Our core style belief is that 'Elegant Simplicity' correlates to 'High Fashion Luxury'. In my culture, we believe that there is power in every name so "Lamtoro Yelibana" is a phrase used to honor those with the last name, 'Sallah'.
Our core style belief is that 'Elegant Simplicity' correlates to 'High Fashion Luxury'. In my culture, we believe that there is power in every name so "Lamtoro Yelibana" is a phrase used to honor those with the last name, 'Sallah'. My mother, Aji Ida Sallah, was a well known seamstress and fashion designer in my homeland, The Gambia. Throughout my childhood, I was fortunate to watch her create gorgeous designs for friends, family and clients. The array of colorful fabric textures and colors sparked my imagination early on so I began the ambitious push to create my own line. My mother has since transitioned so I felt compelled and called to honor her legacy so 'Yeli Bana' is the sequel to her story. As a young working professional, I struggled to find business clothing that reflected my personal style. The search for favorable fashion would result in a spectrum of basic work attire to exaggerated prints or styles that lacked professionalism. Yeli Bana will provide chic, modern designs with a touch of African prints and fabrics for young business professionals and entrepreneurs. Each piece from this line will tell a story of individuality while honoring the sacredness of tradition. Research shows that Millennials strive to maintain a positive work/life balance so I've taken this into account with each design by creating transitional pieces that go from the boardroom to a fun night out on the town. Simply Stated: Let's create your story. Respectfully, Ms. Adam Sallah Founder & CEO
