Adèle Dejak is a Nigerian designer. Born in Nigeria and raised in Cambridge, she studied typographic design at the London College of Printing and worked as artistic director for the bestselling Italian fashion magazine before launching her own label in Nairobi.

Her line of fashion accessories is rooted in the heart of Kenya where she creates her unique contemporary collection ranging  from ostrich eggs, to beaded sandals, earrings and bracelets from West Africa, bags made with Congolese leather and kuba handkerchiefs, kitenge (African wax), Congo bakuba, Nigeria asoke, glass and brass beads from West Africa or Europe … Using natural materials such as bone, cow horn, ebony or recycled brass and aluminum readily available, the brand’s design is easily recognizable.


Adele Dejak’s work is constantly evolving. Building on a vibrant African heritage, Adèle Dejak has created a collection that celebrates beauty and showcases the African luxury movement.


Enthusiastic and optimistic Adele appreciates the abundance of the African scenery and the profusion of amazing natural resources from which functional objects can be created. The dynamism of the city of Nairobi has inspired her collection as people embrace and appreciate art. The local fashion industry is experiencing an explosive growth: with fashion events increasing every year. The Kitenge is now being worn on red carpets and by fashion figures like Anna Wintour.
