Modern Wave Smock Skirt
I had such an amazing experience working with Nita, the owner of Mansa Wear. She worked hard to ensure the fit of my bicycle skirt was absolutely perfect. I feel so special wearing the skirt. I can’t wait to order more unique items for my closet! Do your wardrobe a favor and invest in a piece from Mansa Wear. Thanks Nita!
Pleated Bicycle Skirt
I love it. Beautiful, unique clothing that can be customized or purchased off the rack.
Lowan U-Shaped Dress
The dress made for me was everything I wanted. I received several compliments. The service was excellent and speedy.
Angelina Shift Dress
I needed a dress in over two weeks for graduation and they were able to get it done and it was created at a very high standard. I have received many comments on the quality and style of the dress. As a bigger woman, it was nice to have someone there who wanted to make the experience calming and professional. I will be getting other dresses done there very soon.
Square-Neckline Smock Dress
Ms. Lydia wearing your dress and bracelet! Thank you!
MansaWear Lattice Scarf
An absolutely beautiful boutique! I saw a lattice work cape at MansaWear and I asked Nita (the designer & owner) if she could make something similar in a scarf/shawl. We talked about dimensions and what I'd like the scarf to look like- and I am blown away by the finished result. The colorful fabrics and unique designs make all of MansaWear's clothing feel special and I get a sense of joy when wearing this scarf. How can you not be excited to own a piece of beautiful artwork that you can wear? I went back to buy my daughter a purse (her second MansaWear purse!) and as always, Nita was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. As an artist myself, it means a lot to me to be able to talk about the design process and the origin of the gorgeous fabrics that are used to make the clothes and purses. I definitely recommend this shop to everyone!

The outfit looked beautiful on Vega and she loves it. I was hoping Vega and her mother would stop by the store Sunday afternoon but I guess they did not make it? Thank you again for reordering the skirt. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your professionalism. We are big fans of MansaWear!
City Chic Dress
Dear Nita, Here I am at home after being out for a good portion of the day in my new threads. The comments were; “ooo, that’s nice where did you get that?….” “I like that outfit, were there more?” Of course I responded with “its MansaWear, designed especially for me! You’re welcomed to check it out for yourself. I’m sure you wouldn’t be disappointed.”
Hi Nita, Thanks for giving my new clutch to Steve this am – I can just picture him running down Park Ave. in the bitter cold with his MansaWear shopping bag! Thank you too for the Shea Butter – I love it – it smells delicious and my skin is in desperate need. The clutch came out great – I love the mint green trim on it!

I had a wonderful experience in this gorgeous store. Lots to look at and enjoy. I purchased two items and I am so excited to wear and show them off. I intend to go back very soon. Nita was knowledgeable, polite and so much fun. A must when in the Park Ave area of Rochester.
Customer Service, Environment, Other, Quality, Wait Time. All kinds of options presented. very informative with respect to the fabrics, designs. great experience.
This place is absolutely lovely. There are a variation of skirts, blouses, purses, jewelry which are all Ghanaian-influenced and intertwined with American fashion styles. The lady that owns this place goes by the name of Nita Brown and she is a very polite, professional and awesome lady. She will make you feel welcome and is very helpful with her clients. She wants to make sure that you have the items that are to your liking and caters to your needs. I would rate this place 100 stars if I could!

Accra Wave Maxi Dress
Hi Nita! I did get the long dress, wore it out to dinner for our anniversary. We really like it. I will have to put it on and come over to the shop so you can take a picture for Facebook. I am no good at that, have to get with the times. LOL. I am looking forward to getting the short dress. Can’t wait to wear that one, too. I have some fall events where I can wear the short dress.
Nannette Drawstring bag
These are so cute. My daughter has one and it is perfect for going out at night. Nita has lots of fun little gifts in her really neat shop on Park Ave. Great last minute gifts.
