Young Nigerian designer and owner of Mademoiselle Aglaia, Mariam Afolabi just released a new ready-to-wear collection called FRIDA.
The collection was inspired by one of Mexico’s greatest icons, Frida Kahlo, a female Artist who was known for her influence in arts. She was well known for her unique fashion style as was displayed in her self-portraits.
The retro collection displays an artistic array of colours and well defined cuts.
“This collection evolved from not just gaining inspiration from Frida but also the Italian culture, their dancers and the famous matadors. The headpieces and flower print fabrics used represent Frida’s look and fashion style. The consistent use of red is also a way of emphasisng the inspiration from a rose and the colour used mostly by the Italian flamenco dancers” – Mariam Afolabi.
The collection is a vibrant mix of personalities, playful yet sexy and sometimes serious, just the way we are as humans.
