Great and exciting things are happening for the sophisticated DC based women’s fashion design house - STUDIO D’MAXSI. A new collection launch, award nominations and major fashion show features are in the works. Afua Sam of STUDIO D’MAXSI has been confirmed to showcase her one of a kind ‘Red and Gold’ collection at the upcoming 9th Annual Maryland Fashion Week 2013, Maryland’s Premier Fashion Showcase where she is in fact not a stranger. “Lights, Camera, Fashion” - Sophistication the Next Level will be this year’s event theme.
STUDIO D’MAXSI ’s ‘Red and Gold’ collection which showcased at ‘Fashion Adventure 2’ with Team International last April in Paris is said to be inspired by Ghanaian born owner – Afua Sam’s travel to Ghana, London and Paris.
Afua Sam says “It is always exciting when fashion week season is here, even though I have featured several times. The preparation towards the show is always exhilarating but when the day comes and I see my handiwork on the runway and the reaction of the audience; that makes it all worth it. I hope everyone will have as much fun as I had creating this collection that I am totally proud of”.
In addition, also newsworthy is the announcement of STUDIO D’MAXSI as a top finalist for the ‘Fashion Designer of the Year’ award at the upcoming 2nd Annual African Awards USA taking place in Atlanta, Georgia. Afua Sam is proud to represent Ghana and in view of her humble beginnings, she is honored to be an inspiration.
This year has been full of Awards, nominations and honoree mentions for STUDIO D’MAXSI . Her designs recently caught the attention of high profile Government administrators in the U.S.A. which led to them reaching out to her fashion house and subsequently being adorned at the historic second term inauguration of President Barack Obama. STUDIO D’MAXSI was also recently nominated twice in a row for Fashion Awards MD in the category of HIGH FASHION. She was honored at the recently held Trendy Africa’s 3rd Annual Mothers Appreciation event-TAMMAE in Dallas where her works captivated the audience.
