The House of Osun displayed this trend during the show featuring hand painted designs inspired by the Yoruba deity of all that is beautiful, sensual, and womanly.
We had a great time viewing other designer's take on fashion inspired by a culture's traditions. Our collection embraces the rich royal tradition of Ghana.
Kente cloth has a long history in Ghana dating back centuries ago to Chief Oti Akenten's reign. At that time, the caravan trade routes of the Sahara were flourishing with the exchange of goods that included dyed silks from the East. The fabric made such an impression on Chief Akenten that he moved to develop the Kente band weaving system. Currently, the technique is extremely specialized and there are countless designs weaved into the cloth with diverging meanings.
