NOLCHA FASHION WEEK: Maita MarimoWednesday, October 02, 2013
Maita Marimo might just be the most adorable fashion designer I've ever met! She's so tiny and yet she is my age!! I chatted with her backstage at NOLCHA Fashion Week for FashionMingle.net on her inspiration for her Spring Collection. Maita is from Zimbabwe, and her love for native Africa is very apparent in her designs. Tribal Chic is the name she has given to her collection and it is inspired by different tribes in Africa, but not in the obvious way that we would think of African tribe apparel. Instead of the bold, vibrant colors, Maita took just the African silhouettes and combined them with different fabrics.
