Jessique's Eboutique

Janet Opoku is the owner of the eboutique Jessique, she graciously allowed GhanaCelebrities.Com insight to her team’s world.

First and foremost, Janet mirrors her sophisticated line in so many ways: prompt, polite and positive. When asked about influences the she said, “I admire the western elegance of the 1950s and 1960s, this has influence on my designs.

I love the flamboyant African prints. I am particularly fond of the Kente clothe, the Kente clothe is a classic design rich, vibrant and global recognizable. We intend to use the Kente print for many of Jessique designs.” This makes me happy because I have long felt Kente has been neglected in the fashion arena.

In reviewing the works of Jessique, I was extremely impressed by the overtly feminine appeal of the line. When you wear a Jessique dress, your confidence rises at the glow that it gives you.

Janet Opoku further explained on her approach, “I envision Jessique woman feeling attraction and very special. This is because she appreciates style and high quality.” It is evident in the few clothes you see here, which give the vibe of a uber trendy sheik lady.

If you are ready to move on from wearing the same old “sleet and top” that the by the way dressmaker creates for you in the name of staying true to your roots, then Jessique is for you.

Even when delving into urban fashion, Jessique emphasizes a blouse that will hug the figure as you can see from the jeans and top picture. Read our full interview below…

GhanaCelebrities.com: Tell me about the kinds of clothes you design, do you have a preference for a type of color and material?

Jessique: We design ladies wear – for the modern day woman with a defined sense of personal style. Our aim is to bring out styles that have a timeless appeal which looks good today and will still work ten years from now. Simple and unique, that’s our signature tune.

GhanaCelebrities.com: Please what are your goals for Jessique?

Jessique: We hope to make Jessique a household name and a global brand.  This will be made possible via our online boutique. We then hope to open a boutique, and also find partner with other boutique to sell our range.

GhanaCelebrities.com: What are two “must haves” for anyone’s wardrobe (men/women)?

Jessique: The two ‘must have’ for both sexes a good fitting pair of black trousers and a good tailor cut blazer, this is a ‘must have’ for a cold climate like the UK.

GhanaCelebrities.com: Do you ever have designers approach you to make African print clothes for men, if not why do you think there aren’t that many out there?

Jessique: I‘ve not been not approached by any designers as yet, but I’ve male friends who reckon I should include men’s range in my collection, maybe in the near future.

GhanaCelebrities.com: If I missed to ask anything you wanted to share please feel free to fill our readers in:

Jessique: African print designs have become increasingly popular.  Within the last couple of years we’ve seen the use of exotic fabric in the international fashion community vastly increased.

I want to encourage your readers to patronize this market more, let us incorporate African-inspired pieces into our daily and evening wear. Jessique designs has a high street appeal with affordable price tag, we want inspire African women to dress outside the box.

    This is what i’m talking about. There are so many African designers out there wanting their creaction seen or represented. I’m sure they would not mind giving their products for free to any African star of their choice, for advertisement purposes just like big name western designers do on special occasions such as oscar, grammys and other big star manifestations. It’s all about using a good idea to benefit your own. smvafrica898@gmail.com

    I agree with you on the shoes, the right one’s can make such pretty color pop. Hey SassyChic how about we do a make-over for a lucky reader with some of these African prints?

    Well, we could have the readers submit a picture of their best clothes, shoes, purse for “dress-up” wear. Then out of that selection we choose a Jessique design that would compliment all those accessories. We’d call it Makeover Magic with African Print. What do you think? I’ll email you though
