The Musisi (singular) and Misizi (plural) is a dress worn by women that is popular in the Zambezi Region of Namibia and western Zambia.  It consists of two skirts with a stiffened top layer to keep the shape of the dress.  It is popular for the dress to be made from satin and worn with a matching blouse (known in Silozi as a Baki)  and a small wrap, known as a Chali. When a girl reaches puberty her parents, traditionally, has to buy the Musisi outfit for her.  This dress was made by Sikopo Venessa from Zambezi region.  (Collection of the Museum of Namibian Fashion)
