A York County woman is using African fabrics to create face masks and clothing to foster togetherness in the community.
Victoria Kageni-Woodard runs Gusa by Victoria. Gusa is also known as touch — Touch by Victoria — is a commercial space located in York City. The fashion line is driven by trends in women’s fashion.
As a native of Kenya, Kageni-Woodard says she created the fashion line to celebrate her heritage.
“We need things that will bring us together,” said Kageni-Woodard .”If there is a subtle way or a friendly space that we can nurture topics like that then what better way then clothing.”
Though Touch by Victoria has put a temporary pause on creating masks, Kageni-Woodard can transform a typical shirt into an embellishment of African print.
The boutique is also now offering sewing lessons for kids to create their own shirt.
