We can’t imagine African fashion without Ituen Basi. The eponymous fashion label dates back to 2010, from whence it has built a fashion empire that many have come to learn from.

With a history of debuting at fashion shows like Arise Africa Fashion Week, Lagos Fashion & Design Week and more, dressing some of the biggest names in the fashion & entertainment industry, showcasing collections that have helped pave the way for African fashion and a long list of other endeavors, Ituen basi is arguably one of the biggest fashion brands in Africa.

A few days ago, Nigerian stylist, Ezinne Chinkata rocked pieces from the fashion brand’s 2015 collection which was debuted at the MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week, and we loved her look. She paired 2 pieces from the Ituen Basi collection – a printed blazer and skirt for Elohor Aisien‘s Hawaiian themed bridal shower (See photos here if you missed it).

She paired her outfit with brown lace-up gladiators, a print bralet and chunky beads.

Her outfit was so fun and very appropriate for the event. See more images from the bridal shower here.

    Nice individual pieces, but Zinkata’s styling looks off to me. Too much going on.

    I don’t know if you post but my honest take on Ezinne is this, we as stylist learn to play up our strong points, this Ezinne truly lacks. She has a manly bod which in itself is not bad.,,,,, however she needs to tone it down. With such strong features play up your best sides. She made this outfit look terrible whereas on the model, it looks gorgeous

    You mean Elohor’s baby shower?
    I would like to see Ezinne done up by a professional makeup artist.

    Ezinne needs to get the right foundation for her skin type. Her face is always looking oily and covered in sweats…….not cool, especially if your plan is to share the photos with the public. At least dab off the oil and sweat.
