Assa  founder of Ciaafrique.com
I would like to start by welcoming you on my blog. My name is Assa, many of you know me as Ciaa. I was born and raised in Mali (bko) until the age of 17 when I came the USA to study. Although I hold a bachelor in HR my heart is into Fashion. I currently live in Toronto Canada and I have 2 beautiful sons that I adore. While I was on maternity leave with plenty of time in my hands to search the net, I have tried several times to find information on African designers but with not much luck. That's when I thought that maybe I could have a blog where I could feature the work of the talents and skills of Africa. I was also inspired by blogs like yaye Marie ba, ladybrille, and Bella naija to name a few.

I absolutely love your website! I haven't seen any updates since mid-August. I hope that everything is all right with you. I had become accustomed to seeing new entries every several days. Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your efforts to keep us up-to-date with the best and the latest of African and African-inspired design and fashion. All the best and blessings to you and your family!

My last comment disappeared (and it was so good - guess I couldn't read the two words). Just wanted to say how much I appreciate what you do with Ciaafrique. I haven't seen any updates since mid-August so I hope that all is well with you and your family. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and musings about African and African-inspired fashion.
