‘Rouge’ lights up the runway in Joburg
The future of Nigerian fashion is incredibly bright.
That belief is strongly reinforced when we spot such promising talent as Chichi Iyiegbuniwe of Rouge Couture.
This recent graduate of Urban & Regional Planning from the University of Lagos has already had her first taste of the international runway spotlight.
In only her 2nd ever major runway show, Delta State native Chichi held her own as part of the Nigerian Fashion Showcase during the 2009 Audi Johannesburg Week Autumn/Winter Fashion Week.
The Rouge Couture collection displayed a rousing blend of pieces with the uber creative use of fabric including Damask and Adire. Colour also played a prominent role in this collection as brights including orange, pink, green and blue were put to great use. Definaitely a stellar debut!
