Soon we have lived in Lusaka, Zambia, for a year! Exclamation mark for sure because time just flies. It takes time to settle in, find schools, jobs and where to buy your food but to make a longer story short, we like it here. Zambia is warm, kind and colourful! Almost every day I see something that I have not seen before, a color shift in the dark skies I did not think possible, a tree so, so green or soil very red. Colours are really vibrant and present all the time. For me that is so calming and strengthening! I go for yoga here and it happens that my yoga teacher Towani also is a designer and runs Kutowa Designs. She uses patterns and colours from the Zambian chitenge fabric and designs modern but still classical clothes for both men and women. I found myself a dress in her studio the other week and must say I felt very beautiful in it!
Towani also appeared at CNN African Voices last week where she talks about her fashion and way of life. Check it out here!
