A sense of nostalgic emotion crawls in whenever you catch a glimpse of colorful tie-dye or batik pieces. Two decades ago tie-dye and batik were worn by most Ghanaians and foreigners who easily fall in love with the unique designs.
The trend which went out of vogue is making a resurgence thanks to several designers like Maya Amoah who showcased her latest collection on the Kumasi Fashion Week (KsiFW) runway.
For her KsiFW debut runway event, Maya, the founder of Batik Boutik revealed in an exclusive interview that the collection showcased was inspired by her love for the 70’s fashion, tie-dye, wax print, and Ghanaian culture.
Batik Boutik aims to showcase the incredible talent of African artisans through fashion, accessories, and decor. The sustainable fashion brand boasts a socially responsible line influenced by the bold and vibrant designs made in Ghana and unique to the eclectic culture of West Africa.
Here are some stunning pieces from Batik Boutique’s debut on the Kumasi Fashion Week runway.
