Well, all that sartorial magic has to come from somewhere, right? Leave it to fashion designers to cash in on all this creative goodness and produce something stunning. How blessed we are to live in a world with such creative geniuses. From lifting ideas on paper to producing glamorous designs, here are AuntieOboshie top seven designers from the 2017 GLITZ AFRICA FASHION WEEK which ended yesterday at the plush Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City.
  1. DUABA SERWAA 

The long-awaited come back was worth every second. Ghanaian luxury womenswear brand Duaba Serwaa gave us a fashion night to remember, her collection dubbed “THE KENTE STORY” was super stunning. A true celebration of Ghanaian Fabric with incredible designs. She begun her show with a teaser from her recent collection “Nsubura”  and then gave us the masterpiece. Her trademark cuts, beading, shapes and detailing was present in her “The Kente Story” collection. The looks are trendy, very stylish and it celebrities the stylish Ghanaian Woman.

2. AFRO MOD TRENDS

There is never a day that we are not impressed by this Ghanaian Womenswear Brand AFRO MOD TRENDS. The creative director Ami Yomkepe is a force to reckon with. We believe that this collection won’t in stay on racks for long. Every piece is to die for. Her collection dubbed “Painted Flowers” is very beautiful as the name suggests. The mixture of African print and plain fabrics was just lit. The designs are fit for brides as their second look during the wedding reception.

3. ATTO TETTEH 

We must say that we super proud of this brand. ATTO TETTEH is a contemporary Ghanaian menswear brand that caters for the stylish Ghanaian man. From his “AttoTetteh Army 18” collection to the “THE SON OF GOLD COAST” collection are all well executed and fresh. “THE SON OF GOLD COAST” collection which he showcased yesterday on the runway received so many positive feedback from the crowd and from Ghanaian rapper and entrepreneur Okyeame Kwame and Stylish Media Personality, Arts and Culture expert King Kwesi Kyei Darkwah (KKD). The collection was very colourful and well styled.

4. WEDDINGS BY MAI ATAFO 

One of the most anticipated showcases for 2017 Glitz Africa Fashion Week was designs from MAI.  If you haven’t heard or seen designs from MAI ATAFO then I’m not sure you have plans of getting married. MAI ATAFO is a Nigerian bespoke tailor, king of Tuxedo, and creative director for Weddings by MAI ATAFO. His collection was pure elegance, class and poise.

5. TUBO

We have loved this Luxurious womenswear brand from afar, but it was really amazing to finally meet the creative director, who have been creating these stunning gowns. “TUBO” is a Nigerian brand whose collection was pure fire. Every single piece was a showstopper. From the off shoulder looks to the long pencil dresses, we loved every single look.

6. NADREY LAURENT 

A beautiful ready to wear collection full of colour, and sexiness. NADREY LAURENT formerly known as Totally Ethnik is a Luxurious womenswear brand that focuses on making the woman look beautiful and confident. Her collection is what I call the “HOT TREND”. Her designs were simple, stylish and full of youth. We are very sure this collection will sell out immediately they are ready.

7. ABRANTIE THE GENTLEMAN

From New York to Accra, one of Ghana’s Favorite menswear brand ABRANTIE THE GENTLEMAN. This year Abrantie The Gentleman gave us something extra and we loved it. Afrocentricity, a burst of colour, swagger and Classique are words that describe his collection best. We love the Vlisco Fabric used in the collection.
