Ohema Ohene’s mission is to bring to the world total Royal splendour! Pushing the boundaries of African inspired fashion and paying homage to the beauty of Africa. A taste of colours, influences, prints and concepts which are prestigious to Africa, a beautiful and often misrepresented continent.

Ohema Ohene’s long term vision is to produce the majority if not the entirety of its products in Ghana and its neighbouring community, helping to build a long term source of trade to its people.
