A MOMENT WITH...

FASHION DESIGNER STYLISTA

Araba Stephens Akompi is the lady behind the Ghanaian label “Stylista”, which she started five years ago.

With her collection in celebration of the African woman, she wanted to show respect for the classics and the Vlisco designs that have been around for a long time, but show them in a new modern way. “I didn’t just want to pick the newest designs,” she says. “Vlisco started 170 years ago. The message of her collection was really clear: “no matter how old or long ago a fabric was created it can still be used today in a modern way.”
