Afrodesiac Worldwide integrates contemporary design against cultural references and a kaleidoscope of modern luxurious African fabrics. Each collection is developed to illustrate the beauty of cultural exchange through fashion, a combination of sophistication and heritage. Fusing retro design with non traditional African prints has become our design signature.
We celebrate the cosmopolitan side of Africa, its influence on style throughout the globe and its contribution to our cultural past, present and future.
From our signature infinity dresses and halters, handmade with fabrics from throughout the continent, to our vibrant jumpsuits and hand pounded brass jewelry made with pre-colonial coins from Ghana. Our African roots run deep in our design aesthetic.
At the same time, we celebrate Afro style in the diaspora that extends to the streets of London, New York, Trinidad, Brazil and Paris. Redefining the landscape we intend to integrate fashion with the larger global community
