Ejeme Iloube, Creative Director of Jini. Her collection intertwined vibrant African textile with urban designs. From the pencil skirt to a flowing black dress, the ready to wear Jini collection at the 2012 Arise Magazine Fashion Week was all about simplicity and vital wardrobe basics.

      I agree, Arise Fashion Week wasnt really a trend setting event which is important if its going to be taken seriously globally.

    am also an upcoming designer, i just feel most designers dese days r lazy, we do not give much thought ,research to the work like we shuld. imagine other professions say medicine 4 example, wen a new cure is 2 b released 2 d public, we all know d amount of work , research, efforts that is put in2 it, bt in fashion 2 become a designer and release a collection , most people do absolutely no research as a result we ve all dis mediocre collectn . as designers we r suppose 2 set d trends, do futuristic styles nt jst make somethings sha n release.

    i hp 2 release ma 1st collection soon, n wen i do i hope it brings smiles 2 all faces, a cure 4 a fashion disease

    just too plain and simple. there’s nothing stylish about this collection.

    stop hating on her. i have seen her previous collection, and some of her works. they were very nice and wearable. she is on the simple side. not everybody has to over do it. so lets encourage her. she’s an upcoming designer. stop the hate

      its not hate, you are called a designer cos you DESIGN clothes……she didnt design any of this stuff. she just copied primark designs. its sooo boring!!

    Simple shouldn’t mean no creativity or design whatsoever. She just gave us a few pieces from every Obioma’s look book out there. Hitting the snooze button.
