Bespoke jewellery curator Anita Quansah created Anita Quansah London in 2006. After obtaining degree as a textile designer from Chelsea College of Art and Design London. Anita entered the fashion industry, collaborating and creating unique embroidered textiles pieces for some of the leading textile and fashion design houses such as Christian Lacroix, DKNY, Diane Von Furstenberg, Ischiko, Victoria Secret, Ecko and textiles Weisbrod Zurrer and Sandy Starkman.
She has collaborated with Christian Lacroix, designing and embroidering pieces that featured on the runway for his Haute Couture show.
Jewellery design started as a way of Anita Quansah using her collections of textiles and vintage gems to create works of art, but her pieces quickly grew a cult following. Immediate press attention followed, with international editorials such as German Vogue, Elle Germany, Elle Serbia, British Vogue, Elle UK.com, The Independent, Dare2magazine, Muse, German Tush, Flux, SVA, Fashizblack, Pref, Sublime, Candid, Vision and a book New African Fashion, all featuring her jewelleries.
Anita Quansah London is a curation of varying mix of unexpected elements fused with reclaimed parts of vintage jewellery, semi precious stones, rare African beads and textiles.
All masterfully pieced together to create expressive, unusual, handmade, one-off strong statements which have strong stories weaved into them. Each bespoke piece conveys a message which are relevant in the past, the now and the future to come.
Anita Quansah London jewelleries are not only a celebration of creativity and art but each one is curated with love and passion a signature of the brand.
British Vogue recognised Anita Quansah London as one of the “Best Buys” featured in the magazine and in October 2011 Anita Quansah London was nominated for Best Accessories Designer Award at the AFI award in South Africa.
