Austrian Lace Nigerian Fashion Event 2011: Ituen BasiPosted on Thursday, June 2nd, 2011 at 1:26 AM

Ituen Basi in this collection combines a mix of influences. We are presented with Japanese Kimono style tops, 1920′s low waist dresses, and also catch a glimpse of the flapper and fringe dresses from that same era. The high-neck tie bow dresses are very reminiscent of the Victorian era. Although very eclectic in her choice of influences for this collection, she manages to keep it all in sync.
She presents simple everyday garments like shirt dresses, basic tie bow blouses which she juxtaposes with a lot more up-scale garments, which showcase the versatility of the brand.
True to form we see wide-leg pants assert itself as this seasons hottest trend and bold coloured and textured pants showcasing their translatable appeal.
Ituen Basi sought to present the fluidity of Austrian lace, to showcase its ability to successfully allow for re-modelling and re-shaping.
