Mangishi Doll (MD) is a collection of Afro-Eclectic pieces, inspired by bold prints and unique style. It is a contemporary line intentionally crafted for the Doll that dares to stand out. Their pieces are not specific, each collection is different and can easily morph into the unexpected.
Mangishi Doll was founded and created by Kapasa Musonda, an African designer who was born and raised in Zambia. She insights the beginning of her fashion journey at age 17, where she was awarded a full Scholarship to study Fashion Design from FIDM (Fashion Institute Of Design & Merchandising) in Los Angeles, California. She worked in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and New York and soon after returned to Zambia in 2011 where she currently runs the Mangishi Doll Studio.
Whilst trying to find her feet as a creative, Kapasa started developing the MD brand, designing individual and custom made pieces. Mangishi Doll finally came to life in 2015, with the brand selling its first piece online and breaking into the international market.
It’s been almost two years and the brand is steadily growing with an online presence that has channeled exports to each continent. This has kept the MD Design & Production team inspired and motivated. Now at 27, Kapasa is confident in the growth of the MD brand and looks forward to the prospects of the future.
“Above all, it will always be about getting our pieces out there, out there beyond the Zambian border, beyond Africa to places we could have only ever imagined ourselves. It is purely why we design!”
The ‘MDSummer Essentials’ is a capsule collection of what we feel the MD woman could not possibly do without this Summer. True to our design aesthetic, it is a blend of bright bold prints, unexpected yet rhythmic mixes, and easy breezy silhouettes. We designed this collection with every woman in mind, knowing that Summertime is the best time to express yourself and we wanted to be a part of that!
