Style lounge has been a great platform for designers to grow their brands. The three-day event which is in its third year was created by Debonair Afrik to promote fashion brands in Africa, especially West Africa, through workshops and fashion presentations.
The third day of this year’s event featured a three-part fashion presentation consisting of seven emerging designers including Ekua Addo, Kai Shika, Sena Bryte and four established designers including Nuna Couture and Diva Delicious amongst others.
The first show featured seven ingenious emerging designers, the first being Sena Bryte, who showcased his “AKWAABA” (Welcome) Collection inspired by the Ghanaian culture and tradition. The masculine collection had a blend of Polka Dots with touches of Kente and Denim.
The next showcase was by Edzordzinam Agrosah with the brand name, Miss Evys Clothing. Her Collection was titled “PECHE ET CHIC and LEMONADE” The Collection was mainly jumpsuit with very bright colours. PECHE ET CHIC and LEMONADE by Miss Evys Clothing was inspired by her utmost love for Jumpsuits.
Anthony Owusu, the Creative Director of “HOUSE OF OATH” had his collection which looked archaic and yet very fashionable deliberately designed to intrude the youth to our old style of fashion.
The brand name “AKUA ADDO”, was inspired by the pre- Columbian artefact of the Taino tribe. This is as a result of the designers mixed cultural background with roots in both Jamaica and Ghana. Samara Akua Addo is the creative director of the “AFRO- LATINA” Collection. The ‘AFRO-LATINA’ Collection had its predominant colour to be yellow with very proud native designs.
‘KAI SHIKA’ with her Collection “VIEWS”, her inspiration is from her obsession with how things look from above. Her designs were full of life with the earthly colours green, white and brown.
