KAHINDO_CLUTCHESKahindo Mateene’s Modahnik is a womenswear brand that features tailored pieces in bold African influenced prints.

Each Modahnik dress is made with the highest quality and attention to detail. Creative Director Kahindo Mateene’s artful draping, and understanding of symmetry transforms ordinary prints into stylish wearable pieces of art that accentuate a woman’s body. We believe that fashion is most stylish when it is produced with the highest ethical and socially conscious principles.

Modahnik is inspired by the Avant garde eclecticism of Congolese art and culture. With vibrant, colorful prints and solids, we combine African textiles with cutting edge patterns, and styles for the sophisticated woman. From Congo to Chicago we cater to the woman with an exquisite sense of style, and a desire to stand apart from the crowd. The Modahnik woman is a global nomad who sees fashion as a creative expression of her independence and individuality.

Kahindo holds a BFA in Fashion Design from Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago and a BA in International Business & Economics, from Blackburn College. She is an alumni of the 2011 class of the Chicago Fashion Incubator at Macy’s on State Street Designer In Residence Program.
