Lauren Haute Couture is a sophisticated women’s fashion brand originated in Ghana founded by Lauren Ama Bartels. After graduating from Joyce Ababio School of Creative Designs, the designer further went to develop her career as a fashion designer creating extraordinary and extravagant pieces for celebrities and clients.
Despite building the aesthetic of her brand in the world of couture, she has also from time to time released ready to wear collections. Lauren has showcased on various platforms, her most recent fashion show was Accra Fashion Week where she wowed the audience with various unique pieces using silk African print fabrics as seen below.
With her beautiful designs, consistently being showcased on her Facebook wall, it is no surprise she bagged the ‘Designer Of The Year’ award at the just-ended Women’s Choice Awards.
The brand has styled and designed outfits for Nana Aba Anamua and Joselyn Dumas at the Golden movie awards and seeing them dazzle on that red carpet. Lauren Haute Couture is known for its elegant yet dramatic flair and aesthetic that provides a fairytale appeal to its clients’ preferences. Elaborate silhouettes and dramatic cuts form part of Lauren’s repertoire of styling making her a force to reckon with within the fashion industry.
Although these are slow and humble beginnings, we should expect a lot more from Lauren in the upcoming future.
UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
