Nigerian fashion brands Odio Mimonet and Orange Culture are currently in Florence, Italy representing Nigeria at the 14th edition Pitti Immagine Trade Show.

The event – which is an exclusive selection of 75 international brands which will present innovative collections with a high stylistic content for Spring/Summer 2015 – will last for 3 days (Tuesday 17th – Friday 20th June 2014) with fabulous fashion collection premieres, capsule collections and special proposals.

Odio Mimonet, owned by Odio Oseni, debuted its Cruise S/S2015 collection titled “Voyage” yesterday Tuesday 17th June 2014 at the Pitti W (Womenswear) showcase.

Taking to their Facebook page, OM described the collection as one that “celebrates the richness of the Nigerian Yoruba culture. The choice of hand dyed prints from Nigeria’s Oshogbo town and stamp prints reminiscent of the old Yoruba Kingdom, creates the perfect medium of expression for fluid silhouettes with a hint of structure, skilfully hand finished with embellished details.

See some behind-the scenes photos of her collection.
