African Prints: Endless Fashion Possibilities

first_imgRecent years in Monrovia have seen a growing and very diversified preference for the use of African prints. This has now become the latest fashion trend in every part of Monrovia.It is obvious that more and more African designers have emerged in Liberia, taking their works more seriously, thus attracting Western customers to the African style trends as they take on mainstream fashion in and around Liberia.Indeed there is a wellspring of passion and drive towards the rebranding of African attire by a powerfully positioned generation of youth.  Some do it as a hobby, others do it for business. Hawa Conneh is trying to make a business of hers.  She taught herself everything she knows about fashion design, from hand sewing to the making of African necklaces. And for Hawa, it’s not just about being creative but also a form of empowerment.  “Once you’re a hard working lady, you’ll become recognized in the society and people will respect you because of your hard work, your effort and time you put into making whatever it is that you’re doing a success,” she says. What gives this young designer the satisfaction is the fact that she can transform an already made product into a total different new look, and turn an idea into a beautiful creation like her signature necklace made of African cloth. Promoting her African culture has always been her dream as can be seen in many of her designs.Born on Sept. 7, 1986 in Gbarnga Bong County Hawa is a graduate of the Cuttington University with a BSc in Sociology. According to Hawa, she always knew she had a creative side to her; remembering how she created her first skirt from and shorts that was too tight for her which her mom had gotten her.“I remember in my early teens I really wasn’t comfortable wearing tight shorts and my mom had gotten me a pair of tight pants that I wasn’t comfortable with. So because I had the color of the cloth, I told myself I was going to cut it up and turn it into a mini skirt and when I got done with it, I couldn’t believe my very own self. It had turn out quiet lovely” she proudly said.What makes Hawa’s work unique is the dedication and patience she puts into her works. She explains that it takes a whole day to make up to three pairs of shoes going through a tedious process of having to take the entire pair of shoes apart and giving it a whole new make over in African style. Because of her busy schedule as an insurance professional, Hawa is left with no option but to use her Saturdays and Sundays to work on her designs.Driven by her passion and desire to succeed, Hawa dreams of owning an African factory in the future. She tells LIB Life that she sees her self as a factory owner in the future producing anything African related where she would be able to cater to more clients all around the world. So far, her only international clients are those in America plus her local clients. Meanwhile her work is mainly advertised by word of mouth and on her facebook page.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The Globe and Mail: Chevron Corp. touting B.C.’s LNG tax

first_imgWith files from The Globe and Mail When Chevron was a partner with Apache, they formerly targeted the start of production for 2015, but industry experts now say the earliest time they could launch an LNG export is 2020.Throughout the ongoing uncertainty of proposed LNG projects, British energy firm BG Group PLC said last week that its original target for a final investment decision of its Prince Rupert LNG project, slated for 2016, will now be delayed.Industry analysts say BG Group will likely wait until the fall of 2017 before making their final decision.Read the entire Globe and Mail article here.Advertisement “I think that what we are satisfied with is that the British Columbia government is very attentive to the realities of the industry,” President of Chevron, Jeff Shellebarger told the Globe and Mail.Chevron’s third-quarter profit, reported on Friday, rose 13 per cent to $5.59 billion U.S.There are so far 18 proposed LNG projects slated for B.C., however, industry analysts predict only four at most will be fully developed, with the Chevron-led Kitimat venture ranking among the top proposals.- Advertisement -Shellebarger has also gone on record to say the company is confident of the shale gas pay in the Liard and Horn River basin, quoted as saying, “We think that the low-cost, potentially prolific reserves up in the Liard and Horn River are going to make an attractive LNG project in time.”Shellebarger also recently announced the company’s not going to make a final investment decision until they secure at least 60 per cent of their LNG production from northwestern B.C. to Asian customers, which Scotia Capital predicts will take until the fall of 2015.Chevron was originally signed to a 50/50 partnership with Apache Corp. in regard to the Kitimat LNG project, but Apache announced in July that they’re exiting the joint venture.Advertisementlast_img read more

Pique jeers rain on Spain’s World Cup party

first_img0Shares0000Spain’s defender Gerard Pique kicks the ball during the World Cup 2018 qualifier football match Spain vs Albania at the Jose Rico Perez stadium in Alicante on October 6, 2017 © AFP / JOSE JORDANALICANTE, Spain, Oct 6 – In the midst of Catalonia’s drive for independence, Gerard Pique was again centre of attention as he was met with a mixture of jeers and applause in Spain’s politicised World Cup qualifier against Albania on Friday.Pique made his 92nd appearance at international level just days after voting in a referendum on Catalan independence deemed illegal by the Spanish government and marred by a police crackdown that left hundreds needing medical attention. However, the Barcelona defender has been received in similar fashion for over two years when representing La Roja for his outspoken jibes at Real Madrid even before his political stance took centre stage this week.Along with captain Sergio Ramos and Barca teammate Andres Iniesta, Pique has called for politicians on both sides of the political divide to negotiate in order to avoid the shocking scenes of violence that reverberated around the world last weekend.However, he angered many by continuing to criticise the heavy-handed policing after joining up with the Spain squad this week on social media.“In Las Rozas (Spain’s training ground) you no longer wear the Barca shirt, but that of the national team, of the country you belong to and you retweet things against that country,” said Nacho Ortiz, 23, draped in a Spanish flag and who admitted he would jeer Pique.“It is a painful subject,” said Ortiz’s friend Adrian Pena.Pique has campaigned for Catalonia’s right to self-determination but has never publicly backed independence for the wealthy northeastern region of Spain.“My personal opinion is that Pique hasn’t said he is in favour of independence. He has asked for dialogue, that there is a binding referendum,” said Sofia Duperiel, an Alicante native who came to watch the game with her six-year-old son.Spain could book their place in next year’s World Cup with a win should Italy drop points at home to Macedonia.“For sure it spoils the party,” added Duperiel. “It is a shame to mix politics and sport.”Pique is just one of a number of Catalans who have played a huge part in Spain’s most successful ever era at international level as La Roja won the 2010 World Cup and 2008 and 2012 European Championships.And most fans can’t envisage what the Spanish national team or La Liga, one of Europe’s top divisions, would look like without Catalan players or teams.“It would be incredible, I cannot imagine it,” continued Duperiel.On the field, Spain seemed to suffer little from a week of upheaval off the pitch as they raced into a 3-0 lead much to the delight of the crowd as they responded with chants of “I am Spanish” and “Viva Espana” (long live Spain).0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Man City boss Pellegrini: Aguero is not a cheat

first_img1 Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has claimed Sergio Aguero did not dive in the Blues’ 3-0 win against Southampton, adding the 26-year-old did not try to “cheat” the referee.The Argentine appeared to be fouled by Jose Fonte in the first half, however referee Mike Jones opted to book the striker for diving rather than awarding the visitors a penalty.In his defence for the in-form front man, Pellegrini said: “I didn’t want to say it was a penalty [during the game] but when I saw it after, it was a clear penalty.“What I am absolutely sure about is that Sergio never dived and he never tried to cheat the referee.“He fell down in that way because it was an important kick [from Fonte].”The Chilean also defended the performance of central defender Eliaquim Mangala, after the 23-year-old was sent off for a clumsy tackle on Shane Long in the second half, with City leading the match 1-0.“It was the correct decision; it was a yellow card [and a sending off]. I don’t know if the first one was a yellow card but it doesn’t matter because in this case [the red card] was the correct decision.“He played very well today. If he doesn’t make the foul then maybe it’s a goal for Southampton.”The victory saw the defending champions climb up to second place, just six points behind league leaders Chelsea, but the manager insisted his side are simply focussed on improving their current form and not the title race.He added: “We are not sending a message to anyone. We are just trying to play in the way that we know and I am sure if we return to our normal performance we will return to the solid team we were last year.” Sergio Aguero in action for Manchester City last_img read more

Blame ME! Watford boss Flores says he is responsible for poor form

first_img Quique Sanchez Flores Quique Sanchez Flores has taken full responsibility for Watford’s miserable run of form in the Premier League.While the Hornets can look forward to an FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace later this month following an historic victory at Arsenal, they have won on just two occasions in 12 league matches since the turn of the year.Watford, who have slipped to 14th in the table, host Everton at Vicarage Road on Saturday off the back of four straight league defeats.“The responsibility is the coach,” said Flores, the Spaniard managing in English football for the first time this season. “I need to transmit what the focus and target is.“At the moment the players don’t respond in the way that I like because I am not able to transmit the necessary ambition to play the matches in the Premier League. So, I prefer to assume the responsibility. I have to support these players.“We have a couple of distractions. The first one is that we got 37 points a long time ago. We have the feeling that everything is done in the league, but this is not a good thought because we need to compete and we need to add more points.“And the other distraction is the FA Cup. In the club, we talk a lot about the FA Cup. It is our fault, we need to change the mentality and we have told the players that. We need to recuperate the focus as quickly as possible.”Watford are just one win away from the magical 40-point mark which will all but secure their status in the top flight for second successive campaign.But Flores, who has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the visit of Everton, believes his side should be targeting more than just safety in the final seven matches of the Premier League.He added: “We have the responsibility to be ambitious, it is not about the points. Thirty-seven points could be enough, or it could be not enough.“We haven’t lost the level on the training ground, they are training well, so, I don’t know what happened in the last matches against Stoke and Arsenal where we lost the focus. I promise the fans that they are going to fight, and the players are focused on the task.”Watford’s biggest problem in the second half of the season has been the lack of goals. Only bottom-of-the-table Aston Villa (22) have scored fewer times than their haul of 30.Odion Ighalo scored 13 goals before the New Year, but has just one strike to his name in 2016, while Troy Deeney has netted just two times this year.Flores added: “In this moment I am not going to put pressure on Ighalo and Deeney. The responsibility is on the second line.“We have players in midfield, on the wing, second strikers, who need to add goals to the squad. They know that perfectly and they know for me at the moment that it is not enough.” 1last_img read more
