“In 2010 as I was setting up to open Poisa, I did a shoot in Navasha of the clothes I designed for FAFA 2010. Abraham Ali a fabulous photographer and good friend of mine is the one who  photographed this mini lookbook. I shall add all the pictures from the shoot in the coming days.” ~Patricia Mbela
