Seven Days of Andinet is well underway and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon! Keeping up the positive vibes, we’re celebrating yet another talented woman in our community!
She goes by the name of Esther, but most people simply know her as Ohemaa! In this short interview, Black Livity China gets to know all about her journey, her interests and why she’s joined Andinet Directory™, China’s Directory for all things Black!
Why did you start your brand?
OHEMAA’S WORLD started in March 2017 out of my passion for fashion and innate creativity for designing simple but sophisticated and elegant clothing and accessories. Inspired by my Ghanaian Heritage and traditions I have a vision of projecting these values through Fashion.
What one thing would you like people to know about your business?
I taught myself how to sew and bring my designs to life a few months after launching my brand…I hand sewed the first two accessories I started with and invested in a sewing machine couple of months later…I was so excited that I spent the night learning how to use the sewing machine when it arrived…It’s being a learning process and it still is.
Celebrate yourself – Tell us a bit about your achievements since starting your brand?
Being given the privilege by my clients to create elegant outfits for them every day is in itself a great achievement. I always do a little happy dance when I get clients’ feedback and pictures. I’m thankful for each and every client that owns an Ohemaa’s World piece! That piece was made with so much LOVE!
What’s next for you/your brand?
To expand in terms of brand reach. I aim to be a household name when it comes to African Inspired Fashion. Aside from creating Custom/Bespoke pieces, in future, I would want to have a Ready-To-Wear line where clients get to purchase the same pieces made with love anywhere they might be in the world.
If you weren’t from the country you are from, where else in the continent or African diaspora would you come from and why?
If I had my way I would have a piece of every African country in my DNA because of the uniqueness and diversity in culture.
With Andinet meaning unity, What has been the best example of Unity in your community that you’ve seen in China?
I will use BlackEXPO as an example as I’ve been part thrice and counting. BlackEXPO brings together the black community including its businesses, talents and services under one roof to celebrate the unity in diversity. The love and support are impeccable!
