Zapel
Say hello to luxury in Chioma Ebubedike Igbokwe of Zapel’s world of fashion.

Also one of the top 16 finalists, the fashion brand debuted modern and bold prints on dresses, shorts, tunics and more. It had a strong sport luxe vibe that we liked very much. The pieces look comfortable and cool, and the fluffy headphones gave the entire collection a dainty feel.

    Love the first collection, a lot actually! Papa omisore’s kaftans are also refreshingly androgynous. Would look great on women too.
