D@AC? is it a noun? a verb? a formula?

Let me put you out of your misery………………. it is a Nigerian Watch brand owned by two lovely ladies, Busola Akomolede and Bola Anibaba.

D@AC stands for ‘DAT Akomolede Chic’, I came across this article on Hilltop247 and fell in love with the watches.

They got a full range of Male and Femal watches here.

My favourite is called Metro Woman, I prefer it in the Chrono Blue version, which is one of the 8 colours available, why don’t you check them out here.


I’m really impressed by what the present crop of young people are doing in the various industries, these watches are Swiss made and go at pocket friendly prices in comparison to their counterparts of the same quality.

Just though I’d share.

What’s your taste in Watches?

I have been searching for inspiration for my jewellery, so started looking into all things African……I know coral is the bead of choice but I’m a fan for clear cut stones, cabochons and gems. So I realised I would have to look for inspiration else where.

Africans just looove colour, it is seen in their outfits, headties and fabrics, so one of the point to note was colour. I decided to go on YouTube to look at African fashion shows and trends and ended up watching all of Chris Aire’s shows and collections. I loved the Chris Aire Hollywood Glamour Collection Spring 2011, one necklace in particular that caught my eye; it is a multi strand necklace with an amazing mesh of colour and guess what? they were clear stones. Look out for it at 3.27 0f the video (oooo I love me some Chris Aire) ……….

……..then it struck me, Why don’t I design jewellery with colour schemes that match the ever versatile Ankara Fabric. Genious!

Each ankara design is just so versertile, colourful and unique, it would be quite a challenging task but that’s exactly what I’m looking for.

While searching for ankara designs, I found out that there’s a company in Middlesex called Middlesex Textiles who make the prints and would deliver the fabrics to me in the UK, yay!!!!

I’ll just have to decide whether I’m going to purchase these fabrics first, so they can be made into outfits for the photo shoot of each pieces or shall I just randomly create from the styles and designs I come across?

hmmmmn, well here are a few samples I fell in love with, I’ll come up with a few designs and update you in a bit.
