This collection was inspired by a striking young lady in red that struck an unforgettable impression on designer and Creative Director of name sake brand Aisha Abubakar at a cocktail party.

Aptly called Rouge, the collection marries the designer’s long time love for red, her memories of sunsets and bonfires experienced on her many trips to Seychelles, the Caribbean, and the inspiring awe that was provoked by the girl in red to create a collection solely anchored on red – her favorite colour.

Intricate beading – using pearls, crystal beads – and embroideries carefully and generously hand stitched on luxurious fabrics, such as; silks, Crepe De Chine and Duchess Satin with accents of oriental influences inspired by some of the designers Eastern travels; all come together to create an un-apologetically feminine collection for the contemporary woman who’s not afraid of provoking a sartorial statement while looking and feeling her best.

    Why use a Red background to showcase a RED COLLECTION, we can hardly see the difference between the clothes and the background. And our ALMIGHTY RICHARD AKUSON is involved in the styling of this collection?????? Then what do I know????? WAITING FOR HIM IN COLLECTION CONVO. FAILED EXECUTION if you ask me!!!

    I have been screaming it, richard akuson doesnt know anything about fashion.he shouldnt be in the fashion industry he has no taste or style.just look at how he messed this collection up. red clothes red background.

    he is just well connected. he has lots of connection in naija fashion industry. he knows nothing about fashion.

    thats the problem with nigeria. they will not employ someone who knows the craft instead they will be hiring their friends and neices and nephews and people who they are having sex with. smh

    this is fashion, if u like use all the connections u have to get to the top, ur lack of fashion knowledge will always show. same thing with being a musician or an actor. ur lack of talent will always show.

      Me too, i actually think the background ‘fits’ in an odd sorta way. It is a beautiful collection, with nicely tailored wearable pieces.
      The female model is GORGEOUS.

    NICE.

    First collection I’ve ever said that for on BN.

    She did well.

    Room for improvement: please, Nigerian designers, end this use of ONE pair of shoes with every piece in your entire collection. Secondly, the way you go all out on your designs is the way should go all out on the different shoes. This seeming idea of plain shoes work with all things is nonsense! You put so much detailing, beading, work on a piece and then think that the best thing for it is some plain footwear? No! Sometimes, one needs to downplay or mute accessories when wearing statement pieces but only sometimes! If you’re bringing clothes game, then bring your shoe game too! Beyonce wears all sorts of beaded, detailed, , bejeweled, shiny, heavily-accessorised pieces (leotards) with a lot of work on them and her shoes continue/complete the story.

    I was wondering if it was the shoes that were wrong or the long dresses that were too short and needed about two inches more, I was wondering, until I saw the photos of the knee-length dresses and the three-quarter trousers. The shoes work well with those. The only long dresses the shoes work with is the sleeveless one with pockets and the band of beading and work across the knees, and the ‘cold shoulder’ one with embroidery work/flowers on the long torso and the chiffon floor-length skirt. The length in the chiffon skirt is what some of the other long dresses are missing, one or two are only missing shoes with more pizzazz, some are missing both.

    And yes, the clothes needed more help with the styling of the shoot; props, decor, etc were needed. One Lebanese designer could have put out these same designs and they would,be unrecognisable simply because of the lighting, styling, props and decor.

    Somehow somehow the background actually worked for me. It projected this calming aura when scrolling down. Not a big fan of red but they actually got me picking out at least 3 items i’d love to try out.

    The background doesn’t work. We don’t get to appreciate these clothes and some of the details in them cause the background and the clothes are pretty much the same. Poor work on the part of the creative director of the shoot.
