Inspired by Fairytale Illusions, Art & Colors! “Daring” – Elegante by Tiannah Styling’s Summer 2013 Collection Lookbook

Just in time for the holidays, Elegante by Tiannah Styling‘s creative director, Toyin Lawani presents her summer 2013 collection lookbook, Daring.

The collection, which was showcased at the African Fashion Week, Los Angeles in October 2012,  is a mix of different fabrics including lycra, silk, chiffon, cotton and leather. According to rep for the design house, known for dressing celebrities including Tonto Dikeh, Yvonne “Vixen” Ekwere and Susan Peters, Daring was inspired mostly by her (Toyin Lawani) love for fairy tale illusions, art and colors.

The rep tells BellaNaija Style that the aim of this collection is to be artistic, bringing a youthful and fresh feel to the outfits.

  • nems December 21, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    I disagree with previous comments, this collections is unsually STUNNING, I love the mix n match , Ying Yang thing going on. My only critique is that the shoot looks sub par, the models, styling in general looks off. This could be a red carpet hit!

  • Goodnessme! December 21, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    I do like her collection i think Toyin Lawani’s Style is not for everyone but you can not deny the fact that she is very fashion forward and has amazing creations and a very good eye. Some of the collars on the clothes are a bit dated but hey she knows what she is doing and is good at it. Th use of colour and patterns is really good and fashion forward. i would just love to feel the fabrics.

    • singer December 21, 2012 at 5:30 pm

      Fashion forward is what we call confusing these days…

  • Madam the Madam December 21, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    This entire collection looks cheap, like something you would see in stores like Rainbow, Rave or Dots. The only thing that I would remotely consider in this mix is the polka dot dress, and only if it were entirely sleeveless.

  • Joyce December 21, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Na waooo, I reserve my comment.

  • Anon December 21, 2012 at 10:17 pm

  • Sweetie December 24, 2012 at 11:37 am

    does dis mean dat TOYIN LAWANI doesnt cater 2 BIG girls or BIG- breasted ladies who wudnt be caught braless.
    its not 4 everyone! too bad
    all des outfits are for flat chested women. not practical at all cos not even tape can keep big boobs in place for long.

  • vanessa December 25, 2012 at 8:45 am

    daring designs i like some of em,they r cool maybe the hair styling was an issue.i would have preferred a sleeek up do like the chignon to really show off the back instead of long hair conlicting with the clothes.overall i must say tianna is going well her designs are been accepted and even wiz kid dorns her wears.so dont hate this chic.watch out for her space.

  • Ray December 25, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    She killed it at music meet runway……I would say she was the best there….are pieces are very editorial

  • Let them say December 26, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    Who is fooling who? Ray of topfashionsagency or topfashionsgency- why gmail??? Why not company’s email. I expect a reputable NYC top fashion agency to do better than that. Toying Lawman crew, please come up with a better publicity/hype tactics, that’s too cheap. Good luck!

  • Let them say December 26, 2012 at 12:43 pm
