Adèle Dejak, Queen of Accessories
Born in Nigeria and based in Nairobi, Kenya, Adèle Dejak cut her teeth in the world of typographic design in England and Italy before moving to Nairobi, Kenya in 2005 and turning her attention to accessories design. Adèle found herself intrigued by the natural beauty of the horn and begun to experiment with techniques of creating unique shapes and fashioned pieces.
The Adèle Dejak brand is known for their unique hand-crafted fashion accessories inspired by African shapes, textures and traditional techniques, the cutting-edge pieces sit perfectly between artefact and high fashion statement designs.
Adèle Dejak collections express the designer’s acute appreciation for African-made fabrics, including Kuba cloth and kitenge (wax print); a dedication to using recycled materials including rice and cement sacks, brass, aluminium and glass and; a commitment to exceptional quality – using only the best materials and employing some of the most talented artisans in the East African region.
