Chico Leco Presents Dinka Translation by Katungulu Mwendwa


 I wrote about the Chico Leco which is a program of The Nest, where they will be Presenting eight stunning collections showcased by conceptual videos from three artistic perspectives.

Katungulu Mwendwa's designs are modern and edgy with an almost ethereal quality and are distinctly grounded in her rich African heritage. Her eponymous collection at the GenArt 'Fresh Faces in Fashion' show during New York Fashion Week 2012 was met with tremendous praise.

Chico Leco Presents her Pre-Fall 2013 collection: Dinka Translation; a collection that takes its main cues from Dinka culture. Read more about the collection here:
