US, UK, France and Italy … we’re used to designers from Europe and the US dominating the fashion headlines. Talent from other countries doesn’t often get the limelight it deserves.

1. Intisaar Mukadam
One of the leading African fashion designers, Intisaar Mukadam takes inspiration from the rich and historical tribal traditions and diversity when designing creation for her self-titled and innovative knitwear line. With a passion for eye catching and bold statement making sprints, Mukadam’s message is not one of subtlety, but instead one of great vibrancy and real eye catching designs.
