Passionate about fashion, upon graduating from high school, Anna Ngann Yonn enrolled at Paris fashion design school – ESMOD – where after three years of studying in the fields of women’s ready-to-wear and haute couture, she became a stylist. Back in her native Cameroon, Anna opened an art studio/showroom specialized in tailor-made items for women which soon became a successful business with a strong and constantly growing clientele.
In 2001 she opened her very first boutique in Douala and launched her clothing line ‘KREYANN’. The KREYANN style is pure and simple with a special touch that makes every piece unique. Fabrics are chosen for their components and the brand’s eclectic clientele is linked by one common thread: an open mind, and a love for the unique shapes, colours and precise details of the KREYANN pieces. Anna has participated in a number of fashion shows in Cameroon and abroad-events – namely Paris, Johannesburg, New-York, Abidjan, Mauritius, Durban, Ouagadougou, which she holds very dear to her heart and as she evolves on her journey she keeps setting new goals for the future, one of which being to generate continued awareness for her brand. Since 2011, Anna has also been the organizer of the renowned fashion show: The KWALK, the best fashion show event in central Africa. Her brand today now has two boutiques in Cameroon.
