SEphA Designs is a newcomer in the Ghanaian fashion industry that uses African textiles to showcase the beauty and diversity of the African culture in clothing and footwear.

 

Started in February 2010 by Sefakor Gbewonyo, the brand is gradually beginning to expand its product line to include some accessories. The latest additions to their line include the Bernice Herman collection, which is a collection of lightweight scarves in different colourful prints and patterns, and the Lace collection that consists of men’s shorts in African prints.

Though they stock a couple of shops in Accra, most of their business transactions are largely done online. Their presence on the web however, is gaining them good popularity across borders.

 

The business specially works both current and timeless fashion trends into the products they make with an added exclusivity from hand-picked African textiles. Take their afro corks and shoes for example, an obvious highlight on some of the season’s trendy footwear is flats for females and loafers for males. But the prints add interest and edge to the otherwise ordinary footwear.

 

Simply fabulous footwear!

SEphA Designs has demonstrated an impressive socially-minded attitude which is consistent with their involvement with several charities. After a little over a year in operation, Sepha has supported various charities including the Little Big Souls Foundation,  March of Dimes, the National Autism Awareness (Love Your World 5000) and the Wild Giving Attitude.

 

Just as the Gbewonyo says, “It’s just the beginning for this growing brand. There’s a lot more to look forward to!”
