Charlene Amankwah: 19 Year Old Fashion Designer Making Waves

Written By: Catherine Hagan—Fashion designer Charlene Amankwah, originally from Ghana, is a 19 year old student at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland who is making waves on the fashion scene. While pursuing her studies, Charlene also started designing, creating and selling clothes to her fellow students at the University in order to save some extra money to help her pursue her post graduate degree. The positive feedback and the numerous orders that have been placed for Charlene’s clothes together with the help from her parents led her to take on designing more seriously, and so came the birth of her eponymous clothing line: CHARLENE AMANKWAH.

When asked what the most difficult aspect of starting her clothing line is, Charlene responded, “The toughest part of having a clothing line is probably having to pay as much attention to [the] CHARLENE AMANKWAH clothing line as I do to school, it is tough juggling the two, however, I am from Africa and I know I have been given an amazing opportunitycompared to the less fortunate people back home, so there is no time for complaining, I intend to excel beyond all means in both CHARLENE AMANKWAH and Law School.

One look at your designs and it is obvious that you are a true talent! I really like that your clothes are different from so many other designs on the market because the African elements are there, but also subtle. Luuurve it all!
