African wrap dresses
I am starting my collection with dresses made from African wax prints. I have collected these fabrics in my travels to Ghana over the past 6 years. Starting very small, I aim to design a collection of ethically made garments, made either here in the USA, or overseas in Africa. The line will be small and sustainable with fair wages being paid to the workers involved in the process.
I made these myself and will travel to Ghana again in February 2013 to investigate women's sewing cooperatives.
Thanks for looking!
