Simply “To Dye For”! Presenting the 2013 Resort Collection by Ghanaian Fashion Label – Christie Brown

Christie Brown Resort Collection 2013 - January 2013 - BellaNaija012
After a departure from their signature aesthetic with 2012’s XUTRA, Ghanaian fashion label Christie Brown returns with a 2013 Resort Collection. This collection is described as “flirtatious and whimsical“, we totally agree!
This time Christie Brown’s designer, Aisha Obuobi experiments with tie dye and batik. She says she was inspired by Grace of Grazie Fabrics in Ghana who has successfully built a 20 year old batik/tie dye business by “fusing the most complementary of colours to make unique non-replicable prints.

We love the fusion and collaborative story behind this collection.

    i love all the collection, they look really classy. take note some wannabe naija designers

    Apart from Look 8, the fabric choices are so wrong. All that mixing of cheap lace and lycra with cotton print and that awful ruffling on an almost perfect dress (look 2) are just wrong. Christie Brown has an eye for commercial design but she definitely needs refinement. It’s quite disappointing given that the designs could have been wayyy better.

    PS: Is it just me or super designers such as Maki Oh & JBL are heavily criticized by BN commenters while average work such as this one are very celebrated? A little telling on the crowd type, isn’t it? Just a thought.

    • Non professional opinion January 21, 2013 at 12:19 pm

      I couldn’t disagree more. Her fabric choices are in line with her price point so I’m not expecting silk chantilly. Also her finishing is neat enough to make inexpensive fabrics look good unlike some of the “super designers” whose puckered seams and wavy hems make couture silks look like bargain basement acrylic.
      Maki Oh is an avant-garde designer so I wouldn’t expect the masses to buy into what she is doing as its very much for the “Fashun!” crowd ( I love her by the way). And jbl is much loved by this audience but lately imho she has fallen off her game in terms of the design while her pr game still remains on point and I’m sure she has many crowd pleasing collections in her future so no worries.
      We are however in agreement about look 8. The colours are lovely and I think I’m going to order it.

    Her work is consistently good. In the past I’ve found it a little too “girly” for me and while the feminity is still there the sophistication seems to have stepped up as well. Does she have a Lagos stockist and are her pieces ready to wear cos my purse is itching.

    • ANONYMOUS January 21, 2013 at 12:13 pm

      Yeah her designs are stocked in Temple Muse(No 21,Amodu Tijani str off sanusi fafunwa,vi)

  • The original Beebee January 21, 2013 at 10:18 am

    I am not sure if we are looking at the same dresses, but to me they are all boring looking, especially the fabrics.

    Christie Brown aka Aisha Oboubi its about time you opt for another career with your psychology degree, getting bored of your so called fashion business. Shift off Duaba Serwa is here. Take your creative design seriously……… Poor customer service at your shop, you act like you are the only Ghanaian Designer based is Ghana…..all I am saying is your brand is a time bomb


  • S. Boateng January 27, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    Give me a break ………Bella Naija were you bribed? show me the creativity in this………

    When designers showcase in international shows they grow wings…..there are more designers coming up from Ghana…. Christie Brown get your act together your collections lacks maturity and luxury feel. Your brand is not luxury, u use cheap fabric with a road side tie and dye company and you come and tell us this is luxury

    More designers are coming… thought you got this game wrapped around your finger then pop comes Duaba Serwa……….
    Humility goes a long way …… encounter with you was not pleasant
    Watch this space
