  Mataano are twin sisters, Ayaan and Idyl Mohallim, whose native country is Somalia.  Their family fled to the U.S. to escape the civil  war in their homeland.  Now based in New York, the sisters create clothing that fuses their fashion talents with the cultural influences of Africa.    
  The beautiful colours, fabrics and feminine dresses are created so perfectly making a woman look like a woman.  All the items in the design duo's collections are absolutely fabulous.
