Check out Anita Quansah, a London based design label’s 2014 collection tagged ‘ Silhouette of Power’, showcasing bold and elaborate statement neck pieces that can be described as ‘African Arts’.
According to the designer, Anita Horsfall, “I had so much fun creating these handmade pieces. The jewelries are all designed with the articulated armor like look in mind, harnessed with power, dominance, and with finished looks filled with elegance and grace with an illusion of ease and comfort with lavishly trimmed frills, flounces and feathers with that of intricate, decorative hand beading.”
She added: , “I hope to continue to celebrate my rich African heritage. This SS 14 collection of handmade jewelleries explores the rich African artistry and craftsmanship and that of rich, powerful, aristocratic glamour and pageantry of the 17th century characterized by high ruffled collars and bejeweled fabrics worn by Queen Elizabeth I of England.”
