ANTM Cycle 14 Winner Krista White’s KiRette Couture Look at BET Rip The Runway 2011

March 1, 2011

Model Krista White of America’s Next Top Model fame wore this silk blue and orange KiRette Couture dress with printed ankara pumps and gold earrings at BET’s Rip The Runway 2011.

As you can see Krista wore her look without the extra embellishments like the sash or the decorative accents on the dress. Regardless, she looks simply fab in this look! Great to see African designers getting exposure on the red carpet! KiRette Couture is a fashion label from Cameroon created by designers Kibonen Nfi and Anrette Ngafor who featured their latest collection during the 2010 Africa Fashion Week New York.

KiRette Couture Bio: KiRette Couture is a revolution. And at its helm are creators Anrette Ngafor and Kibonen Nfi. Influenced by their passion for fashion and love for their roots, the duo weave traditional and contemporary styles to bring African sexy back to the street and catwalk.

Hatched in the New York chic bubble, KiRette Couture is mainly inspired by the “toghu” (also known as the Bamenda gown) – a colourful and intricately embroidered fabric typically worn, on special occasions, by the people of the North West and Western provinces in Cameroon.

Although the “toghu” cloth is KiRette Couture’s signature fabric, designs will not be limited to it. In true edgy and funky style, this one-of-a kind label aims to create a new fashion language which transcends racial and cultural borders by exploring, experimenting with and fusing various textiles. Our sourcing and manufacturing arrangements span across Africa.

We are an ethical brand and specialise in tailored, handcrafted and limited edition pieces. All our products are reasonably priced.

Do you love fashion, the arts or just the sweet sensation of creative freedom? Then hop aboard and spread the word. Let’s turn vogue up-side-down together! FACEBOOK
