Designer Ugonna Omeruo is best known for her fierce red carpet style. The designer is regularly spotted on the red carpet and at events looking fabulous (Click to Check Out BN Style Spotlight on Ugonna).
Now Ugonna is shifting the focus away from her personal style to her label – House of Nwocha. The label will be launching their new collection called ZION on Sunday 24th October 2010. The event which is taking place at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in Lagos will include the formal presentation of the collection, unveiling of the Face of HON as well as performances by Waje and M.I.
The collection flows from a more formal aesthetic with long embellished dresses presented in pink with black accents to a younger, flirtier look with a multicolour print fabric morphed into various pieces including a jacket, tailored trousers and a caped floor length dress. According to the designer, “the spring/summer 2011 collection was inspired by an Asian Samurai Painting and has a colour mix of fuchsia pink, royal blue & black. The collection reveals an array of long classic dresses and edgy short pieces with Asian silk fabrics soft in texture and flows in peace like a nile“.
Ugonna describes the new collection as ‘a zionic paradise with a combination of edgy and sexy’.
