biography

Creative Base was founded by Christopher Ngalu, a fashion and graphic designer from Mzuzu, Malawi. Launched in 2013 with operations in both the designer’s home country of Malawi as well as in South Africa, the brand celebrates African culture, heritage, and history with bright prints and bold designs, infused with 90s nostalgia. Speaking with MBC Malawi about how his roots inspire his design, Ngalu said, “It’s all about balance, as Africans we need not to forget our unique and broad culture. As a designer, I am inspired by what I am exposed to through the media and what I see everyday, that is why my line reflects on the co-existence of both worlds.”
