Inspired by Nigeria’s rich historic past, fashion brand Twenty Six just released a body positive collection of full print skirts in different lengths and sizes that speaks to a vast variety of women of different body sizes and types. Speaking on the inspiration behind the collection and look book, the brand had this to say:
We at TwentySix are inspired by our history and so when we had the opportunity to shoot our newest look book at a treasure trove of this history, we grabbed it up as fast as we could. Our prints have characters: sassy, bold, swanky, quirky – and so we wanted our location to be one that held as much character as our prints. We found it in The Jaekel House Museum in Nigerian Railway Corporation Compound.
