MamMaw turn up the heat on the runway this summer

Get ready to sizzle this summer in sexy African inspired clothing, as we introduce

leading online fashion brand, MamMaw, to the Run Your Way Catwalk. Colour is

in this summer and MamMaw have the vibrant, ethnic style to help you rock the

look. This independent brand is truly cutting edge, taking high fashion designs

and recreating them with a bold ethnic flair. Specialising in dresses, skirts and

tops made using Ankara styles, African patterns, Kente cloth and traditional

fabrics, MamMaw will showcase a range of outfits that will get your wardrobe

ready for summer. Think loud colours, innovative patterns and flattering

silhouettes that create eye-catching outfits for every fashionista.

Shantel, the owner of MawMaw has a true eye for fashion and has created this

brand to bring African style and culture to the fore. Having taught herself to sew

at the age of 4, Shantel’s innovation, creativity and eye-catching designs led her

up the fashion chain, initially sewing clothes for Notting Hill Carnival before

getting involved with big brand names such as Phase 8 and Topshop. She has

also worked the prestigious New York Fashion week with the team at Cynthia

Rowley - an accolade to her talent, style and hard work. Shantel created

MawMaw 4 years ago and her raw talent is evident in her all aspects of her

exciting brand and dynamic designs.

African style and culture is the inspiration behind the brand. All MamMaw

clothing is designed in London and proudly handmade in Ghana, an important

part of the brand’s heritage. MamMaw works in partnership with local African

artisans, to create a partnership that gives local Africans new skills with modern

technology and harnesses a partnership that promotes a socially conscious work

ethic. This aspect of MamMaw is in constant development with Shantel looking

for more innovative ways to increase employment for local Africans globally and

boost local trade.

If you love fashion, you will love this brand. Shantel’s passion for style, creativity

and fashion is evident in every aspect of her brand. She infuses this love of

fashion with a cultural flair that creates a desirable African inspired look for

every woman to rock. We can’t wait to have MamMaw bring the ethnic summer

vibe to the catwalk this July. Make sure you see them on the runway and head

over to their stall where you’ll have the chance to get your hands on their hot

summer styles.
