Doris & Doris are a mother and daughter team born in Kenya, living and creating in the UK.

They started making African print dresses in 2005 for an Arts & Craft market in Brixton, London, where they still trade. 

Artslang asked Cath Coffey of Doris and Doris to tell us a little more -

“We are inspired by the variety of designs and colours in traditional African fabrics. Our style is a blend of not only of African and British influences, but traditional clothing from all over the world. Bohemian, modern, funky and simple - vibrating from the 60’s and 70’s, striking, stylish women, (Miriam Makeba, Pam Greer, Angela Davis, Betty Davis spring to mind), music straight from the soul, street-life, sun-soaked continents, the good things in life …all coloured by the vibrant and varied flavours of Africa.”

Love their stuff, and love the styling of it too! Someone bring me those African print Jeggings already!

You can also find them on Asos Marketplace

Kola Kuddus’ collection shown at Arise Magazine Fashion Week Lagos is one of my favourites so far. Unafraid to show raw African-ness on the catwalk.
