Our Story 

 

Hi, I am the Creative Director at LeEkhaya and my name is Unique Sibanda. I have been in the retail and fashion industry for over 25 years. I am a Fashion Marketing graduate from  Regents University London and a self taught tailor/seamstress. Being a fashion designer for me came as no surprise as I have been designing clothes from the age of 6 and it almost feels like my natural way of being. I specialize  in the uniqueness of creating amazing pieces for the woman that is not afraid to make a subtle statement. 

Le Ekhaya, a Ndebele phrase meaning 'back home', is a brand represents the fusion of my past (culture and heritage), the present (living in the UK and the experience of being diaspora) and the future, (my hopes and dreams and how I envision the life I want to create, I create pieces that speak to the resilience of the Vintage woman, the fragility of "being" and  a clear vision for a selfless future.
