2012 Arise Magazine Fashion Week: Davida



Nigeria’s very own Davida stuns the crowd with bold mixes of textiles. Whoever said unconventional wasn’t trendy? Davida proved otherwise with her daring display in the year’s Arise Magazine Fashion Week.

    No wow factor for me here. Seen most of them before. Wasn’t all bad, but wasn’t great either.

    OK! I love the fabrics and the colour blue she used. I am not a big fan of high collars, they are very 1996 and that s not retro. The dresses are cute not fabulous just cute. And please how far with the golf sticks looking legs some of the models possess, very unflattering…

    She’s an excellent shirt-maker and has made some lovely shirt dresses in the past. Transitioning to outright dresses….I’m not so sure. She had her niche. She should stick to it.

    In the quest for global recognition, I hope Davida doesn’t make a mug of herself. She has done exceptionally well to create a household brand in the rather difficult Nigerian market. Let Arise showcase textiles seperately. Ah, Vlisco. This is your fault o.

    Interesting comments. Fashion keeps evolving and smart designers know how to identify constructive criticisms from baseless ones. Davida makes amazing shirts and doing something different this time around, so cool. Her designs belong on same plane as chanel, prada, Alexandra Mcqueen and the rest of them world’s best. While people are busy making comments that lack any depth or reasons, such as, “not digging these”, or “nope”, or “not at all there”, Davida is soaring. Keep up the excellent work lady and I hope to meet you someday soon.
