BN Style kicked off 2011 with a special feature on the “11 Young, Fabulous & Talented Designers to Watch in 2011″ – Click to Read.
Starting things off with that feature was no accident.
One of BellaNaija’s major goals for 2011 is to promote the next generation of talent across all fields – from fashion to music, movies, science, entrepreneurship and everything in between.
The BN Style team is pushing forward with this mandate, this week, we will be celebrating the “BN Emerging Fashion Talent Week“.
Everyday of the week, we will feature a lookbook from a promising design label. Some were included in our “11 for 2011″ list and some were not, however they are all immensely talented and breaking boundaries in their own unique ways.
For Day 4 of our BN Emerging Fashion Talent Week, we have selected upcoming fashion label, SALLY BAWA.
Sally Bawa emerged on the scene in 2009, however, it was at the 2011 Future Awards that everyone stood up and noticed when the fashion label dressed various celebrities including superstar actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde.
The Sally Bawa vision is one that was conceived 10 years ago on a cloudy dreamy day amidst the hubbub of the busy Lagos metropolis. It still is a work in progress. The idea has evolved over time and today, the label offers pieces from two distinct lines; the Ready to Wear and Exclusive Lines. Sally Bawa tells is that the “Sally Bawa Approach” is different, the clothes are reasonably priced and Sally Bawa “offers our clients total participation in the design process. We make clothes by us, for you“.
