Anita Quansah studied textile design at Chelsea College of Art and Design London. Since graduating, she has been working to develop and promote recycled textiles, by creating intricate pieces for fashion and interior.
Being involved with Indigo, Premier Vision in Paris and other such exhibitions has given her the opportunity to be involved with the fashion industry, collaborating and creating unique embroidered textile pieces for some of the leading textile and fashion design houses.
Her designs have been featured in editorials such as German Vogue, Elle Germany, British Vogue, Elle UK.com, Dare2magazine, Muse, German Tush, Flux, SVA, Pride, Fashizblack, Pref and Vision and many online fashion and style blogs.
In November 2010, she was nominated for the "Best African Fusion Designer" at the prestigious GUBA awards in London.
She's sold designs to DKNY, Diane Von Furstenberg, Ischiko, Victoria Secret, Ecko and textiles Weisbrod Zurrer and Sandy Starkman.
In 2004 she collaborated with Christian Lacroix, designing and embroidering a jacket which featured on the runway for his Haute Couture show in Paris
With the knowledge and inspiration gained from these experiences, she has moved on to design a collection of jewelry and fashion which is a bit of bohemian tribal fusion. Her designs are effortless chic with a modern twist, inspired by her passion for creativity, Culture, travel, nature, art, architecture, fashion and music of past and present generations.
Each piece is handmade in UK using vintage fabrics fused with reclaimed textiles, incorporating mixed metals, silver, gold, gunmetal and the introduction of colourful elements such as pearls, beads, rhinestones, ribbons and fringing giving the collection a sense of modernity with a hint of the past.
