Katungulu Mwendwa is a young, enthusiastic, up and coming fashion designer born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya. Like many, she grew up entertaining a fabulously vivid imagination. As the years passed, her eclectic personality stayed intact but reality and imagination became more distinct.

She combines these experiences and inspirations to create an unusual mix that is new and exciting.
