Accra Art Centre Shirtdress, Makola Green Wax
Is it a long shirt? Is it a shirtdress? Is it a midi-dress? Who are we to decide? It's totally up to you! However you choose to wear it, the Accra Art Centre shirtdress cinches in at the waist to be maximally flattering with a wide attached belt - comfortable AND chic for a business meeting, brunch with friends or being in the flow of that new art project. And of course, our standard giant pockets to hold your phone, wallet and keys.
We found this vibrant green Dutch Wax fabric in Makola Market in Accra, Ghana and designed this dress sitting in front of the beautiful Accra Art Centre.

Our model Raji Rajagopalan (aka RajiRaj) is an Engineering Director at Microsoft of a VERY exciting upcoming product that's being developed in both Seattle, Washington and in Lagos, Nigeria. On top of being a director by day, she's a public speaker and a writer by night, and a leader all the time. She mentors hundreds of people on how they can best unlock their potential and be heard--especially if they're more of a quiet, humble type. Her best career advice is this: "Be bold, be of value, be heard. Be bold with your visions for yourself and your teams. Raise your hands for projects you may not have the skills for but are of value to your humans. Don't shy away from getting your voice heard where it matters."
