Afro Fashion September 2023

Mehmuna Ibrahim Schumann's journey around Africa is a tapestry woven with the threads of her diverse family background and multicultural experiences. As a fashion designer, Mehmuna blends the stories of her travels and history into every masterpiece she creates. Her focus on slow fashion is a testament to her passion for local production and preserving the beauty of indigenous craft. Living in Mali has enriched her love for the African continent and the traditional ways of cotton farming, transport, weaving, dyeing, and storytelling through paintings.

Mehmuna's commitment to sustainability is evident in her designs that can be worn in many different ways, reducing the impact of fashion on the environment. Her work has been featured in "Renewable Matter," an international magazine that highlights the importance of sustainable fashion and modernising it for today's world. Inspired by the beauty of Africa and its unaccountable wonders, Mehmuna brings a timeless quality to her fashion, incorporating various fabric techniques into her designs. SS24 collection.
