We love when a collection tells a story and nobody did that better than new comers, Olivia and Sylvia of Gozel Green, who wowed us with their Broken Pots And Other Stories collection. In our exclusive #BackstageStories interview with the lovely twins, they revealed the touching story behind the delectable collection. Inspired by their arty father, of late memory, the collection served individuality, artistry and an innovative use of prints and colours all in one gorgeous swoop. We’re calling them our #FashionFocusFavourites
T.I. Nathan exemplifies the new definition of cool. Proving that African, and indeed Lagosian fashion is much more than Ankara prints, the brand always serves up awe-inspiring collections that are just what the doctor ordered. From the flower chains, to the white mesh shirts, and separates in the gorgeous blue hues, to the cocaine-white lip that had us electrified, everything about the collection screamed “fresh”.
Sisiano is a genius with threads. He always brings something interesting to the runway, this collection is a celebration of femininity, elegance and grace. We loved the movement of the fabrics and we applaud him for creating a collection that looks as comfortable as it is beautiful.
