Continuing with our study of CFI Designers in Residence, the next designer to keep a eye on is Kahindo Mateene. A graduate of the Illinois Institute of Art – Fashion Design Program, she is influenced by the dichotomy of her vibrant African heritage fused with western design sensibilities. The brightly colorful African print is the signature of Modahnik, the designs are modern, feminine and visually appealing with an underlying sexiness. Modahnik has a socially conscious mission at its core: to produce in Africa using fair trade practices. Indulge in the Modahnik experience at www.modahnik.com.
