Who We Are
WHAT IS YOUR ACCENT? is a platform designed to connect consumers to culture, fashion, and artisans in the African Diaspora. Our mission is to bring the talent and stories of African artisans and designers to the global market. We design, produce, and curate limited edition, statement pieces, locally sourced and made by Africans for the culturally conscious consumer. For us, it is important to know where our clothes come from and who makes them.
