'Rafiki' means 'Friends' in Swahili & that's exactly how the relationship between the 2 starts.

'Rafiki' was one of the many films...

Do you have a favourite designer whom you stalk & whose designs have always been on your wishlist? Well, I do, quite many of them & of course they are all African Designers.

Denim jackets are currently all over runways, Fashion magazines & on social media, but with embellishments such as embroidery & interesting patches. I have been, as any fashion lover been consumed with the desire to own one, but the reality is that they come at a price, a very high one most of the time.
