Rockford artist Kelvin Candie releases the Ingoma fashion collection | Instant News

ROCKFORD – New fashion collection, “Ingoma,” officially launched this month.

Local artist Kelvin Candie says The High and Mighty celebrates his Malawian heritage and is also a love letter to Rockford.

“This brand is for everyone,” he said. “We wanted something versatile enough that (anyone) could wear it, even your grandmother.”

The Ingoma collection is for both men and women and includes dresses, skirts, sweatpants, t-shirts, crop tops and more. Candie says that when she designs, she also thinks about women being over sized to be more “inclusive”.

The artist who is a fashion designer, said that it has always been his dream to own a brand. The High and Mighty was not an original creation, but its previous owner, Mario Martinez, gave it to him as a gift.

“Initially, I wanted to collaborate with the owner, but over time our schedules clashed and in the end he said, ‘You are really excited about this project; what if you just had it? ” ‘
