Welcome to another edition of the BN Collection to Closet feature! This is one of the places where we show love to African designers, by shining a light on those who #BuyAfrican.
Today, we have a special Throwback edition! As we gear up for the highly anticipated Heineken Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2015, how about we take a peek at last year’s fabulous event.
We will be taking a stroll back in time to the 3rd day of the GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2014 and checking out their red carpet. There we’ll find interior architect, writer and face of Diesel – Isio Wanogho in Nigerian womenswear label, Ayo Van Elmar.
Womenswear brand, Ayo Van Elmar is co-owned by designer, Ayo Elizabeth Olaogun & Elmar Drabek. Launched in May 2011, the fashion brand prides itself in its offerings of Afro-European fusion fashion inspired by the creative director’s cross-cultural experiences.
The fashion brand has showcased across the world, from Vienna & Nigeria to London. And as it grows in the Nigerian fashion industry, it has garnered a list of celebrity clients like Omoni Oboli that love to rock its pieces.
Flashback to last year’s LFDW where the red carpet was filled with fashionable divas and stylish gents. Isio Wanogho rocked an Ayo Van Elmar piece on day 3 of the event and looked bold and beautiful. The piece from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is definitely one of our faves – who can say no to colourful prints?!
Isio paired her dress with brown strappy heels, gold accessories and flowing dark hair. Check her out below;
