KWABO DJ'S TEAM
Designer Bio Kwacha Luka a confident Malawian born woman, came to Australia with her parents at a young age. Since then she has always been inspired by fashion .
Kwacha having a vibrant, enthusiastic and witty personality, was not interested in being a normal student in school. Throughout her school years she showed her loud personality and was usually sketching clothing. As the years went by Kwacha continued to develop her passion for clothes into a fashion line called "Kwacha Fashionista". She also decided to teach herself sewing through watching Youtube videos.
Kwacha's clothes line shows a twist of Malawian and Australian designs. She uses a variety of inspiration from other fashion designers as well as what she sees around her. It is the dynamics of her passion, culture and personality that shows in her clothes line.
PAINTER VISUAL ART
My name is Christa Myrthe, I am originally from Mauritius Island. In my 3 years in Australia I studied Psychology at Victoria University In Foostcray Park and worked with children of different age groups across Melbourne. Art in general is an integral part of my life; painting, drawing and crafts are my passion. Art is also one of the reasons why I started a blog ‘afrocheets’ on natural hair on Instagram. The blog is dedicated to embrace the beauty of curly, kinky and coyly hair. I believe that these hair types are versatile for its texture and just like a canvas it gives the opportunity to create the most amazing masterpiece. In addition to the blog I also helped my sister Donna Myrthe to create her project called Creole Craftwhere we used African flags as an inspiration to do earrings. As an Island girl I love music and dance, therefore it was a pleasure to participate in Grace’sKwabo festival project.
