Paulina says: Don't you just love it when beautiful, well-made furniture meets high-fashion!!!
That's exactly what transpired when -DAAR Living collaborated with Christie Brown for their, "LIFE-STYLE: where fashion informs interior decor' collaboration at the Christie Brown shop in Viva Court, Osu --last month.

Of course those of us in London, NYC and beyond are well aware of this concept and take the likes of London's Dark Room (, Paris concept store Colette, (, Emarati entrepreneur Omar Bin Khediya's Dubai based O-Concept Store (, Hong Kong's Goods of Desire (aka G.O.D) -Luminance -an uber luxurious lifestyle and fashion store founded by one of my all time favourite businesswoman, South African docility Khanyi Dhlomo (, Oliver Bonas ( -and even UK high street favourite Urban Outfitters ( et al, ---are all taken for granted but the concept store concept is still very new to Ghana. Thus, the above collaboration is soooo inspiring and forward thinking -that, I hope to see more of it!!!

 We launched! On the 15th December, 2013, with a fashion inspired exhibition with Christie Brown. 'LIFE -STYLE: where fashion informs interiors', was an insight into how DAAR Living, the interior accessories retail and service firm, works and creates. The Owner and Creative Director of DAAR Living, Senanu Arkutu, masterminded the event using personal favourites from past Christie Brown collections to show how fashion inspires her and the brands 2013/2014 designed and sourced unique pieces and 'styled' spaces. Each CB dress, skirt or jacket was paired with a home accessory, piece of furniture or decorated living installation. Many thanks to the Christie Brown team, the Wolfpack Entertainment team, the Crystal Park team and to ALL who were involved and who supported! If you missed it - enjoy the photos!
