Arise Fashion Week has come and gone but we are stiill reeling from all the fabulous designs and designers that showed. As well as Nigerian designers, Arose made sure to bring some international designers and one of the ones that caught our eye was Quiteria and George who brought the ball to town with their stunning tulle dresses. We bring you a profile on the dynamic duo.

Kekana and Malelu met in 2010 when Kekana was the ambassador at Mpumalanga Fashion Week and Malelu was showcasing his collection. They met, clicked and the magic was born and as they say, the rest is history.
