Hemma creates fresh, elegant collections using authentic hand-woven Kente, a textile rich in African royal tradition. Kente began to flourish in West Africa in the 17th century and still remains prominent representing social prestige, luxury, and cultural sophistication. Each garment is uniquely handmade from intricately hand-woven Kente imported from Ghana. By incorporating the same techniques used to dress Ghanaian nobility for centuries, Hemma allows each client to exude royalty. By investing in quality pieces that last a lifetime, the lives of Ghanaian school children are also impacted. A percentage of all proceeds will be donated to a West African middle school where the designers instructed classes.

Italian Vogue Launches Vogue Black and Vogue Curvy

Italian Vogue Launches Vogue Black and Vogue Curvy, websites dedicated to Women of Color and Curvy Women. Interesting concepts which reopen the debate concerning differences in the media.

Should there be a separate entity for these two groups or is it better for Vogue to include women of all shapes and background?
