Meet Anrette Ngafor Akinyele for LIIBER LONDON
Liiber London is all about self-expression. Established in 2012 by Anrette Ngafor Akinyele, this hip style draws life from global sights, sounds, shades and shapes that bubble in its birthplace of London. “London is such a melting pot of all things creative! I wanted to create vogue that reflects the extraordinary art, music and chic I’ve experienced both in this amazing city and during my travels around the world,” explained Ngafor. She previously co-founded KiRette Couture – the fashion house which funked up her native Cameroon’s toghu chic with a globe-trotting style set. The fashion graduate now steps into a new venture with a debut collection, “Vigour” – an expression of the complexity and colour of being female. “She’s got verve, drive and a free spirit. But above all, she’s a one-off – just like our exquisite pieces.” Feel the Liiberation.
Anrette, would you describe yourself as a fashionista[LB1] ?
1) Oh yes, definitely because I never like to look like anyone else for my style, as do my clients.
What inspires you in life?
2) A lot of things in life inspire me from culture, music, arts, technology and architecture.
Who would you take out on a date, Idris Elba or Fally Ipupa?
3) Seriously, this question gets me all confused. Idris is super and I love his work and he certainly knows music. Now Fally Ipupa can definitely wind the waist when it comes to dancing so, I’d have to take both on my date. Idris as predate and Fally for afters!
What are your favourite colours?
4) You can tell am not afraid of my colours as I love blocking but I personally love my tans and orange.
5.) If you were detained on an Island who and what 3 items would you take with you?
I am definitely taking my fabulous and creative husband along and I cannot leave without my Samsung galaxy S4, my sketch book and music.
