Historically, most of the fabrics we use in our clothing are their unique in their texture, design, durability, and lightweight-cotton material which are sewn into garments. We seek to continue this tradition by fusing classic, Western cuts with African prints–wax print ankara and batik adire, all inclusive. However, many of our fabrics are sourced locally and tailored by professionals, local to our region.

THE GLAMOUR OF HARMONIZING AFRICA FASHIONS/STYLES WITH WESTERN DESIGNS
Despite the pertinent staying power tendency of using African inspired wax prints in the global fashion industry, we do not descend into that ubiquitous look. Instead at Pearl Krea-cions (PK Fashions Inc.) we created different but unique looks for the modern woman who wants to look her best for a fun night outing.
African fashions doesn’t have to mean batik, kente, Ankara, or traditional lace. Established that wax prints has gotten critically acclaim reviews from the international fashion world and it has also open endless opportunities for many designers, it is not the only state of African fashion. There’s so much more to African fashion than wax prints. With PK Fashions, we’ve seen what African fashion can be without the use of wax prints.
With that said, Pearl Krea-cion is leading the pack of determined African fashion designers drifting from using wax prints in their womenswear and menswear collection. I love, cherish and admire the pastel, peplum color block look and the blue panel sequin desired to fit dress for men from the fashionable model designs.
Just when the world thought the fashion industry’s obsession with African-inspired wax prints was for a season, PK Fashions continue to designs stunning looks for their clientele with spring and summer collection.

“To increase the visibility of African fabrics, clothing designs and styles through enhancing customer’s satisfaction so that Africa brands can become the envy of the fashion world and be able to withstand the market competitiveness, made available and accessible globally”.
To harmonize African styles and designs with Western inclination to fashion modeling. To become a global fashion industry that beautify the
- To Inspire a complete and unique self worth, confidence and happiness that create value and make a difference in our multicultural society
- To promote the harmonization of African culture of dress designs and styles with the Western heritage, through our custom design-to-fit creation, using African fabrics to attract and retain customers of high-valued fashion profile by bringing inspiration and innovation to every custom designed to fit clothing.
- It is evident that some significant developments have taken place in Western African fashion over the last few years. The first being that the perception of African fabrics and fashion are no longer seen by western audiences and buyers solely as “traditional” wear, a misconception which was always just another way of saying that what Africans made and wore fabrics lacked the finesse of western fashion.
- The other has been the growing number of African fashion designers (PK Fashions Inc) who showcase their work NOT on the catwalks as yet but on the street town and cities across Canada and the US
- Nonetheless, marketing on a global scale remains something of a stumbling block for most African brands. Since Western fashion brands do not rely entirely on their local markets, African designers shouldn’t have to either.
- This is where our organisation Pearl Krea-cions(PK) Inc. thinks it will make a difference by preparing African designers to work with western retailers, and bringing the two together.
