Eredappa Hart is a Nigerian born designer who has mastered the art of combining classic European lines with traditional African Ankara fabrics and luminescent beadwork to create a stunning collection that has become the talk of the fashion world. Eredappa studied Business in England but upon her return to Nigeria in 1994, she rediscovered her love of fashion. Beginning with designing unique footwear and handbags, her accessories were sold in France and Italy. But it was the emergence of the Eredappa label in 2006, specializing in womenswear, that made the fashion world sit up and take notice. Clean lines, bold color and intricate beading are the focus of every piece.
She creates stand-alone, head-turners that leave a long lasting impression. Eredappa crafts her own story in contrasting colors and bold splashes of beading in multi-layered applications that appear three-dimensional. African art meets European sensibility in classic, luxurious and distinct garments that display Eredappa’s understanding of what makes a woman look her best.
