I can’t lie, of the designers from the Congo, Malleni Peace had to be my favourite. Each design just worked with the plight of African fashion today. We can’t just continue to add print to a dress and expect to call ourselves designers. Malleni took her designs a far step further. I think we are yet to catch up with her. Just view these lovely garments.
