Our signature style features: attention to detail, textiles, rich heritage and contemporary African prints. We source from West Africa selectively hand picked cotton linings and other materials such as glass beads. The designs involve intricate detailed; embroidery, bead work and personalised design features. The prints are in house designed, incorporated with detailed art work of paintings and drawings which are vibrant and rich in colour.
Our goal is to make customers look like modern royalty and feel like a king! In all our collections the final look is always inspired by an African king. The first collection called The Afrocentric Style Collection S/S 2015 was launched in June 2014 at London’s Graduate Fashion Week. The designer was inspired by a Nigerian king from the Hausa tribe called Alahji Ado Bayero, the model was styled like him with the head wrap, umbrella and shades. This collection received good feed back from the press and the public.
Vanessa Ofori is back with the launch of The Kente Inspired Collection A/W 2022. The inspiration behind the final look is a Ghanaian king from the Asante tribe called Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II. Vanessa Ofori is launching three looks and taking pre-orders from 21st November 2021 till March 2022. We ship internationally and the goal is to offer personalised sizes and explore other cultures outside of Africa.
