“Christie Brown is a Ghanaian based luxury women’s fashion brand that aims is to satisfy the stylish urge of “that modern woman who seeks a true taste of Africa”.
At Christie Brown, our aim is to infuse modernism into carefully selected traditional African aesthetic that transcends international borders. It’s really about allowing women to experience the culturally rich and opulent side of Africa without having to compromise their personal contemporary style.
The label was founded in March 2008 with the launch of the brand’s first run way show in Accra. Creative Director, Aisha Obuobi began her love affair with fashion at an early age. However, the real motivation came from watching her grandmother Christie Brown, a seamstress, create rich and vibrant garments. Today, Christie Brown stands uniquely as a women’s apparel and accessories manufacturer and retailer with pieces ranging from beautiful bespoke gowns, practical yet statement pieces to innovative accessories all inspired by the African culture and art. Her clothes and accessories have made a bold statement, painting the runways with a fuse of color and culture, fit for the contemporary African woman.” (Text and images via http://www.christiebrownonline.com)
