House of Afrika was founded by Maria Hornsby-Odoi; struggling to find clothing on the high street that suited her shape she started to customise her clothing made by tailors in her motherland of Ghana. When she wore her uniquely designed pieces back in the UK, she constantly got comments, compliments and enquiries as to where these items could be purchased. After making a capsule collection which quickly sold out, she took her cue and started house of Afrika! The collection consists of contemporary styles, timeless tailored pieces, afro-euro fusion and afro-bohemian designs. Included in House of Afrika will be handmade ethnic jewellery and eventually interior and fashion accessories.
