Bahamian luxury handbag designer Anya Willique showcased her work in Fashion’s Finest exhibition space, where she received extremely positive feedback. It was also the first time that the new SS17 addition to the ethically and sustainably produced Conscious Collection was exhibited. In its seventh year, Fashion’s Finest is one of the biggest and most successful independent off-schedule events that coincides with London Fashion Week.
London based designer ‐ Anya Willique ‐ was born and raised in both the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands with the designs often referencing her Caribbean heritage and memories from the island. Only established for a year, Willique already gained the attention and support of The Royal Prince’s Trust and Anya’s bags have been gifted to international singer Laura Mvula and the founder of the Mobo Awards Kanya King.
[. . .] On reflection of the success of Willique and looking towards the year ahead for the brand, Anya states: “As a young, London based Bahamian woman and entrepreneur, I am proud of what Willique and I have achieved in a relatively short space of time. I believe that I am part of a new wave of successful and young black female creatives who represent diversity within the London fashion industry. Willique is a wonderful marriage of design, my Bahamian heritage and love of British craftsmanship – all lovingly produced in my luxury handbag range Willique. I look forward to the rest of the year, forging ahead with producing more collections and developing my brand.”
