Fashion: A Look at Christie Brown’s Virtual Runway Collection, SS20

Christie Brown
Top fashion designers in Ghana

#HellurrFashionistas,

If you follow this blog you would know that I am a fan of Christie Brown, spotlighting her runway collections at the Lagos Fashion Weeks. Check out some of the pieces here.

In light of the Covid 19 lockdown that has had the fashion industry reevaluating its structures of running multiple fashion shows in one year, and the Black Lives Matter protests that escalated with the killing of George Floyd, as well as other black humans, Christie Brown’s collection itches to clothe the African woman with feminity grace and originality, while staying true to her kaleidoscopic sides in these traumatic times.

MEDIA

The media for this collection consists of a fashion film, poetic words that affirm the black woman and a virtual runway show featuring about 22 pieces in all made from a mix and match of patterned fabrics; wax print and hand made batik using the Christie Brown signature hand made embroidery technique to cleverly weave them together.

COLOUR PALETTE

The colour palette includes creams, browns and azures, coppers, lilac tye dye, greys, orange, golds, silvers and blacks, displayed over silvery-grey back drops.

FAVOURITE PIECE

My favourite piece from this collection is this cream tunic with a stunning neckline with singeing detail at the waist and cobalt pants.
