Papa Oppong is a young, extremely talented fashion designer, illustrator and artist from Ghana whose work has been widely recognized, leading to him working with global brands, the likes of Swarovski, M.A.C. cosmetics, Adidas and Macy’s. His illustrations have also caught the attention of celebrities, Rihanna and Amber Rose.

I’ve always loved the idea of designing clothes. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been drawing fashion figures and styling them myself on paper.

See his feature on CNN’s African Voices here and he talks about his fashion collections and gorgeous hand-painted clothing here.

His illustrations are certainly eye-catching and have won our hearts. In a world of many many fashion illustrations, we especially love his use of flowers in designs!

…I am well aware of the seven billion people in the world, so I try to be as unique as possible, to be green in the red balloons, you know to stand out.
