Meet our Belle of the Week, Delali Haligah!
Osun Designs, which creates one of kind Art-to-wear that draws heavily on the Afrikan experience, (both inAfrika and in the Diaspora.)
The designs are a combination of contemporary style with a distinctly Ancient flavour. This fusion of hand painted, indigenous graphic images, striking fabrics, and Osun’s signatory “simple yet elegant” shaping—makes each creation feast for the eyes!!!!!
Delali Haligah was born of Jamaican parentage in London. She spent her formative years in New York, returning to the lush island of Jamaica for her summers. Later in life, she lived and/or worked as a Designer in several countries including Ghana, Portugal, Nigeria, England, Kenya, France and Tanzania.
Delali is an actor, singer and accomplished dancer who has performed on Broadway, in television, and in movies. She is a former member of the Screen Actors Guild (S.A.G) and the Actor’s Equity Association (A.E.A). She it is her exposure to different experiences, along with the Blessing of her talents, which makes her style appeal to several types of people.
