According to March, the collection was inspired by his visit to the motherland. “In designing this collection, I wanted to draw upon my visit to Ghana and so it was important to have the pieces reflect on the past, what we have achieved and tie it all together in a cohesive manner as we prepare for the future.” The 19-piece collection embodies the years of mastered craftsmanship and comprised a mix of ready-to-wear to couture looks for the trendy and outgoing man and today’s chic and stylish woman.
