“Twisted Romance” – Ghanaian Design Label Mina Evans presents its New Collection Lookbook

Mina Evans Lookbook - March2013 - BellaNaija016

Delicate, inspired with a hint of enchantment. The Twisted Romance collection by Mina Evans brings twisted pleats to life. The collection inspired by the the image of deserted curved beach chairs played upon Minas’ creativity to recreate the curves with fabrics representing the chairs. This process led to the main focus of the pieces; the twisted pleats.

The designs have a delicate mix of colors in purple, mint, greens, purples, teal, beige and white for flattering skirts, classic dresses and separates. Known for its tie & dye fabrics, the same pattern was used here in purple and blue giving it a comforting familiar look. The Ghanaian label also used silk, organza and chiffon to compliment the hues.

    beautiful! i love Mina Evans ‘s designs

    • www.anemistyle.com March 21, 2013 at 2:59 pm

      Me too…I can definately WORK some of these and really like the colours!

    • mmmmh March 22, 2013 at 3:57 am

      It looks very mediocre to me… but then again, mediocrity is the new trend.
      It seems like everyone nowadayshas a fashion line and everyone is a designer, haba! LOL. These clothes look like something a junior apprentice sewed; plus the designs and style is already saturated. Can we please get something fresh, stylish and iconic?

  • Sweetie March 21, 2013 at 11:41 am

    Sorry but its not worthy of a collection 2 me. The finishing isnt 2 par.
    My opinion.

    • Sonia March 21, 2013 at 11:47 am

      What finishing? Lmaooooooooo… oversabi

      • Yve March 21, 2013 at 1:03 pm

        Activate interlock! Dynotherms connected! Infracells up! Mega thrusters are go! LET’S GO VOLTRON FORCE!

    • Iris March 21, 2013 at 12:27 pm

      Please, I’m not trying to be a troublemaker or anything I SWEAR, I’m genuinely curious. How can people spot things like finishing and stitches from the pictures? I’ve been wondering

      • Sonia March 21, 2013 at 12:52 pm

        Now ure talking! Not the pointing out flaws without evidence.

      • Yox the Professor March 31, 2013 at 4:53 pm

        I seriously wonder myself. I’ve come to learn that even God isn’t loved by all so haters gon always hate.

    • Teetee March 21, 2013 at 2:38 pm

      Wow, so you can see that far,….. Hope u are using your powers for good

    • bidibang March 22, 2013 at 4:55 am

      why are you ppl replying to this girl…the world is a very harsh place and too many people are angry and take out their anger on ppl.

      anyway sha i can see myself wearing most of her collection…great job

    • Omo1 March 26, 2013 at 10:30 am

      Some people are just outright down to bring others down…what’s up with the finishing? how can you even tell on a finishing merely looking at the pics..beside what finishing exactly are you talking about Tori Olorun?! na real over sabi

  • mandy March 21, 2013 at 11:44 am


  • Sonia March 21, 2013 at 11:50 am

    Em, this designer does not seem to have finesse and it shows in the color mixing and some styles… Fashion is not a joke, plz.

  • Ready March 21, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    Hawt! Hawt! LOVE. WANT.

  • Berry Dakara March 21, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    Onos O March 21, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    • Bleed blue March 21, 2013 at 12:27 pm

      Lol…what’s up with the gender declaration though? 🙂

    • Leanne March 23, 2013 at 12:38 am

      who asked you?

  • Peachy_mo March 21, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    Lol. well we all have different “styltitude” but honestly, I can’t imagine walking into someone wearing any…except for #11&12 (I can pardon) of these outfit….

  • Me2me March 21, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    As much as I’ll like to say Mina’s work is great i cant. There is just something really wrong with this collection. I feel the name twisted romance is so powerful and i expected to see that in the collection.

    This is really basic

  • bey March 21, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    Boring every season… Most african women have all this designs/cuts in their wardrobe, d styling is poor aswell. Just improve biko

  • BeeeBaby March 21, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    Apart from the chiffon see-through cpmbos i love them all…..quite Pretty!

  • Italian Princess March 21, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    @ Yve LOLLL

  • Teenaa March 21, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    The model’s body is flawless, nice pose.

  • Aunty Prada March 21, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    I guess it’s safe to say that this peplum trend isnt going anywhere anytime soon?

    • amaaa@yahoo.com March 21, 2013 at 3:46 pm

      Honestly I tire its like overeating and its getting to the point where I want to puke

    I loveeeeeee it very chic!

  • dazz right its me again March 21, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    babe you should have just used eku edewor as a model and then boom, positive feedback from the first comment to the last…

    • Tess March 21, 2013 at 6:09 pm

      Why Eku? Are there no other beautiful ladies out there? Welldone Mina, its not easy to follow a passion. Just pick the positive bits from the criticisms and come back better and stronger, you can only go higher!

    • Yetunde April 2, 2013 at 3:47 pm

      Lol! How random is this comment? I actually think this model’s skin tone suits the shoot better. Go Mina!

  • afripro March 21, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    whimsical! but its been done already

    • Leanne March 23, 2013 at 12:41 am

      i think thats what all the people above meant to say, in as much as i like african designers, most of their works are inspired by off the peg designs

  • Hahaha March 21, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    I love love this collection…
    Elegant and Classy all the way :p

  • @ajiriavae March 21, 2013 at 5:51 pm

    Beautiful, wearable, classic, the kind of clothes that you will wear and wear. Love them all.


  • Kyela March 21, 2013 at 11:20 pm

    I saw Mina on Fashionista 101 last week and she seemed to find something wrong with all the photos that were shown. So I tot she was going to blow my mind(thrill me more than the “iconic invanity” photos did
