About the New S/S17 collection …
The Spring Summer 2017 Collection named “Utopia”, has a Royal vibe with its colours and materials. It very much represents what our brand stands for, Elegance, Passion and Class.
Founder Lobondi reiterates the importance of AFWL as “the platform for African Fashion in the UK”.
She launched a social initiative to work with young adults and children in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and feels “It was important for me to take part this year to raise more awareness about my organisation and coming activities in Congo. Our new collection goes back to my roots and the vision I have for Congo in the future.”
Tina Lobondi is currently stocked in the US, South Africa, UK and France. Their VIP club will be launching next year.
