Past program

Join Collective Closets sister duo and Melbourne Now designers, Fatuma and Laurinda Ndenzako, for a beading workshop for all ages.

About the designers 

Collective Closets was founded in 2016 by sisters, Fatuma and Laurinda Ndenzako. Paying homage to their late mother and talented seamstress, Stella, the brand was born as a way to celebrate the women in their community. Together, the pair are passionate about telling stories, giving back and uniting women through a universal sartorial dialogue. 

Collective Closets was created to fill a gap in the Australian market – one that connects to the talent, beauty and rich history of the African continent. Each Collective Closets collection is a celebration – of both the incredible artisans who make the threads and the beautiful people who wear them.
