A Week ago I debuted at Fashion Week. Writing that is still surreal to me!
As a young designer or even a creative there are certain moments that take you by surprise, you think of them often but don’t ever truly comprehend them. Let’s be real showing a collection, starting a brand etc is something I’d think about before going to bed,
it is was a far away dream several years into the future and for that young girl in Zimbabwe sat watching Fashion TV for hours on end the joy I currently feel transcends locution.
I am truly excited for what the future holds for my team, the brand and I.
The Brand the name We Are KIN comes from ideas of kindred spirits, kinfolk etc. I am heavily inspired by the amazing artists, influencers and creatives around me and as going forward I will be collaborating with them We Are KIN made sense, it’s inclusive, tells you what we are all about and more I can’t yet divulge.
Design We are all about clean lines, sleek design and garments that are cleverly constructed to improve function and also enhance form our price point is one you’ll be very pleased with ha!
I have to thank my amazing team Ksenia Popova, Marin Daley Hawkins, Hayley Elizabeth Durant, Elena Hristova and my main Louise Gunn!
Super special thanks to Abisola Omole and The Apartment team. Having been around since before the first Apartment I consider myself something of a vet lol and to be able to showcase and debut my collection there was just so unbelievably amazing. I am ofcourse super proud of how far she has come and how much further she has to go and she is one of the many awesome women and #girlbosses in my life who inspire me to push through and work harder. Tbh everyone needs an Abi in their life although you can’t have this one, she’s mine.. find your own!
