What sets Duaba Serwa apart is its signature triangular pleated aesthetics, which are a testament to Nelly’s eye for the extraordinary and her dedication to craftsmanship. Her brand prides itself on using luxurious fabrics, vibrant colors, and intricate details, all combined with their signature triangular origami pleats.

Furthermore, Duaba Serwa works with highly skilled women in Ghana and Burkina Faso to create their woven fabrications, preserving traditional weaving techniques that are at risk of becoming extinct.

1. Jackie Appiah

As the couture queen she is, Jackie Appiah broke the internet and took over the Africa Magic Viewer’s choice awards in the most spell-binding gown by Duaba Serwa and we’ll one day tell our kids about this legendary look.

2. Eva Omoghomi

Director of Community Engagement to King and Queen, Eva Omaghomi, made headlines during the coronation of King Charles III with her traditional yet contemporary African look. Her standout ensemble, an Origami Blazer with a matching skirt in peach, was created by none other than Ghanaian designer, Duaba Serwa.

3. Becca

After a long hiatus from the media and performances, we woke up to see singer, Becca in a mini origami textured skirt and a batik cropped top in 2022 and our lives have never been the same.

4. Ms Adjei

This look has us in a chokehold *respectfully*

5. Afua Hirsch

Where there is Luxury, there’s definitely a Duaba Serwaa piece close by. Best Selling author, Afua Hirsch wore a creased under-bust crop top with a corseted waist origami textured plisse skirt to the British Luxury awards.

6. Lupita Nyongo

TBH, Lupita Nyongo’s look should be place in a Museum if the world doesn’t mind. The Osacr-winner rocked a black version of the signature origami textured gown to Tina Lawson’s wearable art gala and we’ve been losing our minds ever since over that look.

7. Anne Sophie Avé

Even the diplomats love a Duaba Serwa look just like the former French ambassador to Ghana and honorary black woman, Anne Sophie who wore a silk charmeuse blouse with the signature corseted origami textured triangular pleated mermaid skirt.

8. Claudia Lumor

Ghana’s Anna Wintour, Claudia Lumor is not one to be seen in anything less than exceptional. Here she is wearing the origami textured quarter-length skirt in a customized emerald green with a batik body cropped top in yellow and mustard tones 

9. Berla Mundi

Berla Mundi hosted the GUBA X Grammy Awards brunch in Duaba Serwaa early this year. It’s really the cinched waist and peek-a-boo with all that origami pleats for us.
