Antoinette Ayikai Amuzu a Ghanaian born living in the UK. Antoinette’s vision for Ayikai is simple: To create a distinctive range of clothes that represent a fusion of contemporary design and African textiles. The result: a stylish collection of innovative, vibrant and unique fashion garments.
Ayikai Couture is quickly becoming the home of distinctive African fashion and accessories with an inimitable African feel. Most of my work is informed by my keen obsession with local culture, graphics and music and the Ghanaian ideology of design which is described to have an edgy style fused with visual poetry.
I have tried to blur the boundaries between Africa and the West, illustrating that ancient Ghanaian fashion can survive. The cut, fit and complementing soft tailoring ensure the garments move with flattering fluidity. My prime aim is to create fashion that would appeal to urbanites and the diasporic youth living in London. Above all to feel proud and make a statement whilst wearing AYIKAI COUTURE.
The garments feature natural fibre, hand dyed exotic batik fabric and elegant tailoring punctuated with carefully selected accents for multi-ethnic flair. These creations are designed for fun and for sophistication, for the young and the mature, for slim and full figures. My lines consist of one-of-a-kind, unique creations and of limited series. The patterns and colours of the clothing are unique and vibrant, adding spice and spark to any wardrobe.
