Cameroonian Traditional Fashion Designer Amah Bertrand is proving to us that African fashion can be consumed with appreciation at home and abroad during the best family occasions we host. The CEO and creative director of Amah Fashion House #AFH Amah Bertrand tells us #AFH is a luxury clothing brand that provides creative and stylish African wears at affordable prices. AFH is all about being African and proud of your roots. Born to a Cameroonian and a Nigerian parents, has allowed the designer to bring personal experiences into the prints he designs .
When asked about his inspiration for the lovely traditional wedding collection in African prints, the detailed and creative Cameroonian traditional fashion designer tells me, “Very often the outfits and prints I design tell an African story. I love our beautiful colors! I draw inspirations from all angles I can’t really be exact coz just walking into a fabric store seeing a particular quality fabric gives you an idea of what to do with it and I try as much to be creative and unique in my own way”.
The designer is famous for tailoring outfits to clients specifications rather than mass production as other fashion designers do. He went further to state: I draw inspirations a lot from how I see life personally and relate my fashion sense to what I will wear in person for any occasion if it were me. Its all about my personal taste towards fashion and I always try to be creative when bringing out the best for my clients..
