Sisters of Kenyan and British heritage, Sisi and Elle both studied at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. This background, coupled with a strong interest in fashion and design, led them to found ZikoAfrika in November 2014. ZikoAfrika is a contemporary accessories brand inspired by the dual heritage of the founding sisters. Each product is made in Kenya and reflects both European and African design.
“We love that FA254 is giving a platform to a new generation of young African designers who want to help rede ne how our continent is seen both domestically and in the eyes of the world. This is a fantastic opportunity which has opened us up to new creative ways of thinking and structuring our work that will be invaluable to our creative development as designers and as a brand.“
