House of Marie Spring Summer 2017 is themed “Our Nigeria” and it reflects on two prominent issues in Nigeria as well as the common act of Nigerians celebrating regardless of circumstances.

House of Marie designed it’s own print as a painting which shines light upon the environmental issues in the Niger Delta. Oil Spills from petroleum operations have slowly poisoned waters and obliterated vegetation and agricultural land. For over twenty five years there has been no concerned and effective effort on the part of the government or oil operators to control this issue.

Another print designed as a painting touches the Girl Child education, socio-cultural patterns, religious misconceptions, poverty, teenage pregnancy and early marriage amongst other factors. House of Marie is creating awareness of the eradication of discrimination against women.

The brand created a print which shows Nigeria as a happy country despite the conflicts we face. The print is a painting of various Nigerian tribes in their cultural attire partying together as one.

    the model is sickening. giving me grace jones realness.

    if u are going to be political with ur designs u dont have to so literal about it. the paintings on the clothes are not well done and that kills this collection.

    the photography and lighting are amazing.

    Now who will do a print “”highlighting”” Habiba Isa’s “”issue””? That girl is still in captivity, surrounded by men old enough to be her father and grandfather, hypnotised, intimidated, her life and that of her father and family threatened, her innocence lost, her hymen ruptured, her virginity lost, defiled and raped first by by the paedophile 64 year old emir, then due to the hue and cry, passed on, to be defiled and raped and ‘married’ some more by the younger paedophile, Jamilu Lawal.

    Where is her own print? Who will make it?

    Who will wear it? Is it Aisha Buhari who was married at 9 years old by a 47 year old Mohammadu Buhari? It is not Salvatore Ferragamo. It does not cost thousands of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars. So …

      It actually does cost thousands of dollars to make prints – don’t be ignorant
