Our First Three Months Vol 3: Official Launch Party

Wow. Time flies by so fast! We can't believe it’s already been 6 months since we launched Afro.ditie Creative!!! It’s been an incredible experience so far! We had our Official Launch Party back in April and we thought we’d celebrate our half-a-year milestone by making a video of highlights from the party and recapping the night! (Find the video below, we hope you enjoy it!) Good vibes and great people made for a truly memorable night! The party went down in Gastown at the Basement by Loyal Coalition’s underground shop (235 Cambie Street). They're the best spot in Vancity to shop original all-local-Vancouver-brands (Psst...

Our First Three Months Vol 2: Let's Go, Fashion Show!

Creative. Diverse. Inspiring. Educational. Fun.

Day 1 – Designer Panel: Speaking on the designer panel was exciting because we got to interact with the audience and learn about other local brands. It was fun to answer questions and share the vision for...

More Than a Clothing Label "Brand"

For our first blog post, we thought it would be fitting (pardon the pun) to highlight the importance of identity. As humans, we have an innate desire to know our origin, and being in touch with one’s cultural identity is important. DNA tests and the likes are popular, as people are on a quest to find their roots. When we are not in touch with our heritage it is easy to feel lost and confused. We believe that being in touch with one’s identity is essential in shaping how we live and interact with others. This brand has been a...
