KACHI DESIGNS Set to Showcase In Lagos, NIGERIA!
Ankara-inspired KACHI DESIGNS stands true to what she wants to become, a BRAND.
Chigozie “Chichi” Anaele self taught herself to sew less than a year ago and birthed Kachi Designs. With her label, she aims to transform West African textiles and patterns into unique custom-made pieces.
KACHI DESIGNS has been moving swiftly as she grabs for the household name in the frenzy fashion industry. She has showcased show-stopping pieces at the Amobi Okoye Foundation Gala, NASA, and the annual Houston IFEST in early May just to name a few! With the Houston IFEST under her belt, she will be showcasing across seas in Lagos, Nigeria for the 2011 “Night of Elegant Fashion”, a platform set to expose beauty of African designs. The show will be held at the Mission Centre Onikan Lagos on May 28th, 2011.
In the midst of losing her entire fall collection to a blazing fire in April, Chichi has stood with grace and poise. As she plans to travel to the fashion capital of Nigeria, she is bringing out the long gowns and chic dresses for the outspoken and daring. Rest assured, her pieces will carry meaning and every stitch will come with her inspiration streamlining the carefulness of determination!
Kachi conjures up the animated and fun-loving side of every woman. Her eclectic collections of contemporary and vintage-inspired apparel and accessories imbue life through African culture. She treats silhouettes as canvases to be filled with kaleidoscopic patterns and colors—transforming fashion into art. Her brand is primarily anchored in representing the versatility of ankara— a 100% cotton fabric, patterned to perfection and popularized by West Africans. You’ll find that Kachi Designs are multi-faceted and whether ready-to-wear, or custom-made, Kachi pieces bring life and sophistication to any wardrobe.
