In a prestigious recognition of her contributions to global fashion and cultural exchange, Christie Brown founder Aisha Ayensu has been named as a speaker at the upcoming NAACP International Entertainment Summit.

The summit, taking place on March 13th in Los Angeles, California, brings together a powerful assembly of Black creatives who are shaping industries worldwide. Ayensu will be a featured speaker on the panel “Collaborative Creativity Across Continents,” where she will offer insightful perspectives on the unique role fashion plays in bridging cultures and fostering dialogue.

Ayensu’s participation at the NAACP summit underscores not only her position as a leading fashion designer but also her commitment to using fashion as a platform for social change. Christie Brown actively supports initiatives focused on sustainability, community, and women’s empowerment in Ghana, demonstrating a holistic approach that extends beyond the runway.

About Christie Brown
Christie Brown (CB) is a Ghanaian-based luxury fashion brand founded in 2008 by Creative Director Aisha Ayensu. Named after Aisha’s grandmother, a Ghanaian seamstress with no label of her own, Christie Brown is inspired by the countless artisans and visionaries that have come up before it. From women selling colorfully printed and intricately woven fabrics in crowded market stalls, to seamstresses expertly cutting out patterns by freehand.
Their ingenuity, pioneering spirit, and shared vision for clothing the African woman in prints and patterns that were native to her and kept her connected to herself are at the core of what continues to inspire us today.
We continue their legacy by being one of many voices turning the world’s gaze towards excellence in African artisanship and craftsmanship. We stay grounded by remaining attentive to the African woman, her heritage, and how she navigates creating space(s) for herself in our world. Our pieces tell our unique stories, aided by the beauty and spirit of the women who wear them so well.

The NAACP advocates, agitates, and litigates for civil rights due to Black America.

From classrooms and courtrooms to city halls and Congress, our network of members across the country works to secure the social and political power that will end race–based discrimination. That work is rooted in racial equity, civic engagement, and supportive policies and institutions for all marginalized people. We are committed to a world without racism where Black people enjoy equitable opportunities in thriving communities.
