Modahnik is a Chicago based womenswear brand founded in 2009 by designer Kahindo Mateene. Kahindo, a native of the Democratic Republic of Congo founded Modahnik (an anagram of her first name and last initial).
Modahnik is inspired by the Avant garde eclecticism of Congolese art and culture. With vibrant, colorful prints and solids, we combine African textiles with cutting edge patterns, and styles for the sophisticated woman.
This brand for us here at AFG is becoming well associated with dresses and dressing women UP. 50′s style pencil skirts through to the New Look era of full skirts it epitomizes femininity. The prints are beautiful and not difficult to wear but making sure you will stand out in the crowd for sure.
We are loving the pencil skirt and the back details on the dresses accentuating the womans’ new hotspot body feature. Check it out for yourself below and tell us your thoughts!
