Rising womenswear designer Yemisi Olaiya has released a new collection for her UK based contemporary brand Semande titled Nature’s Woman.
The brand is rooted in African culture and heritage aiming to create a strong but minimalistic fashion aesthetic which adds value to the ideal woman.
This new collection is inspired by the beauty of nature; the flow and energy it creates and the fusion of elements to create nature’s balance.
Yemisi used carefully sourced vibrant prints and delicate fabrics including silk organza, crepe, crepe-de-chine and scuba jersey to create fluid silhouettes that seamlessly respond to the movement of the body.
The introduction of tassels and ruffles at strategic points on each piece gives a robust feel of movement synonymous with the culture and heritage of the Badagry people in Nigeria.
