The craftsmanship of african designers can now be compared to their counterpart in the western world from the embellished to the tailoring. Most designers use the highest quality Ankara mixed with other fabrics like chiffon, silk and cotton and linen .
Below are some of my favourite african designers. I would like to collaborate with this designers because each of their pieces suit different persona , love the mixture of colours and they embrace their culture to tell a beuatiful fashion story.
Tiffany Amber is an international award-winning label – an accolade that was received by designer Folake Folarin-Coker who was awarded Designer of the Year 2009/2010 at the Arise Africa fashion week in South Africa.
Jewel by Lisa designs are quirky yet stylish and funky for those that like to stand out in the crowd. I admire the mixture of colours in Jewel by lisa’s collection.
Lanre Da Silva designs are bold with an edgy twist. There is no doubt she is one of the best in her field.
