30 Second Chat... Anna Luks

Tanzanian designer Anna Lukindo is the creative mind behind exciting new label ANNA LUKS. Her first clothing and accessories collection, 'Colour Explosion', featured in Fashion 4 Africa with her winning designs modeled by Samira Hashi, winner of Face 4 Africa 2010.

Anna originally worked in her home country as an architectural draughtswoman before deciding on a move to London to pursue her dream and passion of working in textile and clothing design. After taking some time out to have her family, destiny thankfully led her on to the realisation of her dream. In 2010, Anna graduated from Middlesex University with a BA in Fashion and Textiles.

‘Anna Luks’ designs and signature works are easily recognisable, by the distinct use of eco materials such as yarn, rope, cord, and zips. Taking time out of her busy schedule, the edgy eco-designer chats briefly with Fab Afriq.
