Meet Ruby Buah, speaker at Truelife Campus Conference 2017!
Ruby Buah (@theafricanruby) is the visionary and creative director behind Kua Designs(@kuadesigns), a company she named after her mother and the acronym KUA represents Keeping Us Authentic.
Kua is an internationally recognized Ghanaian fashion house with a focus on African-inspired jewelry, handbags, children's clothing and accessories.
In 2009, Ruby took a bold step by moving from spread sheets and financial statements to metals and fabrics. In short, Ruby went from Finance to Fashion.
It all started a few years earlier when she worked as a Financial Analyst at Coca Cola in Atlanta, Georgia. Ruby, seeking a creative outlet started exploring different forms of art in her spare time.
What started as a hobby in jewelry-making quickly became a profitable business. Three years into running her part time jewelry business, she moved to New York and earned a degree in Jewelry Design at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology. To no surprise, she built on her jewelry line by adding an equally exciting handbag line. In 2015, after a few years of running her chic boutique in Ghana, she expanded further by adding a children's line. By October 2017, Kua will add a kids salon with services to include manicures, pedicures, hair grooming and styling for kids.
Whether it is sourcing or fabrics from the Makola market or offering employment and training to her employees in Labadi, she loves that she is spreading independence and sustainability and Keeping Us Authentic.
