MEET OUR LATEST FASHION CRUSH./

EYIWAA AGYEKUMHENE IS THE FOUNDER OF GHANAIAN FASHION BRAND 'KAYADUA', WHOSE EYE-CATCHING BAGS + STATEMENT NECKPIECES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN CAPTURING THE ATTENTION OF THE FASHION WORLD./

IT'S A LABOUR OF LOVE FOR EYIWAA, WHO CREATED THE BRAND IN 2018, AFTER GRADUATING FROM KWAME NKRUMAH UNIVERSITY OF GHANA JUST A YEAR BEFORE./ THE BRAND TAKES A SLOW FASHION APPROACH, WITH KAYADUA PIECES OFTEN BEING MADE BY HAND + TAKING ANYWHERE FROM ONE DAY TO ENTIRE WEEKS OF PRODUCTION TIME./

BUT THE BRAND IS ABOUT MUCH MORE THAN INTRICATELY-CRAFTED PIECES./ EYIWAA WANTS TO USE THE BRAND AS A FORCE FOR CHANGE, HONOURING THE LEGACY OF THE ELDERS IN GHANA, WHILE ALSO INSPIRING YOUNGER GENERATIONS TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES CREATIVELY./ "I SEEK TO ENCOURAGE CONFIDENCE, WHILST TELLING STORIES THROUGH THE PIECES WE MAKE," SHE SAYS, UNDERLINING HER DESIRE FOR THE PIECES THEMSELVES TO BECOME STORYTELLERS./

BASED IN ACCRA, THE CAPITAL OF GHANA, WE ASKED EYIWAA TO SHARE ONE OF HER FAVOURITE PLACES IN + AROUND THE CITY...

KYENKU FALLS

"Currently my favourite place aside my home is Kyenku Falls...It's a feeling. It will be difficult to put into words. I will say it gives me a calm + an escape. It's not a well known location so I can literally have the whole place to myself when I'm there. Most times I get into the water + enjoy the calm it gives; sometimes I just sit + watch the waterfall."
