KV: How have things changed for you since then?
Zeddie: The brand name has grown bigger, we’ve been able to do more shows based on the buzz we’v built and been able to meet fashion icons in the industry. Right now we understand where we need to be and what we need to do, what the industry requires and the way execute our plan.
KV: You guys definitely have a great buzz going for you, Arise Magazine editor Helen Jennings mentioned you guys as one of Africa’s top designers to look out for. Tells how do you guys plan to keep that going and most importantly build on that?
Our Spring Summer 2013 (SS13) collection has been creating alot of buzz. Helen has seen the look book and offered her thoughts, so we’re moving in the right direction. So basically we’ve put denim aside to have a feel of other fabrics and its working really good.
KV: Now we’ve noticed that you recently came back to the US, while your partner Sydney stayed in Kenya, is there a plan behind that move?
KV: So lets talk about your Spring/Summer 2013 collection (SS13). We’ve seen the amazing colorful suits, What else do you guys have in store?
At the moment I’m building the brand the best way I know with the help of a small dedicated team. I focus more on the creative part as the team runs everything else.
KV: Have you guys moved away from Maasai prints?
KV: How about the women’s collection? what do you guys have in store for the line?
KV: So within the past year have you guys seen any upcoming young fashion designers from Africa or Kenya that stand out from the norm?
KV: How about established African designers? Who do you guys look up to or who inspires you?
KV: So what’s next for you guys?
