My Favorite Nigerian Fashion Designers + Brands: Pt.1Sunday, 29 May 2016
If you have been reading my blog for a while now you should know I am Nigerian. I love to use this platform to highlight the beauty my country produces and bring awareness to what Nigeria has to offer. This post is dedicated to the innovative fashion scene in Nigeria. I have complied a list of my favorite Nigerian designers and brands at the moment. It is a bit odd to take pride in someone else’s work and creativity but when I see fellow Nigerians doing great things and becoming successful, I am filled with so much joy. So sit back, relax and enjoy this post of Nigerian art in the form of clothing.
House Of Deola
I remember when this new collection was released earlier this year and through out my Instagram feed were reposts of Deola Sagoe’s designs. I joined the bandwagon and also reposted one of my favorites, the LOUISA dress (image below). I love how much attention to detail this collection has. The use of bold and pastel colors bring the fabrics to life as well as the intricate cutouts on the fabric, which form abstract floral patterns. Gorgeous!

Wana Sambo is amazing at mastering the fit. Each design is made to fit the client perfectly. The pictures above are evidence of that. I love the elegance of each look and the simplicity of each design. My personal style motto is ‘keep it simple’ and this brand always finds a way to produce simple cuts, colors, shapes and make it extraordinary. I also love how Wana Sambo uses bloggers and influencers to model some of their pieces. What a great combination!
