Kutowa Designs  is a fashion label for women & men based on the concept of classic and timeless garments inspired by the lifestyle of contemporary explorers and people on the move. Each garment demonstrates a relaxed yet elegant approach to fashion with a particular attention to detail and craftsmanship.

We had a chance to ask this Zambian things about her label, here is what she had to say

1.    Why did you decide to become a fashion designer? 

Because I was not finding the type of clothing I wanted, modern yet African, and began to design them myself from the fabric my mother brought mum from her travels around Africa as a women's right activist.

2.    What is your favorite part about being a fashion designer?

Conversing with fabric to see what they'd like or could be and seeing these designs come to life.

3.    What are your plans for the future?

To make Kutowa a global fashion label.

4.    What is your philosophy about fashion?

Keep it simple, classic, elegant bring out the beauty of the fabric and the person wearing the garment

5.    Does your work reflect your personal fashion taste? Can you describe your style?

It sure does reflect my personal taste! Ultimately started designing garments so I could wear something reflecting who I am.  I'd describe by fashion taste as Afro Chic.  African fabrics in contemporary classic stylish cuts, showing African roots in a modern world.
