This printed, short sleeve midi dress features a thigh slit, seam detail and 'maneno' print front panel. This dress is cut with a bodycon fit. The colours include red, green, black and white. Care instructions: Hand or machine wash at 30 degrees Celsius. Made in Tanzania.

The 'Maneno Mengi' (translated: 'Many Words') print is inspired by the Swahili proverbs and sayings found on the traditional East African khanga. Local women tend to purchase their khangas based on the featured saying rather than its actual print and use these cloths as a means of quiet communication. For this collection, London based label Chichia explores the concept of communication through dress in their dress concept collection. Offering 13 key dresses every Chichia girl should have hanging in her closet, details such as multi ruffles, tiered dress bodices and skirts, and manipulated style lines are featured throughout the collection. Chichia's signature playful, contemporary and easy to wear silhouettes are realised with a refreshingly vibrant colour palette.
