Ohema Ohene...African inspired fashion with a British twist


Ohema Ohene is a British boutique fashion brand, specializing in African inspired fashion. Created in 2008 by British born designer Abenaa Pokuaa. Based in London, the name meaning Queen & King in the Ghanaian language of Twi was in reference of her Ghanaian heritage and plans to create a brand for both Men and Women.

After successfully completing a degree in Fashion design technology surface Textiles at London College of fashion; Abenaa then went on to work in the industry developing her technical and commercial understanding.On returning from the Far East where she worked as a designer and from a short trip to Ghana, Abenaa finalized the concept of the brand. Ohema Ohene produces exciting, high quality stylish seasonal African fashion for Men and Women, which is representative of London’s multicultural population. Ohema Ohene blends quintessentially British styling with West African textiles.

Many of the rich prints are directly sourced from Ghana, using authentic traditional motifs blended with more contemporary imagery. Abenaa also designs many of the prints herself as well as using Dutch Wax prints from Holland. The brand gives the wearer a sense of glamour and clever design. Great quality products which are fashion forward, wearable and culturally influenced.
I just love the African inspired shoes and i think we seriously need to see more of this in our Kenyan market plus the prints are just gorgeous! Ohema never dissapoints :)
