Doreen Mashika was born and raised in Tanzania and later moved to Switzerland where she completed her studies and began her career in finance, working for a team that specialized in luxury goods fund management.
Inspired by her the cultural heritage and wealth of design possibilities in Africa, she returned to Tanzania in 2008 to pursue her passion of design while building her eponymous brand, Doreen Mashika.
As her brand grew and her collections expanded, Mashika took home awards such as Accessory Designer of the Year, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa at 2012; and won the African Designers for Tomorrow Competition (ADFT) in 2014.
Today she is proud to present a modern Tanzania to the world, showcasing sleek and cutting-edge designs rooted in bold colours, motifs, and hand-crafted accents.
