IAmIsigo East of West Collection Lookbook - Bellanaija - July2015001 (59)

Hey fashion lovers – we are here with a brand new collection from Nigerian womenswear brand iamISIGO by Bubu Ogisi. Titled “East of West“, the Autumn/Winter 2015 collection was first showcased at the South African Fashion Week, Durban in May and now you get to see all the fab pieces here.

The collection is a mix of various colours from white & black, to grey & silver and some shades of yellow and gold on silk, crepe de chine, cotton-poly blend, light tweeds, cotton twine, polyamide twine and mohair wool.

Each piece has a strong western theme with fringed hems, lapels and boxy cuts. The collection also embraces the ‘feminine’ art of crochet on flared pants. jackets, dresses with traditional dolly patterns exaggerated for effect. We posted a photo on our Instagram page with OAP Fade Ogunro rocking the last top in the lookbook sequence, and there were mixed reactions. So, take a look at the full collection and tell us what you think.

See the collection below;

    Oh boy! If this is what being fashion forward looks like, I want no part in it. What is with the “igbabonelinmhin” costume? B*tch stole my village masquerade’s look.

    I completely love where the designer is going with this however most of it is not ready to wear which is unfortunate. I see so much potential in some of the pieces.

    I HATE IT.

    I hate all of it. pls burn these clothes, my lord and my God (mariah Carey voice)

    tontoh dikeh pls come and help us set these terrible “VULGAR” clothes on fire.

    I have never in life given a fashion designer an F before,there’s a first time for everything.

    bubu ogusi, u should be in prison for making such terrible clothes like these one’s I am seeing right now.

    these clothes hurts both my two eyes and my heart.

    bubu ogisi u are a very dangerous person. U are the reason eku is always a scary mess on the red carpet. eku has worn one the “trousers” before.

    make it stop.

      Geez hyperbole much, take it easy. Why does everyone think to critic fashion they must crank up nastiness to dial 11.

    I think bubu is channeling the international market here. I know some edgy naijas that can where this too. If she wants to design something for d Nigerian market I know she can pull it off too. Give her a break. She’s gifted. U shud search for her other collections. From d collection its autumn/winter. I guess we don’t have that here so wait till she does something for d Nigerian weather eg hamathern collection

    lol bruno thanks for your unsolicited opinion.
    the clothes are definitely interesting the pieces may not all be ready to wear but think about the thought of it and the design most of these are made from crocheting and knitting especially if they are hand made that is a lot of skill, precision and effort.

    Everyone aesthetic is different, but I think we can appreciate interesting design pieces. I am definitely liking some of the looks.

    If you aint a creative, its advised you be as constructive with your thoughts as possible. The right styling will work with even the sheerest of these pieces & lets stop being so counter-productive here. Pick the one you like and move on; everyone blasted Adebayo Oke-Lawal of Orange Culture but see how far global he has gone & we say we are Nigerians. my point is let us the with reason when making comments on peoples creative work. Im sure you also have a job too even if its not fashion related.
