Renowned Nigerian designer Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi did not fail to impress at this year’s Arise Magazine Fashion Week. Her “Oriental Classics”collection included elegant head- turning pieces that graced the runway.
Here is the official description of the collection.
This collection is an eclectic mix of creations that consists of the perfect red carpet collection. LDA has ticked the glam box with aplomb and is showcasing ethereal and glamorous pieces in colours such as green, black, grey, gold and red all gliding down the catwalk in a mixture of the brand’s signature old vintage style, pieces that have been carefully handmade to suit the mood; crystal-embellished hems dripped, tops and dresses made out of pure Oriental silks and silk brocade.
Jackets, skirt and trousers made out of the brand’s love for lace and here are also hints of the 1920s flapper style in dresses and skirts, a reminiscence of Chanel’s early days shown in richly this textured collection that have been exquisitely adapted to suit today’s upwardly mobile African woman that yearns for timeless pieces she can wear for decades hence pieces vary in lengths from short and midi to long. The level of imagination and intricacy between pieces vary, creating a clear pecking order of the masterpieces shown here that is every inch worth the price tag.
For this collection the designer believes “more is more” and has pieces for every woman; young and old. There’s no doubt that it is for a confident fashion forward woman that appreciates true creativity and beauty.
