WASHINGTON, DC (February 2015) – STUDIO D’MAXSI announces the launch of her SS15 line the ‘Royal Collection’ which retails exclusively online at http://www.studiodmaxsi.com.

Fashion Designer – Afua Sam Owner of Studio D’Maxsi

Owner of STUDIO D’MAXSI, Afua Sam, award winning fashion designer says of the collection:

“The name of this collection came about last year when there was so many things happening personally that I felt like I won’t be able to design or do what I love anymore. I had the opportunity to have some alone time and one thing was consistent – how being a woman is important. I observed my mom’s strength and how she handles every obstacle or adversity that comes her way. It dawned on me how special women are, we are all ROYALS and that’s how the collection was inspired. I think as women, we need to be more aware of our strength, endurance and dignity”.

The ‘Royal Collection’ features fashion wear with a variety of looks and fabulous unique styling that STUDIO D’MAXSI is known for. They will be available in all sizes, at affordable prices on the website, made to order only.

Studio D’Maxsi was currently recognized and is up for votes for the ‘Fashion Designer of the Year’ by RepYoGrind Awards to give recognition to entrepreneurs who love what they do, have a strong brand and help the future generation achieve their dreams. You can vote for Studio D’Maxsi here . Voting ends March 10, 2015.

HAABRE, THE LAST GENERATION- “Hââbré is the same word for writing/scarification” in Kô language from Burkina faso. Scarification is the practice of performing a superficial incision in the human skin. This practice is disappearing due to the pressure of religious and state authorities, urban practices and the introduction of clothing in tribes.” © Joana Choumali.
