Designer

Anyango Mpinga is an Eco Innovator who has embraced the principles of circular fashion to explore radical systems in textile design and promote conscious consumption of apparel and accessories. She founded her eponymous brand in 2015, and is renowned for her reimagined white shirts; bold prints; balanced between androgyny and a bohemian aesthetic. She designs with an ethereal quality that is reminiscent of the romantic Victorian age while maintaining a sophisticated boyish edge.

As an influential designer, Anyango is using emerging technologies that convert waste into fashion products to create high-end garments for the progressive buyer. Her designs are meticulously fashioned to redefine the image of circular fashion and evoke a sense of luxury for every wearer who acquires a piece.

She is also a social activist and founder of Free As A Human, a fashion initiative working to raise awareness around Human Trafficking and the forced labour that occurs within the fashion industry supply chain. Her initiative supports the work of Awareness Against Human Trafficking (HAART Kenya).
