CHRISTIE BROWN. VISIBLY URBAN SUBSTANTIALLY AFRICAN.

CHRISTIE BROWN: all African yet still very urban.
I've been a long time fan of Christie Brown since the 2010 African Fashion Week [find the runway show pictures [HERE] on her site]. Christie Brown is not the name of the designer, her name is Aisha Obuobi [from Ghana]. Christie Brown believes that inspiration can be derived from anyone and anything. Aisha enjoys "exploring the intricacy and splendor of nature," and will go out into market places and be inspired by the people she sees or meets. On that note, I'm sure we all agree that inspiration can spring up from unexpected places.
A Christie Brown woman is just in one word "an incredible woman" ... [bring out the corny card, for this one, quick!] ... meaning it's for all women, cause we're all incredible. The acquired look from wearing a Christie Brown piece is to look effortless, modern and chic. And these outfits I would definitely pull out for a special event or if I ever lived in Europe [not England, more like Italy, France, etc where it seems life like these clothes is effortless, you know?]. 
TWO things you'd always notice about Christie Brown's pieces is that they portray confidence and that daring vibe ... and this is no mistake for Christie, this is what she looks to bring out in her work. 
With her work comes elegance in each piece, and these are most definitely for those events that a confident and elegant outfit is the way to go. Even if you're that elegant and confident person and like to dress that way everyday, it still works.

"Christie Brown is a Ghanaian based luxury women's clothing/fashion brand with a chief goal of satisfying and delighting "that modern woman who seeks a true and unique taste of Africa'".
Aisha Obuobi

@Somina B: I'm originally from Zambia but I lived in Nigeria for 10+ years when I was younger, most people consider me Nigerian though and I recently lived in Ghana but in the US 'cause of school. My dad is a diplomat so there is moving involved. :)
