We love getting a dose of culture and Island flare during Ghana Fashion & Design Week where the catwalks of Accra, Ghana rocked with the latest from the country’s notable designers. Here are three that we instantly fell in love with!

Tuedor and Wright

 

West Africa and Japan provide sources of dreamy inspiration for this design house. Fantastic colours mixed with vibrant prints adds heritage to this haute collection. Tuedor and Wright edges up their line with sultry and modern silhouettes adding a dash more of the cosmopolitan allure to the overall tropical sensibility.

Emefa Cole Jewellery

 

This just stopped us in our tracks. Direct from the UK, this London-based jeweller/sculpture/artiste is someone we definitely noticed. Designer Emefa Cole trained at Sir John Cass School of Art and Design in London where she eventually had her collection of rings exhibited at Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths Craftsmanship and Design Awards Exhibition. That of course,  led to invitations to exhibit at other notable places but we sure are glad that she presented her collection at this year’s Ghana Fashion & Design Week. The unrivalled essence of art which clearly exudes from one piece to the next,brings an undeniable sense of gravitas to the overall aura of the one who decides to don such illustrious pieces of beauty.

AJEPOMMA DESIGN GALLERY

We featured her before as part of our Global Designer Spotlight series, simply because this designer is just too much fun not to notice. This time, she brings a fabulous array of colours and splash to the catwalks of Accra, Ghana. We love the textiles, the metallic fabrics used throughout and the eye-popping, can’t-miss-if-you-tried colour combinations. It’s  almost as if the 80s art gallery-chic dweller direct fro Soho New York decided to make their new home in The Islands.
