Get ready for a dose of FINAfrik! The self-described ethnic design label presents to you the maiden edition of its annual Valentine’s Day Collection christened “My Ethnic Valentine“.
The designer, Sophie Ajuonuma describes “My Ethnic Valentine” as refreshing, traditional yet modern and a delight to the eyes. She also added that “ My Valentine collection is an annual event. It is a season for showing love and appreciation to loved ones; it is giving your ‘YOU’ to the one you love by putting on your best outfit and looking great. Beauty is what you see and appreciate. Body language is key.“
In designing the vibrant collection, she took into consideration different shapes and figures. In the process of doing that, she created baby doll dresses, draped skirts, peplum skirts and dresses and under bust shaped dresses that flatter the female shape. She also included chiffon maxi skirts, flowing dresses, blouses etc, for those who prefer a more graceful and elegant silhouette.
The male designs completely compliment their female counterparts in color and pattern accentuating the union in her design and the story she tell through them.
