Who said Glam can’t be conscious? Lady Gaga and Cindy Lauper were in London to celebrate M.A.C.’s Viva Glam newest lipstick launch. They participated in a discussion panel about HIV, AIDS awareness, safe sex and abstinence. We here at Hemma love to support others involved in fashion with a conscious, as a percentage of Hemma’s profits goes to the middle school we taught at while in Ghana.
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.
