Comfortable yet fashionable that is what I would call the inspiration behind this article and shoot.


For me fashion is an art and so for this style I decided to use a piece of Kanga/lesso which is a long colorful printed cloth known as the kishutu (which is a Mijikenda fabric) to make a skirt that flows and shows my curves at the same time.


For many years the kanga cloth has persisted as the favorite cloth for Swahili women.

For the hijab I decided to use a white piece of cloth that speaks purity and modesty.

Why use it as a crop top? To represent the island and fun beach life that we celebrate each day.


It’s a perfect outfit for a romantic stroll on the sandy beaches, with the wind blowing over it.
