Korlekie Trunk Show by Eni Majek
| K O R L E K I E |
They are numerous collections, from Pre-fall '13 to AW16 - which were displayed on a cute pop-up stand on Saturday 13th of February 2016, in the heart of Peckham. The collection, 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 Rita Ora, Alesha Dixon, The Noisettes and many more, including me hopefully soon! #PlaceMyOrder2016
"Korlekie is built on principles of modernisation of traditional craft techniques such as knitwear, combined with pioneering technology and methods that challenges convention in womenswear particularly formal and evening wear." - Elegance. Quality Craftsmanship. With Love. Korlekie.
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 <3) 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 AW16 collection.
