She did that.  Precious Lakis, CEO of Precious Pieces Couture came through for us, on July 26, 2018.  As a 26 gift to her fans, celebrating the 171st Independence Day of Liberia, her native land, the Liberian designer offer us a pure package of Love, Strength and Unity. In the photos below, she expressed what the ideal Liberian man is all about. Check out the inspiration behind these photos, in her own words: 

Happy independence day mama Liberia 🇱🇷.
During the early years, Liberia was filled with sunshine. Women look up to men and men treated women like precious jewel. No one was better than the other. You see, our beauties could be seen from miles away. We were treated like queens. Real royal queens. Love and respect was the key that unlocks the door to our hearts. How did we loose it all. Liberians are strong ,smart and knowledgeable people. We elected the first female president and went on to elect a soccer player who is now the messiah of Liberia. Come on queens let’s support these kings cause we were made from their rib cage and we have to stay close. Kings stop abusing queens . We need to start putting love into action and rekindle our relationship for a better tomorrow.
Yes we can, God bless our nation and all Liberians. Happy 26🇱🇷.
Precious Pieces.

Open Letter to President George Weah

C Liberia Clearly CEO calls on George Weah to take Arts and Culture seriously.
The Honorable George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, I write to endorse your "Pro Poor" agenda. I fully

support your call "to ensured Liberians are not spectators in the

Liberian Economy."    In

order to carry out this "Pro Poor" agenda successfully,

and in order to fully empower the young generation, the Liberian Entertainment Industry must be included. 

Arts and Culture has played a critical role in keeping our young citizens gainfully employed.  From the music industry to film industry to the fashion industry, this generation has benefitted from the employment opportunities arts and culture provides.
