I have always wanted a leso attire and when my Dan’s mum gave me this leso fabric during our introduction ceremony, I knew I’d have to make a dress out of it. Other than being bold and vibrant, the fabric is also good quality, best for making whatever you’d want. I did my research on various leso designs and this particular design was inspired by Chepkemboi of ownyourculture who has several leso pieces so check her instagram page for more inspiration.
I had this dress made by Chelagat House of fashion who other than being an awesome tailor, is also a talented designer especially with african pieces. A good designer would be able to cut the fabric uniquely and be able to decide which piece can be fixed at what angle. She also made my dress here and this african print inspired coat here. I think she did justice. What do you think?
