AjePomaa Design Gallery is a contemporary women’s apparel brand that is fast becoming a favourite in Ghanaian fashion. The brand comprises a variety of intricate designs with a youthful flair and a vibrant mix of colours, patterns and prints. Popularly known for its trendiness and playful edge, this brand has a priority to become the major brand of choice for an easily accessible RTW line that caters to regular, everyday women of all body types.

Ajepomaa Mensah is the Designer and Creative Director behind the AjePomaa brand. Upon gaining her undergraduate and associate degrees from the LaSalle College of Arts in Singapore, her already blossomed passion for fashion led her to New York after college. While there, she worked with a number of fashion brands in order to gain some industry experience and develop her fashion prowess. She has worked with big fashion brands such as Searle, Anik and Montmartre all in New York.

Having gained an astute understanding of the workings of the industry and having polished up her skills from all her job experiences, she moved back to Ghana for further study at the Vogue Style School of Fashion and Design after which she set up her own brand in February of 2010.
