Aisha K. Ayensu Fashion Designer and Creative Director at Christie Brown from Ghana
Christie Brown is a Ghanaian-based luxury women’s fashion brand. Founded in March 2008 by Aisha Ayensu, who also serves as the brand’s creative director, Christie Brown is inspired by Ayensu’s grandmother, Christie Brown.
As a child, Ayensu watched her grandmother, who was a seamstress, create rich, vibrant garments, and today, she crafts her apparel and accessories in that vein. The label has garnered significant international attention: besides winning the Emerging Designer of the Year Award in 2009 at the inaugural Arise Africa Fashion Week in Johannesburg, South Africa, Christie Brown was also the only Ghanaian label chosen to showcase in the Arise L’Afrique-á-Porter, in Paris as part of Paris Fashion Week in March 2010.
After only a few of years in the industry, Christie Brown has created a strong presence for itself, reflecting the personality and inspiration of the founder, with a continued promise of effortless sophistication in each design.
