About the designer
Growing up in the West African culture where color and exuberance is celebrated in women’s wear, Helena Aidoo-Morrison, was inspired to create a contemporary fashion line that integrates African print with innovative and modern designs.
Since childhood, Helena has always had a keen eye for fashion and accessories, which earned her the nickname ‘Spice Girl’ by family and friends. She began crafting and designing belts and purses as a hobby at the age of 16 and maintained this pastime during her college days. Personal pieces caught the eye of admirers and before she knew it, she was running a micro-business.
Helena’s first collection was a modest line of print fabric purses, an easy addition to an outfit that would keep her clients sophisticated and bold with a pop of bright and exotic colors. After the success of the purses, Helena innovatively incorporated African print fabric into a swimwear collection that took the swimwear industry by surprise.
After graduating college, Helena is now a full time fashion designer and wardrobe stylist – mastered in pattern making and the art of cutting, and celebrity fashion styling. Helena was running Aya Morrison in New York City, where she styled and designed for a diverse client base, both celebrities and non-celebrities alike. Now she has opened her atelier in Accra, Ghana. We are definitely fans of her work.
