HOUSE OF AAMA
This mother-daughter duo leverages family ties to create striking pieces. Daughter Akua Shabaka, a graduate of the New School’s Parsons School of Design, in Manhattan, is pursuing her fashion dreams through collaboration with her business partner and mother, lawyer Rebecca Henry. As cofounders of House of Aama, the two design garments with nostalgic references inspired by history, sustainability and storytelling.
