Sneak Peek of Christie Brown 2011 collection: “An Afromantic Daydream”

So excited to introduce the new collection of one my fave African designers Ghanaian label Christie Brown by  Aisha Obuobi. 

Here are few words from the label  about their inspiration behind this collection 

 "This collection is demure, sophisticated chic; we're celebrating the ultra soft, flirty and feminine. We've drawn inspiration from the era of ‘Mad Men’ and the Hollywood sirens of the 40s and 50s and focused on elegant, delicate silhouettes with playful ruffles and pleats to create intriguing layers of eye-catching texture in lux materials such as chantilly lace, raw silks, and silk-chiffons. We've primarily used a palette of subtle, nudes, beiges, creams, and soft greys and contrasted these with three types of African print material to give each piece a distinctly modern, Christie Brown twist. "

 Below are also a few pictures of their signature accessories.
