Tina Lobondi established her Fashion label in Notting Hill, London in 2011. Combining African heritage with delicate French couture, her designs are up market. The label focuses on class and innovation producing exclusively 5 pieces per design which unveil limited availability and creates an emotional connection to the brand. Tina Lobondi forges a dynamic synthesis of elegance and edginess to shape a striking silhouette with an infinite attention to detail and finish, producing classic and chic ready-to-wear.
From India to Congo, materials are sourced globally and the collections are entirely produced in Paris and London. Fabrics are often printed with Africa-inspired patterns and mixed with precious materials such as silk and organza. The designer’s work has been published in press such as Channel 4, Forbes Afrique, ITV, Forbes Woman Africa, Marie-Claire and ELLE Magazine South-Africa, British Soap Awards, LOOK Magazine, OK Magazine, and BBC Africa.
Tina has worked with numerous artists including Grammy Award winner and New York based singer Angelique Kidjo, London based singers Lianne La Havas and Xfactor’s Chloe-Jasmine Whichello, and actress Thandie Newton amongst many other public figures.
