It’s my  birthday and NY fashion week  so I’m asking my  friends to  share the love! .  Tenneh is not only talented she aims to use her skill to help those in her native Liberia. I love her new collection but to get it in time for the holiday we need to ensure she (and other indie designers) have  the funding…

She emulated her mother through crayon illustrations of lavishly ornamented dresses. Her mother and socialite Aunt Rubitha inspired the name “House of Rubi”. Tenneh’s ultimate goals are to travel around the world, capture creativity and utilize her fashion brand to share her discoveries with everyone!
