WeWe - pronounced weh-weh, meaning little ones in Yoruba, the language and culture of one of the three main tribes in Nigeria, West Africa - makes chic and unusual maxis from fabric and trim imported directly from Nigeria.
Designed by Folake (Kuye) Huntoon, a Beverly Hills-based Nigerian who has also moonlighted as a fashion editor and celeb stylist, the dresses are Folake's way of translating her connection and passion for all thing Yoruba, from the food to the music to the clothing, into fashion.
In addition, they are an active supporter of Jenny's Light, a non-profit that raises awareness about post-partum depression.
