A WORD WITH

Erica Ofori-Adomako

Designer and Founder of Black Buttons

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A FASHION DESIGNER?

My love for the West African wax print fabric, rediscovered on a visit to Ghana in 2011. To think that this print fabric has been around me all my life, it was used to carry me on my gran’s back as a baby but my eyes only opened up to its true beauty when I was older. The beauty of the prints reinforced my love for art and as a result, I decided to make a few items for myself.  Coming back home to South Africa, everyone loved my outfits and wanted to know where I got them from.  With so much interest, I saw an opportunity to share my love for art and fashion.
