Hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for the work/school week. I've been a little busy myself because my brother has moved all the way from England and we spent the weekend together full of laughs, movies and good food! It's crazy how growing up, we were at each other's throats and I hated how controlling he was...but now that we're both adults, we get along fine. Sure we have clashing opinions at times but at least now we both listen more and try to give each person their own space. i guess its one of those things that just happen as you row older and mature so if you're fighting with your brother and think it'll never end...trust me, things change and it gets better!
Well, moving on to the point of this post. I feel like I'm so so late on this one and it is long overdue. I meant to feature this designer back in November but other things have been on my mind and now that she is becoming so big and dressing many African celebrities, I thought this might be a great opportunity to talk about this extremely talented designer and my new designer crush!
Nelly Abogaye is the Ghanian mastermind behind the Duaba Swerwa line.
She is not completely new to the Fashion Industry as she started out by making jewelry before branching out into clothing but her big hit was during last year's Africa Fashion Week as well as Ghana Fashion Week. I instantly noticed her stuff and was drawn to it because of the colors,prints and very feminine cuts. I won't lie, I like just about every single piece from her S/S 2013 collection and have been trying to get a hold of her for months!! I need to get at least 1 dress from her before I turn 24, so I would really love to know what price range her stuff falls into. She has a website that is still under construction which you can view here
You can view her 2012 collection here but I want to bring you her S/S 2013 collection. SO without further ado, I present to you, my absolute favorite collection in the world at the moment; Duaba Serwa:
Fresh off the runway...
|This is the one I absolutely wish to get!|
