Media love volume 4...

Mister Giles, the man behind some very cool art will be exhibiting at The First Lady Christmas Fayre and has given the event some love on his blog.  Please check out his pieces on his website and come and purchase a piece or two at the event!

Watch us grow

It really feels like Kenema & Co is growing up!  Part of that growth is that we are getting a website!  My home girl Danielle, CEO of DAT TAG recommended a really cool web designer to create our website.  He got on it immediately and I am already impressed!  Watch this space!

I want to say a quick thank you to Danielle as she has been very supportive and I must say that I have been really impressed by her business ethics.  Actually I am really in awe of all the people I have connected with on my Kenema journey they have been positive, insightful, warm, genuine and just lovely well rounded people.

Anyway the website is being created by Matteo Scaglione of Best you've never had.  If you need a website designed contact him here.

The "Zia" collection coming soon

Hey all just dropping you a line to let you know that on Friday 15th October all planes lead to Sierra Leone for the creation of Kenema & Co's second collection, The "Zia" collection.  Zia is a person who is very close to the heart of Kenema & Co and has been a huge inspiration/ motivation for the brand.  Zia means splendour and light.  With this collection we hope to bring some splendid light to a dull winter wardrobe.

We also aim to challenge the perception that African fabrics are for the warmer months/ climates.  Within this collection there will be party pieces, street wear AND some pieces for men (you asked so we are supplying it) and some pieces for the little people!  Stay tuned for preview pics and information!

In addition to this the money we have raised to sponsor two girls thorough a year of secondary school will be delivered!  I think I am as excited about this as I am the new collection.

Media love volume 3...

I give The Cool Crew Blog 10/10 for their support of the UK creative movement.  They shine positive light on all things creatively positive in the UK.  Kenema & Co certainly appreciate the support!  Here is some coverage on our forthcoming event.

Media love volume 2...

My darlings @Fly Prints have given our next event (The First Lady 28/11/10) some coverage check it out and check them out.  I love these dudes as they are very supportive, positive, forward thinking and great screen printers!  If you have any print jobs please check them out!

Some media love...

This morning I stumbled across a little media love from The Nublack website.  Read the post here.  Do take the time to read I am The Nublack's website.  Thank you Gabi
