Rising Fashion label Sevon Dejana presents its Risqué “De Dix-Sept” Debut Collection!



Sevon Dejana De Dix Sept Colletion Lookbook - Bellanaija - September002

Here’s an unusual collection for you! From rising Nigerian fashion label, Sevon Dejana by Sevon Edikan Dejana, we present their debut collection – “De Dix-Sept” for 2015.

According to the brand, the collection, which translates as “17” in French, draws its inspiration from the growing strength of women. They stated – “Over the years, things have changed and women now have a strong voice. There’s equality between both sexes, thanks to 17 influential women who have fought for their rights. Women like Joan of Arc, Lady Diana, Princess of Wales, Cleopatra, Anne Boleyn, Marie Curie, Virginia Wolf, Mother Teresa, Edith Piaf, Indira Gandhi, Sophie Scholl, Eva Peron, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Benazir Bhutto, Queen Victoria of England, Celia Sanchez and Lakshmi Sehgal.”

The capsule collection’s pieces are very much like these women – daring. It has pieces ranging from dresses with risque sheer inserts, sheer paneling, leather cropped tops and more.

View the collection below:

      @t let just keep it all the way real!!! These so called designers do not measure up to the Europeans. Do you know why? The European designers are passionate about their craft. Look at the likes of Karl lagerfeld, missoni, vivien westwood, Vera wang and my new favorite desingner Jason Wu; they live, breath and eat fashion. It is not a hustle for them hence they are not gimmicks or fillowers. They set the trends. There is no way you can call this fashion. I have seen much better design from the first year students at my university.

      What do u do honey? You seem pretty jobless to me. Cos if u had a life, a job or atleast a passion to channel all your ‘negative’ energy to you’d probably understand how to appreciate people’s hardwork and efforts. Nonsense.

      Madam European lover, it is low class people like u dat act all high n mighty meanwhile they r NOTHING. If Nigerian designers r so bad, Michelle Obama, Kelly Rowland, Beyonce and others will not have been spotted rocking their creations.

      Ur case is a classic example of ‘Mgbeke feeling funky’.

    Sorry, but the fabrics look cheap. The designs are also a poor imitation of internationally acclaimed fashion designers. At least April by Kunbi does a good job copying/interpreting designers such as Ellie saab etc….

    I like a lot, but she needs to work on her finishing, and buy a steamer. The black lace number is really pretty.

    Wait wait wait this person thought to himself that any of these pieces could be associated with the classy Marilyn Monroe, princess Diana, and queen Victoria!!!! I have given up on some people In Nigeria.
    Thank you for advertising your lack of imagination and ability to translate personality into dresses and your tackiness. I will not mistakenly patronise you.
    Thank you for letting me know that you will most definitely disappoint me and misconstrue whatever I mistakenly order from you.

    Thank you!

    Hmmm…. So, not even one Nigerian or African woman inspired this ignoramus? African history has no women who have given women voice? If Queen Victoria in all her matronly glory can be on this dubious list, then so can Fela’s fiery mummy, Amina from Zaria,, Emotan from Benin, Queen Nerfertari/Nefertiti who was way more beautiful than the Greek woman, Cleopatra (whom many think was Egyptian.), Shaka’s mummy, Janet Mokelu, Flora Nwapa, Buchi Emecheta, Oyibo Odinamadu, Margaret Ekpo, Bessie Head, Ama Ata Aidoo, Ellen Sirleaf….What about those women in Oloko/Owerri area in the old Southern Protectorate who told the British DO to stick it where the sun don’t shine when someone was sent to count them and their possessions for the purpose of taxation? “Have you counted your own mother?” the enumerator was asked. Now, that’s voice…..I’m probably missing a hundred others.

    Everyone’s comment is their comment and should be respected as such. It’s no use scoffing and turning this platform into a verbal boxing ring. Civility should be the watchword here.
