Show Fashion Files conversations with Rene Macdonald
Head designer Rene Macdonald of Lisou, a London based Women’s fashion brand that specialises in beautiful silk pieces with an array of colourful prints with a twist. Growing up in Tanzania and moving to the UK at a young age, Rene travelled back and forth to Africa, where her family was based, influencing and inspiring her womenswear collections.
The Lisou collection is full of wearable, classic shapes with a modern twist and are made from the finest silks. All prints are designed in-house by Rene, which makes every Lisou print exclusive. One of our core beliefs is to make a positive global impact; to that end we donate the proceeds from one piece per collection directly to helping young Africans with medical and educational needs.
In addition to this, we run an annual initiative in partnership with local schools supporting creative arts in our local community. We believe in quality above all else, and a return to the days of slow fashion and treasure box investment pieces. All our products are designed in London, finished in Portugal, and delivered directly to you.
