This series is a long time coming, and definitely something that needs to be seen; African women have a very singular narrative in society. Nicole Amarteifio, the series creator, successfully manages to show us a more complex and glamorous side to Ghanaian women that is rarely seen. She was inspired by watching old Sex and the City reruns. The show is set in Accra, Ghana. It’s about five women who return home after years of living abroad, they are trying to traverse love, relationships and career while also trying to readjust to their almost unrecognizable hometown. You can find this groundbreaking series on Youtube, Amarteifio didn’t shop her show around to larger networks because she wanted to keep complete creative control over the project. The clothes featured were loaned to the cast by local Ghanaian designers. Be sure to check it out and be inspired!
