December 2016

 

Hello TaSannistas

Happy December to you all. Are you as shocked as we are at how quickly the year has passed. We cant believe we are already in the final month of the year. As much as we hate to see the year come to an end we cant help but get excited by what we have planned for 2017, rest assured we are aiming to make it bigger and better than 2016.

The year 2016 has been fun but it hasn’t been without its challenges. We started off the year wondering how we would fund our 2016 Spring collection and as always our TaSannistas delivered. We are proud of what we were able to achieve this year and it is in great parts thanks to the ongoing support of all those that share in our vision. We were able to raise money towards our production run, it wasn’t easy but together we got it done. In raising the money for our production you helped us create short term employment for our talented artisan tailors in Zimbabwe. We have been able to establish some great working relationships with these talented artists and we look forward to future collaborations with them.

We look forward to growing our production next year so that we can offer sustained employment to our production partners.

Another major achievement was our participation at the August Black Girls Rock Runway Show in San Diego. We were humbled to get invited to participate and it afforded us the opportunity to meet some awesome individuals that we look forward to working with in the future.

We also had some intimate events where we showcased our clothing line and spent some time getting to know our TaSannistas. We plan on holding more of such events in the coming year.

We also got more creative in sourcing our fabrics and called on our amazing TaSannista in Zambia who did such an awesome job at sourcing our fabric for our next collection coming next year. You should Look forward to some fabulous new prints coming to the TaSanni store next year. We look forward to 2017 as we strive to grow our TaSannista tribe and remain appreciative of your ongoing support.

Here is hoping you all have a Merry Christmas, Happy holidays and Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you in the new year !!
