Celebrating womeN through style
MADE IN AFRICA
Inspired by women, Libaya introduces a variety of style forward African made ready-to-wear items for the global style conscious women’s wardrobe. Deriving from the Bantu language, Lingala, which is mainly spoken in DR CONGO, LIBAYA means a “traditionally tailored women’s top”, which is the essence of the brand – reminiscent of the founder’s cultural background.
Libaya speaks to women who want to look good and feel good. Elegant yet playful, and as feminist as it is feminine, the brand is influenced by an African way of dress – where women traditionally wear a personal tailored made top that doesn’t need much more than a cloth around the waist to celebrate their own unique beauty. Holding style elements such as off-shoulder, ruffles and flairs, the African aesthetics remind the world that African feminists in the streets of the Congo to Ghana and the ones that crossed borders — have always been part of the global book of style.
MADE WITH LOVE
While combining inspiration from the past and present, we create versatile and feminine styles that reflect the now, currently working closely with local partners in Africa, to create new futures. Therefore Libaya brings life to items that maintain a honest spirit, authenticity and stories every woman will be proud wearing.
