GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week – Day 4: Ituen Basi presents ‘Ituen’ Diffusion Line



Ituen-Basi-Day4-GTBank-LFDW-October2014-BellaNaija019Ituen Basi was scheduled to show a day earlier at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa but she had to cancel for some reason so we were really looking forward to seeing her at the GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week.

Ituen Basi used the fashion show to introduce her new diffusion line ‘Ituen’ and we were simply blown away by her creativity.

The Sping/Summer 2015 collection that she showcased basically had three themes – a school theme with all the models wearing glasses and a number of her pieces done with a ruler print, a flower theme with almost all the pieces having flowers on the bright pieces, and a Lagos theme with some of her pieces having the signature yellow Lagos bus, taxis and ‘kekenap’.

An amazing collection!

Check out the full collection below!

    All these designers need to work on their make up and hair style . They can make a big difference in their presentation. I like some of their clothing though and . recognize that their work will improve with time . Having said that, congrats to all of them.

    Nice pieces! and it seems the brief to the models was ‘Smile, relax and have fun on the runway’ (Though not all of them followed the brief sha!)
    I’m not sure I can be most objective when it comes to Ituen Basi though 🙂
    I just love her quirky, creative style.

    But some of this her pieces, NURTW will be shouting “Up Union!!!” at person wey wear them o!

    This is the most creative I’ve seen of all the runway fashion,being a fashion designer isn’t easy because you have to constantly be thinking outside the box and therein lies the importance of talent
    Ituen Bassey’s collection is classy,wearable and timeless

    She got me smiling at the of my favorites for the lfdw, she made the runway lively with her creative pieces, the models being relaxed and fun with the ‘who run the world’ song by Beyonce. Everything was well put together.

    Ituen Basi is one designer that I love viewing her pieces. That said, I expect that if you call yourself a designer you shouldn’t follow but create trends. Cropped tops, billowy skirts etc have been overflogged. We need to see fresh and really creative stuff. I believe I have spoken a lot of people”s minds or am I alone in this????

    this collection is by far the best i have seen in this season. the ruler effect and the general playful nature of each piece. Simply divine. Just had a flash though of the days when loli pop had more colours than the rainbow…lol

    One of the collections that totally wowed me. I want literally everything from ituen basi
