KAHINDO is an independent woman's ready-to-wear design label based in New York city. Founded in 2009 under the name Modahnik, the brand was born of founder Kahindo Mateene's desire to create a line that infuses the nostalgia and modernity of the two cultures of her upbringing, American and Congolese. KAHINDO pairs mid-century Americana silhouettes with traditional Congolese influences, creating garments that empower women in all of their femininity. KAHINDO creates statement pieces for the progressive woman. KAHINDO has been featured in WWD, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Tatler, Huffington Post, Essence and Marie Claire.
