Today we’re introducing a regular feature on the blog called “Designer Spotlight”– where we highlight designs from an up-and-coming, or already established designer. Our featured Designer for this week is Ruby Buah of Kua Designs. We featured one of her necklaces and a clutch from her previous collection in the current (Spring/Summer 2010) issue of Munaluchi and we’ve gotten such a great response from it. Ruby has been busy promoting her latest collection which I must say is nothing less than FABULOUS. Not only are the necklaces to DIE for, but the new oversized fan purses are a gem. The spokesmodel, Akua Abeasi happens to be one of our own! (She’s the Associate Editor for Munaluchi Bridal and runs a really cute blog called Hot Spot with AJ.) And it doesn’t hurt to have such a BEAUTY modeling the pieces. Clean and simple, yet chic and trendy is how we describe this collection. Get a fresh and upclose view of some of our favs.
MEET THE DESIGNER
Ruby Buah actually comes from a background in Finance. Actually, she left her prestigious position as a Financial Analyst at Coca Cola to pursue her passion for Fashion. ‘Kua’ has a dual meaning: It’s Ruby’s mother’s name and also means “Keeping us Authentic”. The name is most appropriate for the collection, as it actually does incorporate authentic gemstones and original African fabrics straight from Ghana, her home country. Currently, she is in New York studying design at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology and parlaying her experience in finance into running her business.
Thanks so much Ruby for sharing your collection with us!
