The new capsule collection by Autumn Adeigbo’s ethical fashion line employs the use of colorful West African printed fabrics and traditional African beading techniques to give silhouettes that are chic and fashion-forward.
In August 2014, New York- based Celebrity stylist and social entrepreneur Autumn Adeigbo traveled to Cape Coast, Ghana and put together a team of 8 talented female artisans for her new line. The line provides the ladies with the necessary training required to have a sustainable profession as well as an income which allows them to to live better lives and make positive life choices.
Of the new collection, Adeigbo states in a blog post, ‘My entire family is Nigerian and I saw from an early age how magical the African aesthetic is. I wanted to create ‘that’ line of high quality Always African clothing in chic, modern, and cool silhouettes. We take it a step further by sourcing and producing on the African continent- feeding back to the very people who inspire the brand- my people. Our people.’
