Let’s go over to Tanzania for some uber-fab fashion shall we?

From London-based fashion designer Christine Mhando, ChiChia London presents its Spring/Summer 2015 collection titled “Hadithi Hadithi” which translates to “Story Story” in her native tongue, Swahili.

The collection takes inspiration from storytelling with unique prints that birth nostalgia from ‘Tingatinga’ paintings and Tanzanian sayings. It embodies pieces like floral & tribal print dresses, coats , jumpsuits, crop tops, maxi skirts and more and displayed against a backdrop of folklore illustrations.
