At Shrimpton Couture we are long time fans of the gorgeous and wonderful Anita Quansah! In fact, one of the best things about jetting off to London last year was meeting Anita in person. She is even more fantastic then her reworked jewels - if that is possible!
Anita has the uncanny ability to take materials one would never think to mix, add a dollop of the exotic & draw on her African roots, and then finish her pieces off with the decadence of a couture piece. The results are amazing and I always feel my photos do not do them full justice. They are not for the woman who wants to blend in and become part of the crowd. No, they are proclamations of individuality and boldness.
We are extra super spoiled at Shrimpton Couture because Anita creates capsule collections that incorporate vintage bits and pieces, all made specifically for the site, and each is the only one that exists! You just can't get more exclusive than that! And now Alicia Keys is as spoiled as us!
The entire Shrimpton team was screaming with excitement to see Alicia Keys not only wearing an Anita Quansah London piece in the latest issue of Vibe, but she wears one on the cover! Both the pieces that made the magazine were custom made for this specific shoot, but both were made based on two existing designs made for us - and BOTH of the originals creations are in the shop right now - Alai and Sienna!
Alicia looks beautiful and we are so proud of Anita! xxx
