It's a Takeover Part 2: Siata's Style

Munje Foh

Hello Everyone!  Thank you for checking out part two of Siata's style:

Style is something that I've always possessed, even from a young age.  Maybe it was the effect of my fabulous aunties whom I looked up to while growing up in Sierra Leone, or the pride my parents took in making sure I looked presentable as a young child.  Either way, I find that style comes instinctively to me.

I Dream of Independence...

Munje Foh

Although the weather is still dreadful, lately I've been dreaming of spring and the African events that come along with it; Ankara Balls, Independence Dances and Celebrations, oh my!  I've been brainstorming outfit ideas for the Green White and Blue Commission's Sierra Leone Independence Ball and I definitely want a look that's fashion-forward and African-made.  In my search for the continent's best creations  I found so many things that I've got a running list.  So I wanted to share a few of the designers and shops that caught my eye:

Duaba Serwa is a Ghanian fashion brand that I can't stop stalking.  With intricate beadwork, shape sculpting silhouettes and modern designs this line has a little of everything that an African girl loves.   Shop  Duaba's ready-made designs  or contact them by phone at 011233262101656 or info@duabaserwa.com for special requests.

Taibo Bacar of Mozambique is quickly becoming one of my fashion favorites.  His dresses don't come cheap but the final product is nothing short of luxury.  Well placed lace, detailed floral beadwork and elegant sheer panels are some of Mr. Bacar's hallmarks and right now I want to say yes to every single dress!  I believe that his line only does custom work and they can be reached at sales.clientservice@taibobacar.com or whatsapp: 00258827029196.

Table for 6 African Fashion Merchandizing Event featuring Madame Wokie, WINTERIZED!

Munje Foh

My super smart and connected cousin Sudie invited me to an event focusing on African Fashion Merchandizing, where industry experts would be on-hand to discuss fashion design, manufacturing and compliance. Since the winter has been frigid this year, I "winterized" this short summer frock by adding knee boots, tights and a cropped coat.
