They say you can never really run away from your passion. I guess that was it for me. Aside being a marketing MBA holder, I love the arts and I always have. Music, spoken word, writing and most of all fashion. Growing up in Ghana, I’ve always been fascinated with the growing fashion scene in Africa and was always eager to play a role in its growth. My current work with Ennui New York, a New York based online fashion retailer, has only further fueled my passion and equipped me to run Style Summit Africa.
This blog exists for the love of, and belief in the fashion, style and talent of African designers and creators. Our continent inspires design and fashion choices all over the world though people are not always aware of it. And so, my goal is to give credit where it is due and show the world the best of luxury and contemporary African fashion. In doing so, I aim to support African manufacturers and designers in the fashion and crafts industry, and of course feed my love for fashion :). This is about the clothes and accessories, yes, but even more so about the people and stories behind them. The stories and pictures here are all carefully curated to show the style and talent on the continent.
If you are a designer, whether established or up-and-coming, I hope this blog inspires to continue to create! And if you are a fashion consumer that loves to explore, learn new things, and not only likes to turn heads with your sense of style but actually cares where your clothes come from then this blog is also for you. Discuss the content, comment, enjoy, be inspired!
