About Inonge Anandala van de Wetering

Inonge Anandala van de Wetering was born in Zambia in 1984. She moved to Amsterdam at the age of 20 years, where she obtained her bachelor of arts degree in Communications from inHolland University. She also studied Dutch language and Culture in the Netherlands.

Inonge started designing clothes, bags and accessories trying to mix the zambian and Dutch cultures in terms of fashion, by combining bright African prints with other commonly used prints in the Netherlands and Europe at large.

Inonge has been living on Curacao since 2016 and she is part of UNIARTE, a Caribbean art platform based here on the island. Her work has been featured in the just ended exhibition of the Curacao museum’s 70 years old commemoration.

Apart from designing, she offers different workshops to children and adults. The children’s workshops are designed to encourage them to work with their hands to create things or upcycle old ones. In whatever she creates, Inonge says she aims to portray the beauty of Africa, its culture especially Zambia and its people.  She describes her work as sunny, happy, playful, loving and peaceful.
