Fashion Mist UK 2011: N’Kya Designs

N’Kya Designs keeps the Ankara prints relevant at Fashion Mist UK 2011.

“N’kya is a womenswear label established in 2007 by London based designer Sheila Boateng. Our collections include a range of dresses and separates that reflect the fusion of two very different cultures to create an explosion of unique style and colour. Based in London but deep rooted in Ghana, Western Africa, N’kya prides itself on being able to create pieces that are unanticipated and exciting.

N’kya’s signature is the use of African fabrics exhibited throughout the collection in the forms of dresses, tops, skirts etc and is mostly mixed with a variety of fabrics such as chiffon and satin. In order to do our part in the fair trade movement all garments are made in Ghana by highly skilled seamstresses who upon instruction produce pieces that brighten our days and light up our evenings. This generates a stable source of income for the team and as a direct result N’kya Designs is able to give back to the community from which she originates. Everything that has the N’kya label exudes not just quality but Sassiness, Sexiness and Style!”
