They are women using their individual God given gifts in service to impact their communities. They are you, she is you! Women boldly living in purpose. Much like African fabric which is bold and filled with bright colors and patterns. Each African print tells a different story of particular significance and represents different cultures.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

The meaning behind the name! “Yaa” is a nod to founder of Yaa Chic Stephanie Akuorkor (Second Born Twin girl) sisters, Yaa Obenewa (Thursday Born Girl) and twin sister Mary-Anne Akweley (First Born Twin Girl) ! YAA represents all three of their Ghanaian names. Chic is defined as elegantly and stylishly fashionable, which represents the design and aesthetic of the clothing brand.

Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy your Yaa Chic items! 

Stephanie, XOXO
