Mesanga Fashion House: A Design to Watch

August 10, 2012
Several designers showcased at the African Fashion Week New York (AFWNY) . A few of them were proudly Cameroonian. I cannot express enough how proud these girls are making me feel right now. One that stood out especially was the Mesanga Fashion House by designer Mesanga Sama. 
This was her first real real runway showcase and I must say I loved every piece that came strutting down that runway. Gave me chills. It feels good and exhilarating when someone you know personally follows their passion, works hard to achieve their dream and finally triumph. I probably say this a lot but diligence, hard work and faith do pay off.

About the collection.

This collection is called ‘Liwato La Merzono.’  And Mesanga explains that:
“Essentially liwato la merzono means garment of colour in my native tongue Bakweri and that is what I thought of first before I sketched out this collection. It is cosmopolitan and suited for women all over the world who want to be colourful.” 
And I do love colour, so this collection is definitely for me. A minty blue is  dominant and recurring  throughout the collection which makes it quite current and contemporary given that mint shades have taken this season’s fashion world by storm. The designs are also accented with the rich ankara textures that reflect back to the designer’s heritage.
Let’s see what you make of it.
