”Our version of a Barbie wardrobe – set to a techno-color drum beat. We chose to incorporate our love of color and pattern to develop a unique line of bold African print textiles in versatile fabrications such as Lycra blend, neoprene, stretch cotton and organza.
The incorporation of African prints beyond traditional non-stretch cotton allows for the development of better draped and fit garments – creating exciting new possibilities on the frontier of African fashion.”
