custom made clothing and accessories

In 2010, Alseny Soumah founded the Alseny Soumah Fashion line. Stemming from a family of tailors in Guinea, West Africa, Alseny grew to value the traditions of his family and apprenticed his father to learn the art of tailoring.  Carrying his cultural heritage forward, Alseny began to create fashion for the African dance and drum community. The ASF Line features traditional fabrics sourced in Guinea, West Africa and hand sewn by Alseny. Every piece is carefully crafted to honor his culture
