Sai Sankoh who fled Sierra Leone with her family in the midst of a civil war, eventually relocated outside Washington, D.C. She was working as a nurse when she started writing about fashion on the side. A few press outlets caught on to her bold style, and her blog, now titled LuxuryCheckout, took off. Sai’s love for color caused her to launch her  eponymous line of resort-wear, featuring billowy caftans and two-piece sets, takes inspiration from the vibrant hues of her native Sierra Leone.

according to Sai

“I love really bright colors,”

she says,

“because my country is green, white, and blue.”

Sankoh travels to India to ensure each piece matches her vision, from the fabric to the dyeing to the printing. But she plans to design evening gowns and a fur-focused line later this year, which she will produce elsewhere. Her goal is for the resort-wear to land in 20 stores, including local spots Elements and Tootsies, by year’s end.

And while she is building a beautiful life in Dallas, Sankoh has not forgotten her native land. “I would also like to open up a factory in my country,” she says, “to help get people jobs back in Sierra Leone.”


So what are you waiting for, Virtual Insanuty is coming through, make sure you get ready.
