I'm Michelle :) and Citrus Husk is my baby. I'm a 29 year old stereotypical Capricorn (according to all the IG astrology accounts I follow) living in Atlanta, GA. I work full time as a recruiting program specialist for an auto manufacturing company. I am a dog mom to my sweet, anxiety ridden, rescue pup Mila girl! I love love love travel, live concerts (you will catch me at Coachella EVERY year okay?!), and autumn weather...which lasts about two weeks down here in the south.
ATL has been my home since 2014 but I was born in beautiful Nashville, TN to two native Ghanaian parents who came to the US in the 80s. Although I've grown up in the states, my Ghanaian heritage has always been prominent in my life. From the foods we ate to the music my parents would blast on early Sunday mornings, our home was always flowing with rich Ghanaian culture.
The idea of this shop started with the notion of wanting to share this Ghanaian culture with all of you! I've had access to authentic African clothing and accessories all my life. Today, you can easily go find any "African print" item, which is great, but they can lack the rich fabric or small details that only the items straight from the motherland will have. I wanted to make that authenticity available while bringing my own designs to play.
As I began working on the shop, I realized I not only wanted to design African clothing but I wanted to be a marketplace for chic everyday clothes too! So, here we are. A shop that is a perfect reflection of me, both African and American. :)
I hope you love what we have available for you! And if not, tell me what you'd like to see! I may not listen but you should do it anyway.
