About Estella Couture

Design philosophy
Mass, generic dressing isn't very interesting and every woman really should be wearing dresses that flatter and complement their pluses and those that also help them hide their minuses.
Estella couture designs are rooted in timelessness, originality, not trend, and they exist in a world of their own, her designs and use of materials are things that have not been done before.
Estella couture uses fabrics that have not made it into the international fashion scene in forms that can be worn by all, irrespective of race or nationality and she is working tirelessly to get the world to see more of the exotic, ethnic and traditional fabrics that are locally made in developing countries.
The original vision for her clothing line was to create garments that combined great personal style with long lasting utility. Clean, modern shapes, a nod to the classics, and an element of surprise that most of the time nodded towards showing off the sensual curve of the feminine form, and these are the fundamental principles Estella Ogbonna's design philosophy. Major design considerations remain elegance, uniqueness, originality and enduring quality. And this same philosophy is being applied to the new lines Ms. Estella is launching: the jeans (Jeankara), the bridal/red carpet collection (Estella Alfá), and beauty products.

Inspiration
Mostly inspired by exotic, ethnic, cultural, native fabrics and accessories from all over the world. Especially the ones that are hand-woven and created by artisans or local people. Maintaining and sustaining local artistic and creative skills of weaving, painting and dyeing inspires Ms. Estella to create designs that would flatter a woman no matter the part of the world she lives in.
