Womenswear Brand Toyin Bii releases Debut Collection for Spring Summer ’17

Toyin Bii is a brand new luxury contemporary womenswear label owned by Toyin Balogun. The brand’s focus is to make pieces for the stylish and confident woman. Although Toyin Bii is a Nigerian brand it does not limit its themes, it draws inspiration from all over the world in order to cater to a wider audience of stylish and confident women. Each piece is carefully crafted and fabrics are carefully selected, so detail is exceptional. It aims to ensure excellent quality and long lasting products for its clients.

Toyin Balogun is a self-taught Nigerian designer. She became interested in fashion at an early age and spent most of her childhood drawing/sketching designs. She went on to earn a B.A in Sociology at the University of Essex. However, her love for fashion design did not die while at University because owning a fashion label was always her sole dream. The brand is named after her because it reflects her personal style.

The SS17 debut collection is for the girly but ‘not afraid to be sexy’ woman. It pays attention to some of the season’s trends of ruffles and pleats and uses a Summer colour palette of bright colours. The asymmetrical necklines are key to the collection in order to show off collarbones and shoulders and the slits to show off legs, making the perfect combination of girly and sexy.

    When are these people going to stop using the word luxury.
    If they call themselves luxury what do they want Elie Saab, Alaia, etc to call their works.

    This entire collection can not even match the finnesse of primark yet they will say luxury

    Please my naija people, take brain

    Siju, in this age and time u can only be your own prophet. If the designer calls her brand a luxury brand so be it in her context. The Ellie Saab’s of this world started from somewhere and was not big overnight. What our startups need is encouragement and not lousy opinions like yours! If you have ever started a business from the scratch u won’t be quick to run one down. You are such a rude shallow person even without meeting you.
