Lesela is the Mobile App That Will Help You Shop African Designers

More African fashion at your fingertips

It's been relatively easy to shop African designers for the few people that know designers personally or have contact with them on social media, but Andile Tshuma and Mamello Khantsi have created a mobile app, Lesela, that connects designers to consumers directly, making local design more accessible than it's ever been.

The app currently features African Revolution Clothing, Fluidity Clothing, Freedom of Movement, Lunar, Sabali Fashion House and Apex Active Apparel  and allows you to shop a wide range of apparel, bags and jewelry. 

The app was founded with the core idea of giving African designers the platform to get their work out into the world and increase visibility, to make it as accessible as European design, after discovering that even on Pinterest African design was not represented.

With Black Friday creeping up, you might want to consider getting familiar with the app well in advance.
