New Designer On The Block: Abenaa Pokuaa For Ohema Ohene



Written By: Staff Writer—Ohema Ohene is a new British London based boutique fashion brand created by British born designer Abenaa Pokuaa. The name meaning "Queen & King" in the Ghanaian language of Twi is a play on Abenaa's Ghanaian heritage and her love for all things royal and fabulous. After successfully completing a degree in ‘Fashion design technology surface Textiles’ at London College of fashion; Abenaa worked in fashion where she gained practical insights and insider know-how about the industry. Armed with a keen sense of style and solid experience, Abenaa lauched Ohema Ohene, a stylish line which is representative of London’s multicultural population, blending quintessentially British with West African textiles. The rich prints, many of which are designed by Abenaa herself, are directly sourced from Ghana using authentic traditional motifs blended with more contemporary imagery.
