My favorite Nigerian Designer Deola Sagoe……if there is anyone like her…someone please let me know because I love her colorful lace and print designs….you should see her haute couture…its ….OMG…..AMAZING…..and FANTABULOUS. Kirette couture caught my eye with those mankon patterns drawn all over them…..My father would love to see what beautiful modern fashionable designs have been created from our traditional attire.

By now you’re wondering why Cameroon and Nigerian clothing designs!!….Well first of all I hail from these two beautiful West African nations, so naturally I rep them. West Africa in general, Cameroon, Togo, Benin,Ghana and Nigeria among others are well renowned  for their modern , colorful print materials and each of these nations have hand woven designs and materials which are specific to them. Most African textiles and designs could even be found in todays spring collection by many European and American designers, but most buyers and viewers are oblivious to their origin. Some of these upcoming mainstream designs are the raffia bags, and waist beads sold on the streets of the Bronx and Manhattan.


If the western media ignores or does not bring the Jewels of Africa, and its progress to light, then may be its our responsibility to do so….so im taking it a day at a time……Enjoy!!

..oh oh….question of the day!!!…who knows where the roots of the lyrics used by Michael Jackson and Rihanna’s….mama se mama sa ma makossa….stem from?
