Fashion Spotlight: Anifa Mvuemba

When Kenya native Anifa Mvuemba began designing, she was quite hesitant to start her own line. “It took me a while to believe in myself and to understand that I could actually do it,” she says. After lots of hard work and motivation from friends and family, Mvuemba launched her design label in December 2011. The label is appropriately named Hanifa Mvuemba, which is Arabic for “believe”, and stands as a testament of her journey.

Ranging in price from $35 to $300, Hanifa Mvuemba is a chic, contemporary women’s clothing line varying in different shapes, textures and styles. The current Spring/Summer 2013 collection titled MOD (short for ‘modern’) ranges from long gowns to cocktail dresses and jump suits. Everything is clean, sleek, progressive and sexy.

Although the brand is just shy of 2-years-old, Mvuemba has already released four different collections and has claimed a wide variety of clientele all over Washington D.C. Along with creating pieces for her collections, Mvuemba also designs custom pieces for clients. There is even word of her launching a men’s line later this year.
