Upcoming Designers Set To Take The Scene In 2016
As 2016 starts, we can’t help but think of the upcoming designers that made a lasting impression in 2015. These upcoming designers should be on your shopping list for the year with their beautiful pieces.
Jason Samuel is the brain behind the Jason Porsche brand, a Nigerian luxury bespoke fashion design label “Jason Porshe” is a brand which solely focuses on bespoke tailoring, Established in 2012, the Jason Porshe Brand has been linked with celebrities like Korede Bello, Yemi Alade, Praiz, Eva Alordiah, Uti Nwachukwu, Gbenro Ajibade, Denrele Edun & a lot more.
House Of Dabira
Folu Ajayi made a very ‘colourful’ first impression on us with the outfit she designed for Dakore Akande which she wore to the 2015 African Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA). The 21 year old won the Zinkata Red Carpet Challenge. She has this year to prove if she would be a household name or not.
Papa Oyeyemi of Maxivive, showed some interesting pieces during LFDW, with traditional pieces in ‘agbada’ to more designed cuts to its rainy collection like cellophane pants and top. His pieces have been making rounds in the fashion industry in all their eccentricity and we hope this year shows more from the brand.
At Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2016, Titi Bello showcased her Spring/ Summer 2016 collection. The collection features thigh-high split skirts, cropped tops, mini-dresses, playsuits and more in the softest hues. We feel Titilayo Shotile-Belo has finally gotten her tone, she has created the edgy, eccentric and sexy woman.
House of Kaya
The hijabs, flowing gowns and detailed embroidery. House of Kaya collection was a nice change on the LFDW runway as the brand showcased stylish pieces ideal for a more modest crowd. We can’t wait to see what 2016 holds.
Victoria Ogwanighie made a lovely impression in neutral colours, pastels, fascinators and gloves during LFDW. Vedel has pieces every woman love to own individually and collectively.
