Let Me Tell You A Story.
It’s that time again, Fashion week! And as it approaches it’s always great to get involved in not only the old but new talent too. And seeing high quality, fresh, new talent is really great!
Such as that of Korlekie
Elegance. Quality Craftsmanship. With Love. Korlekie.
| K O R L E K I E | There are numerous collections, from Prefall13 to AW16 – which was displayed on a cute pop-up stand on Saturday 13th in the heart of Peckham. The collections, first launched in 2012, specialise in Luxury Crafted Womenswear, and was founded by Beatrice Korlekie Newman who is the designer and director of Korlekie. Having a first hand up close view of the collections really confirmed its exquisite, elegant, opulent and unique qualities. The garments all feature the skillful and delicate craftsmanship developed by Beatrice, with inspirations from Ghana and knit, beading and embellishment techniques. It has been worn by Alisha Dixon, The Noisettes and many more, including me hopefully soon! #PlaceMyOrder2016
They have many stockists, as well as Press Features in many magazines including New African Woman and my personal favourite – FABRIQ, featuring Mahogany Model Nana. As well as the show I attended, the cookbook collections are all beautifully shot and taken ( featuring models such as Sema and Patrish who are friends of mine ❤ ) which you can see below as well as in more details in videos.

And I was lucky enough to be able to attend the popup show as well as clients who attended every hour to see the models present in the Korlekie pieces. The collection that was introduced to us was the AW14 collection.

I would definitely recommend them! And if you like what you see, why not contact Korlekie?
The models; E. Mibo, T.Hunnigan, and C. Hunnigan were all booked from C Model Management, and were accompanied by the Director and Founder of the Model Management, Cherisea Giddings – and Social Media coordinator Jordon Riley.

The agency is registered in the UK, founded in 2015, and as Cherisea started out as a model herself, she explained to me how she enjoyed being behind the scenes and decided to recruit models and form CMM.
