Yes, another lovely surprise was in store for me all thanks to the 'Hamburger Sparkasse' Bank & of course 'AfroSchick'. Our recently launched 'Khanga Zetu' Collection was exhibited for 2 weeks at the bank's branch on Fuhlsbüttler Straße & I finally got a chance to go & see it. I was beyond thrilled to see this and am very greatful for the representation that really matters not just to me as a Black Female Entrepreneur but also as a long term client of this Bank. I apologize for...

Finally, the 'Khanga Zetu' Collection is ready for sale & available exlusively on the newly launched online store 'Afroschick'. This has been an almost 4 year journey for me as an individual but also for 'Oriwo Design' as a brand. I remember the first time I received this 'Kisutu' Fabric as a gift from a dear friend of mine & immediately fell in love with it. I designed & made 2 pieces from it, a skirt that I wore 'here' & the ruffle shirt that Donata of 'Afroschick' wore here....

I remember when we were advised/requested to stay home at the beginning of the Pandemic so as to contain the spread the disease, I promised myself that if the situation ever improved, I would spend all the free time I had outside. So when the opportunity arose, trust me I went all out & took a short trip to 'Marschacht', a charming little area on the shores of the Alster River & had a beautiful day there. I took a walk along the river bank, had something to eat & simply enjoyed the...

Have you ever read a book & felt as if you were watching a film? Yes, that's the feeling that I got when reading 'The Woman in the Window' by A.J. Finn. Am not such a big fan of thriller based books but since I got back to 'Audible', I've been pushing myself to try out new genres & this book did not disappoint me at all. It's full of twists, turns & suspence that one expects from a psychological thriller. Narrated by Anna Fox, a former child psychologist living in a big house in...

Someone recently labeled the current happenings in regards to the protests against Police Brutality & sheer Racism that has been taking place all over the world as a 'Black Lives Matter' moment'. A white Fashion & Lifestyle blogger who I follow & whose content I actually like. She then went ahead & corrected her statement & called it a 'Movement' instead of a 'Moment'. But you know what, the damage was already done because her viewing it as a 'passing thing' is exactly how...

Life can be really funny sometimes, I mean, who had ever thought that in 2020, every single thing in the whole wide world would come to a standstill. Absolutely nothing is like it used to be, many have experienced loss in unimaginable ways, but in a weird way, life still exists & is just going on (same but somehow different). I pray that you & your loved ones are well. Am doing fine, on a life rollercoaster & simply going with the ride, enjoying what I can & screaming out when I...

I was recently invited to a party by a friend (actually a lady that I work for who has since become a friend). I really wanted to wear something handmade & even had an idea in my head of a dress with some African print & fringes to make it fun. It was a house party & there would be some 'Swing & Jazz' music, so I thought that 'Fringe' would make a perfect addition to my outfit because of it's movement & flirt-ability (does that word even make sense)! There's this dress that...

Merry Christmass to you all! I hope that you are doing well doing this festive season, enjoying the break & peace with your loved ones during this special season. Just wanted to share with you this outfit that I wore to the only Christmass party that I attended this year which was held an acquintance's house. I decided to go for a very simple look with this pre-loved black Zara dress that I had thrifted back in summer & spruced it up a bit with one of my favourite neckpieces, a gift...
