MODAHNIK is known for the mix of vibrant colors with bold prints. Having lived and traveled in Africa, Europe and America, Kahindo expertly combines these different stylistic elements, bringing a unique point of view to her design aesthetic. A native of the The Democratic Republic of Congo, she pulls inspiration from the Avant Garde spirit of the Congolese art and culture.
The AW13 Modahnik collection features paneling and feminine silhouettes using leather accents that provide a sexy modern edge. The colors are bold, with emerald green and yellow used in the custom print developed for Modahnik this season. The inspiration of the print was a henna tattoo that the Designer Kahindo Mateene got last year at her brother's traditional wedding in Mali, West Africa.
