Elan by Amelia
Elan by Amelia is a new British fashion house created by fashion designer Amelia Awele Nwajei. Her designs are a mixture of urban styles and African prints.
The name Elan which means Flare or Style in french is the moto that drives her creations.
I am a people watcher either on the street or over the internet. I get a lot of inspiration by watching women & their trends!- declares Amelia
What makes her brand unique is the creative fusion of African and western designs & style embodied in colourful African prints.
Keeping it entirely british, Amelia trusts local manufacturers & fabric sourcers to bring her creation to life.
In all her designs there must be a piece of Africa be it cotton, lace or line with african or tribal prints.
The collection is a mesh of formal & casual wear line designed for women of every size/age/ethnicity with distinct details and bright colors.
Amelia will be presenting her latest collection at London Ethnic’s Emerging Designers Showcase for London Fashion Week 2016.
