If you’re a keen follower of the uber talented Stella Mwangi a.k.a STL, then you know that without a doubt, she’s the queen of slaying African outfits!
Looks like STL has taken her passion and love for African print fashion a notch higher by launching a clothing line, Vaakiafrika; Swahili for ‘wear African’. The ultra sexy Rapper took to her Facebook page to announce the news to her throngs of fans and followers:
Yaaaaas!!! The D-Day is finally here! I have been waiting for this day for what seemed like a century to me! 😃😃 I have so much to be grateful for today 🙂🙂 1st September, New month, New beginnings!! First and foremost, it is my birthday!! But what excites me most, is that it’s the birth day of my baby #Vaakiafrika !! I share the joy because of all the support and love I’ve received from you guys through out this journey 🙂 Vaakiafrika is a brand that is inspired from traditional African wear, patterns and colors, with a bit of a fashionable Scandinavian touch to it! My whole idea is to appreciate my African culture and to share the African feel with everyone around!!
Vaakiafrika designs are not your average cliche African clothes. The much effort put to achieve the end product is evident, thanks to the mix of different silhouettes, fabric choices and stand out details that not only make them sexy and classy but also modern while staying true to the African theme! We also love the fact that the clothing line includes Dashikis for men thus catering to a wider spectrum of fashion enthusiasts.
