I love this African label. ZUVAA, a new community for African Fashion – Founded in 2013 by US-based entrepreneur Kelechi Anyadiegwu, ZUVAA is a new online store that showcases African inspired fashion from all over the world. Zuvaa comes from the Shona language of Zimbabwe and means ‘sunshine.’ ‘Zuvaa’ represents the vibrant and positive spirit of the continent of Africa and how you let your personal light shine.

TOMS has collaborated with The Haiti Artist Collective to create limited edition, hand painted shoes that benefit the cause of creating sustainable jobs there. Such a great concept. I love the tropical green ones in the middle!

There is a new Tumblr that is going viral called WHERE I SEE FASHION that connects high fashion to objects and scenery that are all around us.
Amazingly you will see how flawlessly the connections are made between nature, buildings and structures, and colors and high fashion. Which is your favorite connection? #fashionfriendsofTenaciousM enjoy!
