Christie Brown (CB) is a Ghanaian based luxury fashion brand founded in 2008 by Creative Director Aisha Ayensu. Named after Aisha's grandmother, a Ghanaian seamstress with no label of her own, Christie Brown is inspired by the countless artisans and visionaries that have come up before it. From women selling colorfully printed and intricately woven fabrics in crowded market stalls, to seamstresses expertly cutting out patterns by freehand.
Their ingenuity, pioneering spirit, and shared vision for clothing the African woman in prints and patterns that were native to her and kept her connected to herself are at the core of what continues to inspire us today.
We continue their legacy by being one of many voices turning the world's gaze towards excellence in African artisanship and craftsmanship. We stay grounded by remaining attentive to the African woman, her heritage, and how she navigates creating space(s) for herself in our world. Our pieces tell our unique stories, aided by the beauty and spirit of the women who wear them so well. Christie Brown. A movement in movement.
