AIKO
Fall 2012 Collection

Photographer: Socrates M Medina
Model: Leslie De La Torre

The beautiful landscapes and utterly kind people of Ghana inspired me to create this collection. Using batik textiles I bought during my stay in Ghana and combining them with textiles from home; I wanted to show how different places and cultures can open one's mind and expand creativity by learning and interacting with them. Each piece in this collection is inspired by different places and people I met through my one month travel there. I cannot thank Ghana and it's people enough, it is because of them that I learned that one can be happy without having a lot.
