And who better to start with than BOXING KITTEN?
|Fall 2009 Collection|
So the designer may not be African herself but she has studied African - American cultures and uses Ankara fabric from West Africa. Brooklyn born Maya Amina Lake is none other than the amazing lady behind these designs.

Maya's work is inspired by Vintage clothing from the 50's and 60's (which automatically makes her my most favourite person in the world) She has been sweeping successful - Boxing Kitten has been featured in magazines like Vogue, been seen on red carpets, also celebrities like Solange and Beyonce Knowles, Fergie have been spotted wearing the brand.
