She started IDA ARTISANS in 2016 when she began wearing her own SMOCK FABRIC designs popularly known as FUGU, and found a thriving demand for it among her friends.
“I was inspired to use fashion to project my culture and people, and to add a different touch and style to the smock fabric designs, popularly knows as Fugu or Batakari”, she says. Her style projects the rich cultural and artistic heritage of the people of the Upper East Region of Ghana, where she hails from and their values: courage, hardwork and ambition. The distinct visual style of Ida’s creations are made from luxury Artisan produced materials, using age-old traditional methods of production. Among her chief influences she says, “my work is influenced by the rich colour and aesthetic of the people of Northern Ghana and in later years, fashion houses like Nallem and Christie Brown”.
In the next five years, Ida hopes to build Ida Artisans into an internationally recognised brand, that is popular on international fashion runways and is featured on the covers of fashion magazines like Vogue and Glamour.
