House of Nalo strikes again

By Matty K. Kaminzi

For Namibian DJ and designer Alba Nalo there is no picking between being a DJ and a designer as they are both a part of her life. Her love for both the arts has given her the ability to remain consistent in doing both and winning at it.

Her design business, Nalo House which she has been running successfully is not just another store, she described what sets it apart is the fact that every design is made from scratch. They create each of their designs from scratch using the old pencil and paper approach she said.

She has a new collection called Abstracts from the Motherland the collection is inspired by the shape of the Namibian map. She says she got the idea from the African shaped accessory items we see around and felt why not create some using the Namibian map. She hopes to make Namibian shaped accessories go mainstream someday.

Many of us tend to do things at times maybe just because we have to do it so we get something out of it, for Alba Nalo both of her career choices are a passion. Hearing her describe how being a DJ meant to her truly shows it is more than just a career choice. 

 “Music will always be my first love, it got me through the toughest times of my life so I will always make time for it. The fact that I really love creating is what fuels my consistency, there is a certain high that I get when I get an idea and I immediately want to bring it to life without wasting any time,” she said.
