The African Dreams collection was inspired by the Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong'o who won the Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actress in 2014 and faced the world without altering her skin or extending her short African hair. She was her authentic African self. The collection celebrates the beautiful Africa that we all dream of where everything works and all humans are equipped to reach their full potential. It also celebrates our deep Africanness of dreaming big and conquering the world in any discipline we apply ourselves to. We used ankara, adire (tie and die), Kente and Aso oke and then embellished the pieces to modernize and bring it up to date.
