December ushers in grey mornings and breezy nights thanks to the harmattan winds, which also served as inspiration for the colour palette of our collection. The “Harmattan Tribute” is our way of paying homage to our source of inspiration.

Harmattan Tribute was greatly influenced by the jazz age and ‘70s hippies with fabrics carefully chosen for their subtlety and boldness in colour and lightness in weight.

Grey was our new black and Ankara appliqués and highlights aided us in beating our ethnic drums to show appreciation to the gods and ancestors for blessing us with two beautiful backdrops for our creativity – the motherland (Africa) and the skyline.

And you, our wearer, you continuously show us that femininity will always be in vogue. It has never been our intention to let you emulate another. No, you are an individual, you are unique, you DEFINE fashion. Harmattan Tribute seeks to accentuate your femininity, portray your soulfulness and help celebrate the Eve, Cleopatra and Nefertiti you are.

We hope you will enjoy wearing any piece of the collection much as we enjoyed creating them.

Dear All,

We know it has been long. We never intended it to be so.

Pictures of some pieces of our Harmattan Tribute will be uploaded soon.

Concluding pieces of the new collection will be unvieled on 2nd Jan. 2010 @ Citizen Kofi courtesy the BeBold project.

We assure you that the new collection will make the wait worthwhile.

the 'Glamourous Jane' dress
the Cleo Monostrap
the Lulu Flamingo dress
the Pearl Strapless dress
the Mya High Waist skirt


the Elsie Banson gown. Named after my stylish grandmother. one word to describe the concept behind it would be 'whimsical'
the "Adwoa Ahenfoa" blue cocktail dress displays innocence with class and the "Abeke" which is showcased in a vivacious sequined fabric simply cut.

the "Alake" suit

"Alake" means one to be honoured.
This masculine cut suit with a feminine finishing was named after my sister who is obviously rocking the ensemble. A great desk to dinner piece which can tell two different stories for the wearer.
@ the office - she is the serious team player who achieves all set targets.
after five - with vodka in one hand, the office girl can party hard!
