On Saturday, June 22, 2019, Liberian fashion reached international press coverage when renowned accessory designer, Wilhelmina Cooper, was featured in an episode of CNN’s African Voices. The episode highlighted the designer and her works over the years with Myeonway’s Designs, the Monrovia African Pop-Up Shop, and more recently, Jewels by Myeonway. In her interview, Cooper stated that her goal is to have women feeling good about themselves, while kicking ass and looking badass in accessories made in Liberia.

Following suit to her ‘Made in Liberia’ model, the designer was adorned in all clothing and accessories made and sold in Liberia. Did the rest of Liberians around the world also follow the trend set by Cooper?
