Ocacia Haute Couture Range

In redesigning the classic dashiki of the 60's we had one addition design consideration, to transform it from a casual top to a formal one, while retaining all that gave it its identity. We asked ourselves what was necessary to make it a premium occasion top, and went about adding everything we know to be premium, starting with high end West African zigzag embroidery, formal cuffs (long sleeve option only), back yoke, and a welt.

  1. Very happy Review by Louis Shabazz

    Very happy to have accidently stumbled on this Ocacia site. I took a chance and my first purchase will not be my last. The shirt looks even better in real life and it is hard to picture that because it looks exceptional in the photos. I almost feel bad for paying $100 for something that is probably worth at least $250 (Posted on 10/12/2016)

  2. So good I had no choice Review by Adam Hussain

    My family is from India, this is not even my culture but it look so good I said let me be different and wear something African. Now here in London all the Nigerians are looking at my top in Absolute AWE, they all ask "Where did you get that from?", It seems I know something they do not. (Posted on 10/11/2016)

  3. Blown Away Review by Zinnie Springson

    Oh my oh my, I thought the photo on the site was too good to be true. But mine arrived 5 days ago and I have not even put it on yet and writing this review. It is art. Inside is this different kind of brown fabric which looks so premium. I got the full house--the cuffs, the pocket --everything. I mean you spending the money you might as well go full house. I am keeping this one for special occasions I want it to last. (Posted on 7/23/2016)

  4. STUNNING with a Capital S Review by Sean Dilanni

    Stop what you doing and just buy this 101. I bought the original one and said this is the best African shirt I have ever seen. Then came this one and I said, no they cannot beat the 101. But then when I put it on I cannot believe how nice it is. It is the color combinations and the attention to detail. This is real top quality sewing and they clearly know what they are doing. I am happy I paid the extra and got pocket and cuff (esp the cuff) because I wear it to professional engagements and everyone is giving me WOW -- I like your shirt. (Posted on 5/31/2016)

  5. that khufu is nice.. Review by jaronn

    Badass dashiki..gotta have it !! (Posted on 5/21/2016)

  6. Beautiful Color Combination Review by Brandy

    I bought this along with some clothes for myself, but as a gift for some one whose birthday is coming up. Out of the package, it is quite sublime. The color combination is unique and would suit a wide range of African skin tones. I have no doubt that it will be appreciated and l can't wait to see on. (Posted on 5/4/2016)

  7. I am very happy Review by Kingdom of Yah

    I bought the RBG as my first Ocacia and I said They cannot beat this ever. Well I was wrong. This one is hands down my fav. And it is not fair to say it is better. I just find this one is more for sophisticated occasions, while the RBG Dashiki is more stunning that stands out. This is my favorite and I am happy i got this one and not the black one. I could not decide but I see this one is the best one for me. (Posted on 3/12/2016)

A Tailored fit

1 Check your shoulders-- you do not want the shirt draping beyond that bone at the edge of your shoulder.
2. Check your sleeve, at most the cuff should terminate 2" beyond that bone on your wrist(that is the max) the minimum should be to that bone with your elbow bent
3. The arms should not be baggie, the body should not be baggy showing excess fabric. 
4. The cut length should cover your zip
5. Ideally a Chinese collar should fit snug around your neck. It should not open up.

To get a better fit, let us know your shoulder to shoulder, your chest, your preferred length , your sleeve length (per our site).

How to measure

To choose the correct size for you, measure your body as follows:

1. Chest
Measure around the fullest part, place the tape close under the arms and make sure the tape is flat across the back. It is best to add 1-2 inches to get a loose fit. It is safer a little loose than too tight. Most of our clothes come with 20mm seams for adjusting.
