Hey! I am Ms. K and I am living in Brooklyn, NY. I grew up in Germany with a German mum and a Ghanaian dad. African cloth and prints were always part of our home and my life.

Most of the clothes that were sown, were worn when I returned to Ghana or on holiday. Whenever I moved, they went with me. Even though I have not worn many of the pieces in a long time, as the designs are a little outdated,
I am still holding on to them.
So now, after all these years of exposure to African cloth and print, I am astounded when I see African cloth popping-up in mainstream stores like H&M and on runways and magazines and hear designers talking about African prints in fashion. With this blog I want to explore the imprint of the African Diaspora on fashion and showcase African and Africa-inspired designers, designs, trends, stories and opinions.
