The social enterprise creating joyful fashion moments
Studio One Eighty Nine is a true brand of the future
We love Studio One Eighty Nine, a fashion and lifestyle brand with a true commitment to both sustainability and social enterprise. Co-founded by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah and made and produced in Accra, Ghana, the brand works with artisanal communities specialising in traditional craftsmanship and techniques. The brand also supports a variety of community-led projects in both Africa and the US. The aesthetic is one of joyful prints, bold shapes and pieces with both a sense of heritage and a fashion-forward design sensibility. This skirt – $625, studiooneeightynine.com – is one of our favourites, but there are so many to choose from. All beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces imbued with a sense of purpose and joy. Fashion the future in motion.
