After attending UC Berkeley and the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, with $400 and her dreams, Ghanaian-born Plange took off for New York to make those dreams come true! Now after 9 years of working in the industry and paying her dues, Plange is launching her namesake collection!

Plange received her inspiration for her fall/winter line from the textural elements of the
ancient practice of tribal scarification.
