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.

Gaultier Furniture

Jean Paul Gaultier has long been established as one of the top clothing designers, but now he'll be dressing a different sort of body. Teaming up with luxury French furniture brand Roche Bobois, Gaultier will be presenting furniture pieces that are linked closely to his clothing designs, with all the extravagance and allure we have come to expect from him. As of now, Gaultier has furnished an apartment in Paris' architecture museum, but be sure to keep an eye out because during the next couple of months his pieces will be popping up everywhere.
