Lanre Da Silva Ajayi at Couture Fashion Week

Manhattan has become the playground for Nigerian designers. Building on the momentum from the ARISE Promise Collective, designers Lanre Da Silva-Ajayi, House of J’Ola, Hallero and Zizi presented at the Couture Fashion Week event held at the Waldorf=Astoria this past Sunday. As a group, their collections were awe-inspiring and focused on luxury and haute couture.

Da Silva-Ajayi’s collection exhibits an eclectic fusion of art and history with many nostalgic elements reminiscent of the 1940s, 50s and 60s, yet silmultaneously modern and appealing to today’s contemporary woman.
