Brazilian born and of Ivorian and Centrafrican origins, Loza Maléombho was raised in Abidjan, Côte-d’Ivoire (W. Africa.) At age 14 and still ignorant of Fashion design as a profession, she found interest in designing dresses for her mother aunts and sisters and put together fashion competitions for her cousins. It wasn’t until 2000, that she moved to the United States. In 2006 she graduates from the University of the Arts of Philadelphia then moves to New York City with a mission to gain fashion experience.
Loza Maléombho has been described as “African street chic fashion.” The label is a high street fashion brand founded in 2009 and based in New York City. While suggesting contemporary clothing to a fashion forward and international woman it is a mixture of modern and trendy silhouettes with an ethnic and tribal edge in textile. Loza Maléombho as a brand stands for the idea that Fashion could make a radical change in the West African job market and believes that health and education provide for better economic development. Therefore, not only will a percentage of benefit provide for schools and hospitals in W. African countries, it will also create jobs by installing local factories and workshops for the production.
For the past seven years, HauTeFashionAfrica.com has stayed the foremost African Fashion Website, exhibiting a taste for the cultural tempered with an appreciation of the varied degrees of influence by the west in today’s fashion.
Well, it’s no news that African Fashion has been received extremely well locally and globally, but that makes us think, what is next after the promotion? How better can we communicate and assist the progress of African Fashion as we have done in the past?
We have our ideas, which we are looking forward to implementing, but…
