Naana B Spring/summer collection
If you thought Naana B. couldn’t get any more fabulous, it just did! Mixing bold new hardware, zippers, electrifying Ghanaian Kente fabric accents and even bolder patterns and colors, the Naana B. steps daringly into Spring/Summer 2012!
Naana B. is not merely an accessories line, but a brand built on the spirit of a family and history. The designer, who goes by her namesake “Naana B” spent her childhood in Southern Africa and draws on her experiences and travels to such places as Brazil, Switzerland, Paris, Turkey, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Spain, Kenya, Ethiopia, South Africa and Ghana. The designer received her artistic training from Columbia University in New York City. As a steel sculpture and painting major she learned the crafts of design through installation art that incorporated fabric. The museums and art community in New York became a true inspiration. Later going on to moonlight in the fashion industry, the line Naana B. was then conceived. Naana B. creates innovative dresses, jackets and clutches. All fabrics for the line are sourced in Ghana, West Africa. The Naana B. clothing line is made from Sika print, a fabric which comes in hundreds of colorful and vibrant variations. The dresses are a fun and exciting addition to any wardrobe. The Naana B. clutch leather Vixen Collection is made from python snake skin which comes in its natural state.
