Welcome to the fashion design world of Wala Afour by Bernie Adjei
Bernie Adjei is a self-taught Ghanaian-American fashion designer who discovered his love for the arts and fashion while studying to be a Food Scientist at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana. He moved to the United States in 2009 and earned an MBA from University of Mary Washington in 2016. In 2015, he decided to take fashion by the horns and pursue it full time.
Wala Afour is a Ga (Ghanaian language) phrase which means t'is life we plead. It is the idea that life is all we ask for, and that all other things are secondary. Life is full of experiences. The brand's vision is to inspire feelings and experiences that create timeless memories through the design of custom apparel and accessories for both men and women. Bernie believes that there’s a place for everyone in fashion, and that diversity gives the world color, richness and depth. The brand is, therefore, influenced by diversity and Bernie's rich African heritage.
Wala Afour designs for the modern person who dares to be different and stand out. By using different types of fabrics, patterns and textures he creates unique special occasion pieces and bridal/bridal party clothing. For about the same cost of buying and altering a mass produced garment, you could get a custom-made outfit by Wala Afour that no one else has.
