“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.

      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?

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

      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.

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

      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

    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.

    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….

    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

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

    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!

    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

  22. Hahaha

    March 21, 2013 at 4:41 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
