We have always wanted Ashanti Empress to be about more than just colourful clothes. Social responsibility is at the heart of our business and we love how direct the link is between our makers and customers!
This year has thrown a fair few surprises at the world! There is (shock horror) no festivals this year which turned out to be lucky because the trip to produce the new collection in Ghana turned from 2 months into 4! Our original plans of working with renowned Accra photographer @derrick_o_boateng to shoot the new collection had to be postponed because of the lockdown in the city and we had to go full D.I.Y!
