KiRette NY, taking Africa to New York

Influenced by their love for culture, fashion, and their African roots, designers Anrette Ngafor and Kibonen Nfi weave traditional and contemporary styles to bring African-inspired designs to the streets of New York .Hatched in the New York chic bubble, KiRette NY is mainly inspired by the "toghu" (also known as the Bamenda gown) - a colourful and intricately embroidered fabric typically worn, on special occasions, by the people of the North West and Western provinces in Cameroon. Although the "toghu" cloth is KiRette NY's signature fabric, their designs are not limited to it.
