Christine Mhando is a Tanzanian-born fashion designer who now lives and works in London, and is this multicultural background that prompted her to create in 2007 Chichia, the brand that bears her nickname as a child. With her clothes Christine manages to create a perfect balance between the costume of the two countries in which she was grown. The peculiarity of her creations, including the spring/summer 2012, is the use of Khanga, the typical printed fabric that African women wrap around the body, as the main material for production. The bright and colorful prints of this garment are so transferred and filtered by the taste of Western society, and transformed into clothes that mix a decidedly street style to a variety of colors and forms that remind of distant lands. A very wearable collection, which brings a wave of energy in the gray city life, without falling into folk and tribal connotations.
