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.

Turkish Vogue

Tired of magazine subheadings that compare celebrity sex lives and gossip? Bored of the same celebrities being featured on every magazine lining the racks. I mean, you get enough of them starring in every Hollywood movie already, right? Vogue's Turkish edition, which came out this week, featured a cover free of Hollywood celebrities and all of the distracting subheadings. It's clean, professional, yet stylish. Much like Hemma.

What do you think about this magazine cover layout in America, would it survive?
