Exclusive Interview with Rita Jalloh

Rita Jalloh
Sierra Leonean fashion designer, Rita Jalloh has given us an exclusive interview on her  work, her experiences, and goals. Thanks to Rita Jalloh! 

 How did your career started and how have you grown over the years? 

My career started  as a girl who used to create outfits for herself, babies and dolls using pieces from old outfits or newspapers. I was very private with friends about my talent.   I have grown to be proud and comfortable with my work.  I'm not afraid to try new stuffs.  I'm not worried about criticism or even making mistakes. I'm in my own creative world if I should say. I see myself going a long way because my talent is unlimited and it speaks for itself and people love what I do because I'm different. It's a blessing to have support not only from family but also from people I don't know personally.

Why were you private with your work at first? 

Creating/designing means a lots to me. It is not just a hobby or business. Whenever I'm working on a project, I go into a different state of mind or place not everyone will understand. I go into a calm and peaceful place.    I was worried that if I didn't keep my work private, it would've ruin that moment and I wanted to take my time before going out, since I'm self thought.  

What are your plans for the future?
Currently, I have a clothing line called ThamaniAfrique.  I am debating the ideal of opening a store. 

Note: All the designs Rita is wearing in these photos were designed by her.   


  1. Amazing designs, great response Rita Jalloh. You are indeed a great talent. Your sense of fashion is classy and unique. It's good to position yourself and your brand as a whole different as opposed to others out there. Wishing you all the best in all your endeavours.

  2. That is my girl. So talented. You will soar to higher heights. The sky is not ur limit, but a stepping stone. God bless u dear!! Proud of u

What President Trump and Kim Jong Un Ate

The historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continued midday Tuesday, as the leaders satisfied their appetites while holding negotiations with a contingent of advisers over a working lunch. The lunch, which followed a 45-minute one-on-one meeting between the leaders earlier in the morning and bilateral discussion with senior aides, was held at the Capella Hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. It was far from an intimate affair, with each leader accompanied by a bevy of senior staff, according to the White House. Joining Trump were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor John Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Deputy Assistant to the President for Asian Affairs Matthew Pottinger. Kim was accompanied by Kim Yong Chol , the former spy chief and one of North Korea’s chief negotiators, as well as Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, former

Snapchat Slammed for Domestic Violence Meme Featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown

If Kylie Jenner ‘s stock-plummeting Snapchat rant didn’t make you delete the app, maybe this will. Over the weekend, Snapchat found itself in hot water after a now-deleted domestic violence meme featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown went viral. The meme, which was an advertisement for the app “Would You Rather,” asked users whether they would prefer to “slap Rihanna” or “punch Chris Brown.” Almost immediately, screenshots of the ad appeared on Twitter, with many criticizing Snapchat for making light of domestic violence. Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf? Like what were they thinking with this? — Royce Mann (@TheRoyceMann) March 12, 2018 Many considered the ad a mockery of Rihanna’s experience with domestic violence. In 2009, Brown was arrested and charged for physically assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna hours before she was to perform at the Grammy awards. Since the incident, Rihanna has spo
