Anna Lukindo can only be described as an experimental designer whose signature style is recognised by her use of zips, yarns, ropes, organic fabrics, cords, and her architectural influences as she was an architectural draughts woman back in her home country of Tanzania.

Now she uses her talent for textile to allows her to create new textures in her work and her skill for experimentation is seen in her use of printing and dyeing from which she creates the most unique and individual pieces of clothing.

End of  2010 Anna Luks was worn by the winning model of the Fashion4Africa showcase.
