About L~Shandi (http://lshandi.com/)
L~Shandi was created form the Nigerian street slang expression “Lepa Shandi”.  Lepa Shandi is a common term for women whose clothing, outfit, or ensemble has a flattering and sexy fit. L~Shandi designs was created in 2005 by Lara Akinsanya, a Nigerian-born American, who was inspired to provide ready-to-wear garments that are made with fabrics from Africa appealing to women from all nationalities. What makes the L~Shandi designs different is the innovative use of the traditional African fabrics with Western cuts to provide a unique, sophisticated and timeless glamorous look.
