Adha Zelma chosen as one of three designers for Thistle & Clover

Sheanan and I are sooo very excited. We have been selected as 1 of 3 new designers for Thistle & Clover located in Fort Green Brooklyn.

The owners, Rand Niederhoffer and Camilla Gale are so committed to carrying independent designers, that they have open auditions for new talent four times a year. Thistle & Clover stocks beautiful, feminine pieces that can transition from business wear to evening cocktail fashions. A perfect match for Adha Zelma.

Look for us in the store mid September!

Africa Is In Style

I recently picked this book up. I was immediately drawn to the title because I have always felt Africa is in vogue. There was something about the cover that really turned me on. Sheanan and I love to take our inspiration from traditional adornment concepts and I thought this coffee table book would be perfect inspiration. I must say I was a bit let down. The content is brief and doesn't quite focus on the continent as a whole. Heavy focus is placed primarily on West Africa. Although the work doesn't stand up to my expectations, I do congratulate the goal of cataloguing the ways that African designers are shaping a new aesthetic for the fashion world.
