New obsession alert! Friends Tatiana Santo Domingo and Dana Alikhani are offering a globally conscious (and correct) shopping venture called Muzungu Sisters. I met the girls last Paris Fashion Week, and bought some pieces including an emerald green velvet jacket I can’t live without! The site is a portal for chic little findings they’ve sourced from their travels all over the globe, hence the name (Muzungu is Swahili for traveler or wanderer) . Think an online souk that showcases the amazing abilities of artisans all over the world, promotes fair trade practices, and helps to stimulate their economies as well!
The pair’s newest product is an exciting collaboration with Missoni and CB Made In Italy! Cute little loafers with the unmistakable Missoni zigzag, and proceeds benefit the Small Steps Project, an organization that delivers shoes and hygiene kits to children who live on trash dumps. The shoes debut at the Sisters’ pop up in Paris now through April 26th and on their website, www.muzungusisters.com. Charities that help less fortunate children around the world are very close to my heart, so please log on and shop to make a difference in your look and in the world!
