From the word go, Bridget Awosika was never one of those Nigerian designers who felt the need to wax on and on about African prints to authenticate their claim in the African fashion industry. Awosika’s brand was one of the first truly international brands we saw emerge from the new crop of young Nigerian designers.

Her design aesthetic is clearly geared at the young, fashion-forward, African woman who views herself correctly as a global citizen. Bridget Awosika’s designs and execution is easily world-class. She’s living proof of the fact that African designers are just as good as their European and American counterparts.

Bridget Awosika discovered her love for fashion and design at the early in life and chased her dreams all the way to Parsons School of Design, before working as an intern at Donna Karen and then Giorgio Armani. After a year at Armani, Bridget decided to start her own line and the mastery of fabrics and design exhibited at these two fashion power houses is evident in her impeccable work.

Her SS15 collection , which we were privileged to watch grace the runway at #GTBLFDW2014 was strong, modern, classy, edgy and stylish as are all her collections. What won us over, asides the clever styling of the individual pieces was her attention to detail.  Bridget gave us exactly what we come to fashion week for; beautiful clothes, decadent fabrics , with breathtaking detail and superb styling.

Frankly, if for nothing else, we’d kill to get into one of Bridget’s designs for how badass they’d make us look. Think Wonderwoman but with better clothes.

      Haha we kept hoping for a long time, before deciding to start saving up for one. You should try that method, and before you know it there’ll be a piece hanging in your closet :)
