Tumie Mohoasa

Ngüo by Tumie Mohoasa (BW)

A Swahili word for dress, nguo was born out of need for nonconventional mainstream fashion different from the usual emphasis on snatched waist and hip hugging outfits common with women’s clothing.

Tumie Mohoasa, the style curator at ngüo, started making her own dresses for occasions after she got no joy from store bought clothes, with a little sewing machine bought on sale at game stores some years ago.

Ngüo, which currently employs two women, the curator and the tailor, was born.
