The Idea

Our founder, Lorna, was born and raised in Uganda and exposed to various cultures through interactions, art, and literature. Fashion for her has always been a way of life and a means of self-expression; her mother is a fashion designer so she grew up surrounded by fashion and its impact on individuals and society.
She moved to Canada over a decade ago, and after a successful career in the corporate world, decided to leverage her experience and skills for the cause she is most passionate about – hence, Msichana was born: using fashion as a medium for collective action to empower women, and building bridges through genuine exposure to people across the globe.
