris and New York City, her modeling career spanned close to 10 years, working with renowned designers such as Christian Lacroix, Ungaro, Yves St. Laurent, Ralph Lauren, Escada, and Donna Karan.
Anna’s hallmark is her passion about children and development. She has done global advocacy work for UNICEF , the United Nations Children’s Fund, on African themes. Click HERE for the African Mosaique website.
FUN FACT: There is really no fun fact but I have to say that Anna Getaneh who is the creative director of the label is in her 40s but she is sooooooo gorgeous! I hope and pray that I look that good at that age……..Anyway, my mum is in her 40s and is even more gorgeous (ummm….ok mum, I said it….can I have my $100 now…lol)
Hot or Not? Fiyah or just plain vanilla? Anyway, what do u guys think?
