Beatrice Korlekie Newman aka KORLEKIE, is an afro-British designer whose collections stand for alluring elegance and glamor with a strong influence in traditional crafts.

Beatrice's signature look consists of heavy embellishment, beading and intricate handwork that is inspired by her Afro-European background/culture and takes inspiration from the beautiful beading and embroidery of African clothes and lace fabrics. Korlekie is also inspired by the regal heritage of monarchs such as the Tsars and illustrious work of Edmund Dulac in 1001 Arabian Nights, Harry Clarke and Arthur Rackham, to name a few, which by color and intricacies is always referenced in her work.
