SIMMA AFRICA is an African Fashion brand dealing in ladies’ gentlemen and children wear. SIMMA has an afro-urban flare mixing African print fabric with lace, chiffon, African bazaar, linen, leather, traditional silk, backcloth and animal prints. SIMMA designs for both commercial and fashion purposes. The commercial end covers constructive daily wear like African dresses, blazers, shirts, suits, bridal wear, red carpet looks, school uniforms and sweaters to mention but a few. The fashion and style section draws from an eccentric animalistic view. A fusion between techno, hard and metal rock, tribal drum beats, animal sounds, nature calls, serene environments, noisy bus stops and more enable SIMMA as a designer to sketch abstract and soft blends which then comealive in the workshops and are later seen on runways, artists, shops, brides and manyfashion forward individuals.
