Studio 189: SS1629 May 2016
Actress Rosario Dawson and Adrima Erwiah from Studio 189's have interpreted the current craze for indigo/ shibori (and boro) to perfection via Ghana in their men/women SS16 collection.
The two friends who founded their brand as a social business back in 2013, empower local artisans in Ghana through employment, and encourage emerging talent from allover Africa and its diaspora through different collaborations.
There are so many amazing people that are doing quality handworks but lacking the next stage: the network, the opportunity to make it modern, more accessible, etc. I felt that we could help bridge that gap.
As big aficionados of African fashion we couldn't agree more and recommend you to find out more about Studio 189's amazing collection and social engagement on their website.
