“Kaleidoscopic Love Bird was the original name of this Spring Summer 2014 Swahili Fashion Week Collection was inspired by the astonishing, luminous and symmetrical shapes of its print.
The print could almost suggest that it was the reflection of the visions seen at the other end of a Kaleidoscope. The multiple reflections seen at the other end of a Kaleidoscope inspired the pattern placement of this collections design.
With every twist, the kaleidoscope makes magic with light and mirrors. Kaleidoscope, meaning beauty, is a toy used to observe beautiful forms. Love Bird is a collection that worships and acknowledges beautiful forms, the several beautiful forms of a Lady Bird.”
Eskado Bird is an evolving Tanzanian fashion and lifestyle brand inspired by the 21st Century Afropolitan movement. The labels modern collections have a fresh and sensual feel, creating alluring silhouettes that compliment our woman by making her look confident and feel effortlessly styled.
Doreen Noni is the owner and Creative Director of Eskado Bird. Her effortless talent, contemporary vision and connection to her African roots have fueled her rise in the fashion industry in Tanzania over a very short period of time.
“My inspiration to create the label came from my mother, Jacqueline Daniel who set up a Boutique in 1991, then known as Eskado Boutique, naming it after me, her last born and only daughter, Estazia(ES) Kang’wa(KA) Doreen(DO)”, says Doreen. “After discovering that my surname, Noni, is actually a bird from my father’s village, I decided to merge the two names to form a new label that represents my full entity – ESKADO BIRD” explains Doreen.
