Rwandan twins showcase fashion designs at NYFW

Fashion designers, known as the Uwi Twins, are making their debut at the New York Fashion Week this week with their collection “I Left My Heart in Africa”.

The 27-year-old twin brothers, Reuben and Levi (pictured above), fled the Rwandan genocide when they were children and grew up in Canada.

Levi told BBC that going through the genocide “instilled the mentality within us that we have to be chasing your dreams right now because you don’t know what’s going to happen”.

Levi said the gold print in the collection “symbolises the richness of resources in Africa”.
