YEVU is a brand that was inspired by, and developed in Ghana in 2013. The idea was to celebrate and harness the beauty of West African wax prints and the craftsmanship of Ghanaian tailors and seamstresses, to create unique and fun apparel that fit the lifestyle of my friends in Summer in Sydney. 
Each piece is unique. The fabrics were hand picked from the markets of Accra, Kumasi, Togo and Cote d’Ivoire. Each garment has been constructed by hand in Accra in collaboration with local businesses. Its an ethically produced range which attempts to connect the buyer with the marketplace of West Africa.

Vlisco ‘Celebrate’
'The season of glamour and giving is here. It’s time to dress up, gather with your loved ones, exchange gifts – and celebrate! Treat yourself to a sophisticated festive look by wearing Vlisco, the only true original, this season and show that you care by buying your friends and family the only authentic Dutch Wax.
This season we pay tribute to the art of the drawing, and to our textile designers, without whom none of our patterns would be possible. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Sanne van Winden, textile designer at Vlisco, for her stunning hand-drawn illustrations, which have added imagination to our campaign photography.’

Q: As an African American, is it considered offensive if I wear kente print cloth? I've started to fall in love with the prints and designs recently, and it lead me to start learning the meaning and culture behind it, but I feel as though it would offend true Ghanaians if I wear it
