The Muzungu Sisters Pop-up Shop at the Momo Cafe in Mayfair
The Muzungu sisters (Dana Alikhani and Tatiana Santo Domingo) run a fashion and lifestyle brand, focussing on ethically sourced products from around the world. They're opening a pop-up store at the Momo Cafe in Heddon Street, to run until the end of December.
"Spanning a broad range of ethnicities from around the world, the current Muzungu Sisters collection includes lace shawls from India and embroidered boots from Morocco. The items are handmade, using in many cases, age-old techniques. These products offer a taste of far-flung lands and a unique alternative to the High Street’s off-the-peg options. Prices do, however, reflect this. Dana and Tatiana’s own favourites from the collection include bolero jackets from Peru and Mochilas (bags) from Colombia. It is clear as I talk to them, that they live their brand, not least from Dana’s jacket, a luxurious looking Moroccan velvet item from the collection.
Launching on 31 October, the day before the online store, and running up until the end of the year, it is something of lengthy launch party for Muzungu Sisters. The pop-up offers a physical space to show off items from the first collection, and an unusually pleasurable alternative to Christmas shopping."
