Our simple aim is to put the love back into clothing again. We want to give you a shopping experience that excites you, make you feel good and provide you with unique pieces which you will treasure from season to season.
What influences our collections?
Here at Grass-fields, our biggest inspiration is our love for self-expression through clothing. This inspiration manifests itself in the form of vivid, eye-catching and contemporary designs that can be worn either casually, for a night out or for formal events. We felt there was a gap in the market for amazing, well-made clothes inspired by our African heritage that really last and this project is all about us embracing our opportunity to do something different.
What really sets us apart?
We understand women shop more by their personality than age and this has led us to focus our attention on the construction and fit of our pieces. Our aim is to flatter you and help you to look the best you can be and our collections are a representation of that aim. We spend lot of time sourcing the best fabrics from Cameroon, Nigeria and Benin, making sure they truly fit our vision of creating unique pieces. We are conscious of using a real variation in our materials and we take a lot of care in making the garments as lovely on the inside as they are externally. We want to create inclusive and original fashion that really speaks to women without compromising on quality. Each piece is designed and crafted with love, and we think it shows in our clothes. This is not about fast fashion, it's about pieces to truly treasure.
