This is a great place for style
I am the Group Creative Director at Mahada Limited, an image consultant, mother of two and wife with a passion for beautiful things and I am from Tanzania.
Being stylish is very important in Africa. This is reflected in our traditional outfits way before "Couture" was even a thing. The bright colours, prints, handmade accessories, elaborately made-up hair, makeup (tribal paint), neatly pressed shirts and so much more are a true reflection of our culture.
Represented clients in the United Kingdom, Kenya, Tanzania and Mauritius. Member of Common Objectives, partner with the Delilah Foundation in Kenya and an ethical ambassador.
I have worked as a freelance stylist and retailer. I graduated with a Higher Education Learner Of The Year Award (2018) in Fashion Styling and with a BA in Fashion Promotion at the University of South Wales.

Becoming an authority in ethical fashion and sustainability
Feeling good and doing good
At Mahada, we believe that beautiful clothes should come from fair trade, not fast fashion. Instead of the usual mass-produced, identikit designs, you’ll find on the high street, our garments are truly unique. Every item is hand-tailored in one small workshop in Mtwapa, Coast Province, Kenya from short runs of eye-catching African print fabric. Designed with passion and made with care. We believe beautiful clothes and respecting our environment can go hand in hand.
Besides being a sustainable label, we use fashion as a means to help disadvantaged women find skilled, well-paid work, and invest our profits in the Delilah foundation that provides education for the local children in Kikambala, Coast Province, Kenya in our village who cannot afford education and all its requirements.
We create desirable objects that give our customers the pleasure to own something new and beautiful whilst also giving something back to our incredible planet. We are proud that for every Mahada garment sold, we will be planting a tree through a tree association in Kenya, Tanzania and Wales. We want to leave the world with a Mahada Forest!
