Tunde Akinola

Emak’s Couture has been playing in the fashion home industry for over half a decade where it began by building its reputation as a freelance design affiliate to a host of forerunners in the sector. In the face of the very huge and/or overwhelming demand from the fashion consumer market, Emak’s had to reposition itself as an independent outfit since it was imperative that the largely patronized forerunners sought the expertise of specialized hands to handle delicate areas of clothing design and development. This way the couture industry has continued to grow & expand steadily, while upcoming fashion brands such as Emak’s have continued to assert themselves competitively as good brands and significant players.

WENDY WRIGHT GYIMAH - The Ghanaian lady behind Ama Glow tells of how she got lost in the beautiful world of clothings and designs "Ama Glow is actually a hobby that got out of hand and became a fashion brand she says.'when i was a child i already had passion for the fashion industry. Growing up in Netherlands, i noticed that African designers were in a minority but then i noticed that my aunties and mom wore traditional African clothes. it was those many colors and symbols that inspired me to make beautiful ,refreshing designs of those dynamic fabrics' she concluded.

 Ama Glow clothing is an Amsterdam based Ghanian clothing brand made with African fabrics translated into modern and trendy,clothes for the modern woman who knows what they want world wide and for those who dare to be different.Ama Glow signature is the African wax print material and this appears in every collection..
