Suno New York S/S 09 Collection

Dear Amira,

You are so right. One could only be totally smitten ("obsessed") with Suno New York by Max Osterweis. This must be such inspiration for your future collections and fashion-forward thinking.

* With the help of highly skilled sample and patternmakers in New York City’s garment district and talented artisans in small Kenyan workshops, you get one-of-a-kind, authentic pieces that incorporate vintage Kenyan kengas with contemporary silhouettes. The outcome being barely-there minis, leg-baring jumpers, sleeveless dresses, off-the-shoulder blouses, and lightweight, fitted blazers, plentiful in color and print, akin to wearable art.

This collection is gorgeous - has a definite African feel to it with the prints and head-dresses. We love the combination of cultures reflected in the designs.

The photography is high fashion - beautiful!
