Debuting its CB 2021 holiday collection “SLEIGH,” Christie Brown pulled out all the stops for a fashion show. With a DNA firmly rooted in the African heritage, Aisha Ayensu celebrated some of the silhouettes and designs from her past collections with ladylike ensembles with reimagined corset detailing and subtle cut-outs, redefining Christie Brown’s aesthetics for the 2021 holiday collection.
The show took place on Friday (December 17, 2021) in Accra on a not-so daring note with pieces that encapsulated a whole new meaning to the CB glamour: bare, bold, and chic. Models were outfitted in dressy and playful pieces including embroidered jackets, dress with back cut-out, peekaboo tee-shirt, asymmetric skirt, little black dress, wide-leg pants, shoulder-baring pieces, and lots more.
In what looks like the end of the show, the creative director Ayensu walked onto the catwalk with her lookalike daughter who was dressed in a white skirt and black t-shirt inscribed with “Africa Your Time Is Now” in bold white letters. She was followed by the creative team and models as the audience keep cheering on her.
