It’s Friday, spring has sprung and this weekend is all about celebrating the new season through the best fashion looks. It’s time to swap the wintery look for brighter colours and bolder prints. Here are three Nigerian designers you should check out to perfect your spring look this weekend!
Our favourite fashion muse, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, recently graced the covers of Marie Claire Brazil wearing a stunning dress blouse by Nigerian designer Kiki Kamanu. If you’re looking to add some new pieces to your spring wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with Kamanu’s designs – the cuts are flattering and celebrate femininity, her colour choices are bold and her style is youthful yet elegant. In other words, her clothes embody the right spirit for the season.
There’s a good reason Nigerian designer Ifeyinwa Azubike calls herself “The Ladymaker” – even the scruffiest of tomboys will transform into a real lady in one of her stunning garments. Known for her incredible eye for colour and pattern-detail – ranging from floral to traditional African symbolism – The Ladymaker brings a sense of casual glamour to everything she makes. Celebrate the spring season like a fashion queen in one of her beautiful designs.
If you’re not feeling bright and funky in terms of colours, you can always pay tribute to spring by embracing black and white contrasts – a timeless look that fits all seasons. And that’s exactly what Nola Black is all about. The core of this Nigerian brand and its aesthetics “transcends into every aspect and association and emphasizes harmony, counter-balance and duality in a dynamic system.”
