The Ghanaian womenswear brand played on a mix of glitzy sequins on evening styles with print for the collection debuted at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town only recently.
Monocape details on jumpsuit, fringe detailed midi dresses, tassel tops and bottoms, sprawling sequin bottoms paired with bardot puff sleeve tops, bardot embellished pieces, bustiers and more glittering offerings.
‘The Great Gatsby’ collection is inspired by a Gatsby party in all its glamour and splendour set in the 1920’s, with a modern African twist.
“The 1920s was a time of great change in the world of fashion for women, with the introduction of new styles and perspectives. This era redefined womanhood and bridged the gap between wealthy and working class women.
“My vision with this collection is to showcase a glamourous African woman in luxurious Afro-fusion garments inspired by the Great Gatsby. With African inspired fabrics from Printex Limited as well as fur, feather, fringing and sequins in a nod to the era, this collection displays the silhouette of the feminine form with luxurious attention to detail. It is also a first for us in the sense of a truly luxury collection from a predominantly ready-to-wear brand.” Ami Yomekpe an architect and Creative Director of Afromod Trends shares her thoughts and vision for the collection.
