This new collection is eclectic. My fabrics are a mixture of western and have a touch of AFRICA. My colors are bold and bright, blue, gold, black, white and purple.

Celebrated as an innovative, sophisticated and edgy women’’s wear line for the modern woman, Studio D-Maxsi’’s unique designs are for the sexy, classy, funky, chic and confident woman. Born to a family of six, remarkably self-taught Afua draws her creative artistic inspiration from her rich Ghanaian culture. “Over the years, Afua’’s sense of strength and purpose has grown tremendously allowing her to broaden her horizons and use her experience to create an empire; a legacy that her children could inherit. Her vision and focus led to Studio D-MAXSI”. Hard work, determination, and self-sacrifice kept Afua motivated and needless to say, eventually landed Studio D’Maxsi as the lead designer at the forthcoming AFWNY 2012.
