Nigerian designer opens store

A customer admires one of Debora Kehinde’s designs.

Nigerian designer, Deborah Kehinde is the go to person for original quality African prints in Guyana. Dara, as she’s commonly called, has since launched two collections dubbed ‘Fumilayo’ (meaning Give me Joy) and Odunayo (Year of Joy) and recently made accessing her pieces  easier with the opening of her Rhoda Doxa Store.

Dara, who grew up in the African country, said Nigeria is all about African print day-in day-out. ‘Ankara’ (fabric), as African prints are referred to in her country, is never only for special occasions but is worn on a daily basis back home. In fact, when she was born, she was swaddled in Ankara. Growing up in a shop where her mother is a designer, she grew to love at an early age the making of designer pieces.

Her pieces are tailored to suit any occasion; be it for that professional work look, elegant occasions and even the simple hang out informal pieces. What makes her African prints go quickly is the pocket friendly prices for her pieces made from authentic imported African material…..
