It is quite impossible to speak about fashion in Africa without mentioning Christie Brown. The internationally recognized brand has been instrumental in giving fashion in Ghana a facelift. When I decided to create a post about exploring Ghanaian culture using their taste in fashion (See original here), both Christie Brown and Charlotte were natural candidates for how they, among other excellent Ghanaian designers, have transformed the meaning of fashion in Ghana.Christie Brown Button bib for Shopping for Fashion in Ghana, Accra, Osu West Africa style photographed by Fashion blogger ArmenylA lot of people can make clothes, but I find that only a few can think deeply about them. When I first met Aisha Ayensu, Creative Director at Christie Brown, I couldn’t stop rambling about how much I loved her work. I could always tell that her garments were not only about beautiful aesthetics—which, quite frankly, is a fair interpretation of what fashion is about—but there was meaning; an appreciation of art.

I have been a fan of her work since she started: When she came up as a breath of fresh air at a time where tradition and modernism where at opposing ends, but more conveniently, at a time where the traditional style had lost its name to being unpopular, mundane and far thinned out of any kind of patriotism or pride. She was not the only one fighting to keep the power of our culture singing through our clothes, but she is one of the few who managed to blend the two worlds seamlessly together in a such a way that we questioned how they could have ever been apart in the first place.
