Woman’s History Month–Paying Homage to MomNita
To celebrate Women’s History Month, I’m paying homage to my mother, whose gorgeous outfits and sophisticated styles imbue and infuse the design platform of MansaWear. Here’s to my mother, Comfort, and grandmother, Nana Mansa, MansaWear’s namesake. I not only learned my sense of style from them, but also owe common sense attitude and business acumen to grandma Mansa. Her skirt and tops are based on the classic Ghanaian “Kaba ne Slit,” which forms the base of MansaWear design platform. As the story of these pictures tell, I’m still wearing several of the actual outfits that my mother (and grandmother) wore 50 plus years ago, honoring them every month of the year. The outfits haven’t been altered for fit or style and yes, they do attest to the quality and timelessness of #mansawear’s fabrics. #mansawearstyle #PayingHomage #WomansHistoryMonth #CurrentMood #heirloom.
