Celia Smith’s mission to find the common thread in style and substance led to this intricately woven and refined mix of the Maasai beadwork on cotton canvas. With fashion industry experience that spans from magazines to trend forecasting, the Fashion Editor sought to broaden the market for local artisans from Nakuru, Kenya by introducing them to new homes in a chic way, and providing employment that would keep their traditions alive while sustaining their families and communities.
