Suakoko who? One look at these authentic West African wax and resist-dye printed dresses and separates and you’ll never forget the name of this unique fashion line. The company’s name, "suakoko," (pronounced SWAH-ko-ko) means place of new beginnings in Gio, a West African dialect, and is also the name of a renowned Liberian female warrior-chief. Drawing from this inspiration, it’s no wonder that Liberian designer Charlene Bendu Dunbar has managed to create bold, trend-setting designs for women during her last 20 years in Atlanta, GA.

The brightly colored tie-dye fabrics are hand-dyed in Liberia and hand-made in the USA in limited quantities to ensure that each garment is unique. The colors are indeed vibrant, bursting with shades of orange, purple and blue to name a few. Add to this the carefully crafted dresses and separates that accentuate womanly curves (sizes range from small to extra-large), and you’re left with clothes that any woman would want to strut down the streets of Philadelphia. Like its name, Suakoko’s clothes are sure to make a statement.
