As a Nigerian, I love watching designers whose lines are heavily influenced by African textiles. I’ve been following [super-expensive] SUNO since it was created in 2008 by Max Osterweis.
Designer Osterweis was inspired by vintage Kenyan fabrics and has an awesome view of Africa, based on a March 2011 interview with the Telegraph.
‘I’m interested in contemporary things, so I wanted to do a collection that women could wear to an art opening, to dinner. I didn’t want to do an “ethnic collection”, whatever that means,’-Osterweis
