      AWFUL. Only the model with the bangs is remotely decent.

  • Alero September 29, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    i am so loving this. But the jackets look too big for the models.

  • Uchechi September 29, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    Nice and cheerful, but the labels are too obvious on the male shirt and blazers. Well done!

  • Lady G September 29, 2011 at 2:28 pm

    how many fashion designers will naija churn – bleeding parasites – follow follow – i must do too is killing naija – jheeeze – we should be focusing on nurses, doctors, farmers, scienists, inventors, it, planning and development strategist, etc… everyone na PR, HRM, Marketing, Fashion, Music, Modelling –anything that is ‘reigning’ so as to becom part of the Youths Who Don Chop Association.. they will be doing.. I have little hope 4 naija if its based on the current trends of artificialness and materialism – we are looking worse than our predecessors

    • mopile October 1, 2011 at 8:33 pm

      kunbs darling u dont have to be so bitter……u can decide to be a doctor, nurse if u want.

      no one will stop you….pls dont pass your frustration on creative ple

  • cough cough September 30, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    off.. like totally off.. dont get it at all..
    not an inch of originality..
    thumbs up for the effort though

  • AJCiti September 30, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    Nothing special, I’ve seen things like this before. I like the purple polo but why would I buy a polo from them when I could just buy a Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, or Tommy polo? They need to come from a more unique angle because none of the peices in the collection are that special. Good effort though.

  • Youngmoney3000 October 2, 2011 at 5:31 am

    The models are way too skinny clothes don’t even look nice on them and who rolls up a blazer like that….. Dem for put fine models with better shape at least the clothes for look better na wa ooo

  • Jasmine Jazz October 2, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    I like black shiny tight and boy’s last upper. Thanks for sharing it, nice work.

  • heiress October 4, 2011 at 2:27 am

    First I’ll start off by saying the girl with the bangs ‘ewww’ and this is what we see everyday,so the ‘wow factor’ ain’t there

  • Peperempe October 4, 2011 at 10:47 am

    As in!!! What’s all this about? So if we just stick huge badges on ill-fitting sacks we can say we are designers too?
