Libaya

An exclusive collaboration with Dutch-Congolese Nsimba Valene Lontanga, founder of the made in Africa women’s wear brand LIBAYA. 

Growing up in an orphanage left me looking for love. And this sense of wanting to belong left me for an admiration of siblings and families. I think it’s beautiful to see families together, especially in a culture where community is so important, it becomes so vivid. Meet Mary, Grace and Fafali who live in a small fisherman’s town in Ghana. When we met, our admiration for each other was instantly shared. The power I feel within my body and soul is infinite and that power is strengthened when shared with others. With my intimate and caring approach I wanted to capture their beauty and Libaya’s pure aesthetic fabrics together. In other words, we are not separate. We define each other, we’re all backs and fronts to each other.
