Ngoni Rutendo Chikwenengere – or simply NRC as she refers to herself – is a lifestyle blogger and fashion designer. She just debuted at London Fashion Week with her label ‘We are KIN’. For a girl growing up watching Fashion TV on repeat this is a dream come true.
“Presenting a collection at London Fashion Week meant getting organised” remembers Ngoni. “I was constantly circling ideas and to dos with the team.” Check out the video below for the behind-the-scenes view of the exciting moments just before the show, see where she gets her inspiration from and watch how she keeps track of everything by using the Bamboo Spark.
What’s in a Name?
The name ‘We Are KIN’ comes from ideas of kindred spirits. It is a very inclusive brand and collaboration is at the heart of it. Not surprisingly, her work philosophy and advice for other aspiring talents is as clear and straight forward as her design: “Work hard and be nice – you never know who is watching!”
Ngoni finds her inspiration from anything anywhere. She loves travelling, cooking, baking, working out and of course fashion. Her blog IamNRC is a visual diary of all this and keeping up with the constant flow of ideas is so much easier now. “In an ideal world I would be able to sketch my ideas on paper and have them digital. With the Bamboo Spark this is totally possible.”
