Known for mixing bold prints and patterns, Syd and Zeddie create aesthetically challenging collections that pair earth tones and vertical stripes, with ankara and plaid fabrics similar to those traditionally worn by East Africa’s Maasai tribe.  In 2011, they took their signature style to the U.S. for their debut at Africa Fashion Week New York, a move that has been well received."
