Designer of the Day…Choolips

Today’s designer, Choolips, is the feature today because I’m loving designer Annegret Affolderbach’s use of African textiles and vibrant colors. The collections that make up Choolips use hand printed batiks and draw inspiration from many different areas including everything from Jackson Pollock to 80’s band Bananarama.

Choolips is both organic and sustainable, so rocking one of these great dresses not only allows you to look amazing, but also contribute to a company that prides itself upon ethical practices. These summer-y and feminine frocks that make up Choolips’s collections are made using free-trade textiles, which means that they are produced in countries including Ghana using traditional techniques and ethical practices.

These are just gorgeous!
