One of Ophelia Crossland’s new collection
Coming off the back of a successful showcase at the Global Qipao Exhibition and the Rhythms on the Runway Show, pan-African designer Ophelia Crossland presents its ‘Lookbook’ for their A/W19 collection.
Titled the ‘Timeless Collection’, it is inspired by stylish women whom the designer looks up to. From her grandmother, a former Miss Gold Coast; to her mother, a prolific fabric merchant; the collection celebrates the timeless love for fashion in her own family.
It also doubles as a capsule collection consisting of 20 outfits made with wax-textiles, also known as African prints, which despite its Indonesian origins, has become a symbol of identity for West Africans especially.
“To beautifully portray our inspiration onto our designs, we chose beautiful and delicate accessories to embellish the pieces. We reflect luxury and uniqueness in making of our pieces,” Ophelia stated.
Already receiving popular acclamation and reviews, the collection consists of detailed belts, embellished necklines, oversized pants, whimsical coats and ecstatic print skirts.
Ghanaian actress Joselyn Dumas and Regina Van-Helvert have been seen wearing different looks from the collection at various events.
