Award winning Mtoko Designs has fast become one of the most interesting players in the Tanzanian menswear arena. Headed by Salim Ali, the fledgling fashion house unveiled its third collection, Mng’ao at Alliance Francaise in Dar es Salaam earlier this month. Producing only original, handmade garments, featuring khanga and kitenge details, Mtoko Designs is leading the way on the Tanzanian fashion scene. Its recent promotional fashion shoot (pictured above) took place at Dar hotspot, Nyumbani Lounge, and encapsulates the brand’s cheeky, retro feel.
