Here is a quick chat with VIRGOS LOUNGE, the fashion brand that is currently creating fashion waves in UK and America and Nigeria alike – Angela Simmons wore their one shouldered silver jumpsuit to NYFW in September. For the biggest party season of the year, the brand has just launched a 12 piece Carnival themed party collection. The collection consists of dresses in minis and maxis and separates of tops, skirts and leggings, all in sumptuous jewel toned fabrics with the right amount of fringe, sequined and beaded detailing. There is a clear influence of the 20s in the details (fringe, scalloped edges and beads) and the 60s (mini) and 70s (maxi) in the structure and the 80s in the use of bright colours all mixed together with a very very modern twist. Read about what inspired this particular collection.
What inspired the name “Virgos Lounge”?
All three founders of Virgos Lounge share the Virgo zodiac sign, and that was one unique thing we all had in common so it had to be in the name. The lounge bit just worked well with it.
Who is the ideal Virgos Lounge customer?
There really isn’t one ideal type but one thing we can say is that she is someone who is after something a little bit different.
Was putting together the party collection difficult?
It was a little bit in terms of making it as cohesive as possible. We were going wild with the Carnival theme at first but we had to bring it back a bit to make it a tad cohesive.
I noticed the use of colours and jewel tones for this collection. What inspired this?
We were inspired by carnivals for this collection. The exotic colours, the fringe beading, the metallic embellishments, I mean nothing says party better than a carnival!
What makes this particular collection different?
It has the vintage inspired element, which is the foundation of our brand, but this particular collection has a wider appeal. We had separates for the first time (we even had leggings!). We really just tried to up the vintage meets modern aesthetic with this collection.
