I don’t know how I feel about Ejiro’s collection. On one hand, I love the richness of fabrics and illustriousness of most pieces. On the other, I lack the excitement that’s present whenever a collection deeply strikes me. Maybe its the absence of elements that we have so long associated with her. What happened to the prints we so loved and the oleku wrapped dresses that became one of our favorites, where are those dresses that graced the runways like cool morning breeze?
But then, under this canopy of indecisiveness and lack of excitement lies the realization that change is constant. I’ve always had a thing for Ejiro’s work, from the moment she stepped into the limelight, you’d catch me swooning over everything she makes, but even as I tried focusing on the best parts of her 2015 resort, I found myself neck deep in nostalgia. Still, this collection maintains the Ejiro Amos Tafiri element of elegance and laid-back class, one every Nigerian woman would love.
The Madame,which is what Ejiro named the collection, is inspired by a lady on vacation attending an extravagant luxury party draped against night skies, one who’s aesthetic is that of opulence and grandeur.
