This is a fabulous line of clothes that I literally stumbled upon. The proprietor of MNBO: IntuloYane specializes in using the bright, bold and beautiful African fabrics to create unique designs of Shoes, Bags, and fashion Accessories. Minivah the creator and owner of IntuloYane is definitely one that feeds my obsession for all things African in fashion. Recently I got my hands on a pair of Fabulous Chitenge dressed Wedges, Clutch and Bangle set… and also a pair of Chitenge dressed pointy heels. And I want more of course.
What I love most about this line is her use of the various the textures, patterns, and colors of the African fabrics that creates very unique personalized pieces, to suit the feel and personality of each customer.
According to Minivah,
“The Aim of the brand is to help the modern day woman or man, identify with and embrace their culture while at the same time fusing it with contemporary western style and fashion.”
So I had a text-terview with her a few weeks back. Extracts from our BBM chat are pasted below. Also search for her products on facebook for more pictures and information on shipping and such.
