Salmah Ahmadu Embraces Femininity and Elegance in her New Collection “Nuanced”



Designer, Salmah Ahmadu of Northern Belle  reveals her latest collection titled ‘Nuanced’ which was inspired by her childhood background and her travelings over the years. The collection explores the thematic struggle between the things we learn as children and what we grow up seeing as adults and what we eventually take as our personal beliefs and standards.

The collection entails the classic silhouettes and lightness of evening wear with the use of twists, drapery and layering to create an illusion of the woman’s femininity, elegance and sophistication.

    All these so called Nigerian designers with the likes of LDS and this ones are copy cats. ALL their so called designs are copied from Lebanese designers like Krikor jobitan and others. It’s disgusting how the claim to be what they aren’t. Make una create your own. Stop making people feel you are a designer when u didn’t create the design, phew!!! Bella take note.

    Rita!!!! Thank you madam class monitor!!!! As a designer you can get inspiration from any where! copying and pasting the source she got the inspiration from makes you a small person.
    congratulations salma!!!!

    @ Aisha if you don’t know the rudiments of Fashion and Style, shut your ignorant rhinostrous mouth up! I won’t border exchanging words with you because it’s obvious your sense of reasoning is rather Obtuse!
