Ghanaian luxury womenswear brand Christie Brown presented her latest collection titled F(MEN)IST on the first day at the 5th edition of Glitz Africa Fashion Week (GAFW).
The strictly by invitation presentation took place off site at the Level 8 Lounge, Airport Square in Accra. The presentation started with recitation of famous quotes from powerful feminists like Maya Angelou and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in a dim-lighted room which guests standing around with curious faces on what was about to be revealed. After about 20minutes of this, they were allowed to view the pieces specially curated on wooden-like mannequins.
According to the designer’s brief, the collection F(MEN)IST has “the very powerful juxtaposing of modern day feminism and the nagging traditional stereotypes of the suggested role of women in our society. The big idea: We highlight the trending push back against present day societal norms imposed on women who so fiercely want to show their powerful nature in a male dominated world.”
Guests included Ghollywood Actress Jackie Appiah, Fashion & Stylist Afua Rida and many of the elite fashion lovers of in Accra.
