Pink Label Congo
Hanifa is a fashion label from Congo founded by Anifa Mvuemba. The Pink Label Congo is a disrupt collection launched in a creative way on social media with 3D fashion clothes animated into digital fashion shows. This has changed Hanifa forever and get it most known. Pink Label Congo has served its purpose of starting conversations and bringing to light the conditions of Colton mines throughout the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as the beauty and innovation of Africa.
Riddled with a painful history, the beauty of Congo is often untapped and overlooked. The gentleness, beauty, history, poise, majesty, strength, power, and hope of the Congolese spirit inspired this collection. When Anifa created each piece, she was reminded of the stories her mother told her of the women she knew back home in Congo. Women who suffered great loss but still, mustered every ounce of strength everyday to show up. The hope was that this collection inspires all women to stand tall in their power and like the Democratic Republic of Congo, to use their history, whether pretty or painful — to redesign their future. The Congo, is ripe with an abundance of natural resources — the greatest of which are people — its women. Hanifa presents…. Pink Label Congo.
