Ghanaian designer Renee Q. Boateng made a splash in Washington last year with her collection of bespoke t-shirts at Fashion Fights Poverty Fashion Show. Her ReneeQ bespoke tee shirts are embellished with rich Ghanaian batik print fabrics and beading. They are dressy alternatives to the boring tee.
The ReneeQ bespoke collection has expanded into accessories and jewelry. The designer's latest is a line of colorful belts. The ReneeQ Intuma Belts come in colorful Ghanaian batik prints and are embellished with jewels. Intuma means clothe in Twi, which is the official language spoken in Ghana. The beautifully handcrafted belts are tres chic with oversized roses and thin rosette belts. Add a splash of color to your little black or white dress with these Intuma Belts. Tres chic n'est-ce pas?
