African Style...

Looking at the Victoria Falls, from our tent at the Elephant Camp in Zimbabwe.

My all time favorite movie, African Queen inspired fashion and home designers. To day, African style is alive and strong and "fashionable". Keeping the fashion aspect aside, African style runs deep in the core of my designs. I feel at home in Africa's rugged, dry landscape, among the gentle children whose life have been ravaged by warfare. Ever since my first trip to Africa, I am constantly thinking of when to return.... In my New York Showroom, elements of Africa have a strong presence. In my home, African art, photographs, textiles transform what would just be a house into a home.

I hope these few images taken during my travels, or my work will inspired you to bring a little bit of Africa into your life!
