N’kya Designs Debuts its ‘OBAA’ Collection

| October 26, 2012

Following the successful launch of the ‘Dawn’ collection, N’kya Designs has recently released its newest collection, ‘OBAA’. ‘OBAA,’ which in Twi means ‘WOMAN’ was unveiled during Glitz Africa Fashion Week which took place in Accra on the August 17 – 19, 2012.

The collection comes in a color scheme of blue, green, ivory and orange, and draws inspiration from society’s strong women and how their roles have evolved overtime to cause changes in how women are portrayed. According to the designer of N’kya Designs, Sheila Boateng, “the colors signify strength amongst other qualities such as Blue Loyalty, Wisdom, Trust; Green-Health, Youth; Orange- Warmth, Enthusiasm; and Ivory-Purity, Peace.”

“The collection also has snippets of the everyday woman and how hard they work to keep their homes together…from housewives to street-side hawkers to market traders to corporate workers. A woman’s strength is what gets her through and that’s what being an N’kya OBAA is all about – strength and confidence.”

Each piece from this collection has splashes of the aptly named ‘Akyekyedi3-Akye’ wax print cloth used in its construction. The name of this wax print translates to ‘A tortoise’s back’ which is well known for its Strength…


Sheila Boateng believes this collection will appeal to women that are all about the N’kya S’s…Sassiness, Sexiness and Style!
