Have a Vibrant Summer with Akpos Okudu’s Back to Basics Collection



Akpos Okudu‘s Back to Basics collection has all the ankara pieces you need to make a statement this summer while repping the buy Nigerian movement. Before the use of fabrics like crepe, neoprene or jersey, ankara was what we knew and with this collection, she reminds us of that. Our industry’s days of humble beginnings.

It’s a capsule collection for African Fashion Week London. The entire collection consists of simple basics in ankara. The entire collection will be on display at their booth at the African Fashion Week London event.

    Creativity wise, I don’t see anything new, however, I’m not mad. I’ll wear every single piece. The fabrics are gorgeous, the colors popping and I quite like the fit (on the model, with the exception of one tight me, I tight you ?).

    Akpos, hopefully this your back-to-basic line is affordable. It’s great for the summer in the abroad, and even better in naija.

    the cuts are nice. the fabric looks cheap. she should use vlisco or design her own. this one is straight from market. the designs though pretty are not original either so these are things we can all just get made by a tailor. so if she is a designer she needs to originate something.
