September 2, 2015

Check out these must-see illustrations from Ghanaian fashion designer and artist Papa Oppong. The Accra based fashion Design student has already completed two womenswear collections – his second, a collaboration with Swarovski – and is building an even bigger name as an illustrator. The final year student states, “I’ve always loved the idea of designing clothes. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been drawing fashion figures and styling them myself on paper. I remember how I would get into so much trouble in primary, junior and senior high school for drawing on the school desks, my class work and homework books. I grew up in a home where everyone was generally very fashion conscious […] As time went by, I became more and more fascinated with fashion and art and would go on to watch a lot runway shows and study designers that I admired.” Explore his work below.
