2012 Arise Magazine Fashion Week: House of Silk



Designer Jennifer Adighije‘s fashion label House of Silk made its Arise Magazine Fashion Week debut on Saturday. How did the brand fare on the big stage? You decide.

House of Silk flourished especially with their signature flowy pieces, our fave was the shimmery animal print finale dress.

    How come the designer’s outfit when she came onstage seems to be the best out of all the pics? Hmmm,….

    I LOOOVE that her designs are very eclectic. I adore the fabrics. Nicely cut out pieces and absolutely wearable.

    The sequined dress with the cape, and the pink fluff (almost like wearing cotton candy) are my favs…

    Gorgeous designs. The collection does lack cohesiveness. I see a bit of spring, a little couture, and some fall looks all in one collection. She may have had a lot of ideas she wanted to execute all at once probably. Besides that, I love her designs. Really brilliant and original

    Buahahahahaha. Once I saw the first picture with a bathing suit, right? I knew it was downhill from there. The bottom is so ill fitting, it makes the model look like she’s wearing a nappy. The few decent pieces may as well be ready to wear purchased somewhere else. Wharamess!

    I can see she put a lot of effort into this, I like the over all feel, though I’m not too sure about the billowing fabric on some of the dresses… All the same, good job!

    tHe sequin dress with the cape is breadthtaking the model looks like a candy I love it meeehhn some of the others I would not mind having I like the fact that she still kept an african touch in some of the dresses not going overly western with funny cuts and wierd designs these are nice comfotable and weareable. She did a good job. t

    Its good to leave constructive feedback that builds and doesn’t tear someone down. I praise most of our fashion designers for producing what they do without core fashion design education. A compariosn with establised formally trained designers who are fortunate to live in socities where creativity and artistic individuality is encouraged from childhood through to adulthood- is high praise indeed for our designers who exsist in a space where this isn’t the case. Theme or not, this shows growth- that’s only come from experience.
