Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi christened her new collection – “The Modern Age“, the runway presentation took place on Saturday 12th March 2011 at the 2011 ARISE Magazine Fashion Week.
The collection began with monochrome pieces with dazzling standouts such as a sequined jacket which was paired with a 50s inspired prom dress. The collection transitioned to introduce even more shimmer and pieces which featured innovative fabric pairings – embellished brocade, a melange of lace and handpainted silk. Our favourite looks from the collection were the final two which were modelled by Millen and Agbani. Floor-length dresses in handpainted silk ‘goodness’ juxtaposed with sequins and lace respectively.
As one guest proclaimed after the show, “LDA has transitioned to the next level”. We agree.
