Eki Orleans, Representing Africa Worldwide.
The Eki Orleans philosophy is about fusing vibrant prints with the delicate texture of silk. The designer, Hazel Aggrey-Orleans, whose inspiration is traditional West African patterns, creates her own interpretation of these cultural and intricate patterns. Like many upcoming designers, she is self-taught. The concept of the line began with a collection of scarves that combined different fabrics from India and Africa. After perfecting her technique of combining cultural prints, Hazel ventured out into designing her own garments that embody the uniqueness of her concept and collection. This is what makes Eki Orleans truly distinctive. For more information, visit the Eki Orleans website here.
