Our Designers; Lavo de Lamo

By Christine

I love the fact that there so many upcoming designers now that are doing really well and their works are really nice and creative. While we attended the My Skin, My Pride Fashion (get a glimpse of it here) event we met a few of the designers and got to interview some of the designer

Let's meet Upendo Mkonya the lady behind Lavo de lamo designs (lavo_delamo.designs)

According to Upendo her creative juices ran in the family as she was inspired to be a designer from her mother who owned a tailoring place and thus, growing up she was already exposed to the world of fashion.

When she was in school she used to do fashion shows and design some clothes for the models which all encouraged her toward realizing her dream . By the time she finished school she already knew what she wanted to do and in 2015 she started her brand and hustled to be the designer we know today.
It wasn't easy but through good marketing strategy and good work(designs) she was able to reach her customers and since then she has been able to attend various big and small fashion shows to give her more exposure in the fashion Industry of Tanzania.

Well Let's see some of Upendo's work and be sure to check out more on her Instagram page (@lavo_delamo.designs) for her works, directions and more updates of her.

What an incredible designers we have and let's continue supporting them and support local business so as we can represent even further in this fashion industry.

Until next time,
