City Chic Dress

I’ve bought two things at MansaWear–a bicycle skirt which I bought off the rack, and a dress which I had custom made for me. Both garments are absolutely beautiful! I get compliments whenever I wear the bicycle skirt, and the dress fits me beautifully and is exactly what I was looking for. I can’t recommend MansaWear enough!

V-neckline Wrap Dress

I absolutely love my dress from MansaWear! Not only is it stylish and one of a kind, but it also fits me perfectly! I have scoliosis and am quite petite so shopping for clothes is usually pretty stressful. Working with Nita was fun and completely stress-free. I cannot wait to wear my dress!

Thank you Nita for taking time to show us the beautiful Kente cloths when we were shopping for a graduation stole. We especially appreciate your attentiveness and enthusiasm in explaining the process and meaning behind the designs as we made this important purchase. The shop is so beautiful and welcoming too!

Tote Bag

One of my new favorite stores in Rochester! The store owner Nita is a lovely person, and the other worker Gloria is also very friendly! The clothing fabrics come from Ghana, and are tailored to your measurements. There are also beautiful shoes, bags, and jewelry made in store or by local artists. I recently purchased a gorgeous skirt which had bold green and pink hues. Nita altered the skirt to my size and gave me a free tote bag with some cloth from Ghana! I will most definitely return!

When you #shoplocal, sometimes you just happen to run into the designer and creator of the skirt you’re wearing at your son’s school. (P.S. Nita Brown’s clothes are gorgeous, unique, and comfortable. Check out MansaWear, Custom-made Clothing & Accessories on Park Ave!)

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.

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!

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!

Beaded Clutch

Black and white beaded clutch by MansaWear is elegant and fun. These basic colors can be “worked” with most outfits, it’s roomy enough to fit all your necessary “must haves”. I’m having lots of fun with it.

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.”

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!

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.
