Aso-Oke takes a new turn. Absolutely loving this innovative Resort collection from Ejiro Amos-Tafiri who successfully turns traditional woven Nigerian fabric Aso-oke into wearable art. Ejiro Amos-Tafiri would be showing at the GTBLagos Fashion and Design Week on Friday, 25th of October 2013 at 5:40pm. This is definitely one to see.
Ejiro Amos Tafiri, a design label known for its signature draping which is famous for accentuating the curves on every woman introduces its Resort 2014 collection themed “Donna of the West”.
The brand’s creative director; Ejiro Amos Tafiri, stirred the brand in a new direction infusing a bit of edginess yet softening that with hints of drapery- retaining the brand’s signature aesthetics of seamless fluidity.
In continuance with our Nigerian cultural inspiration from the last three collections, this collection is inspired by Yoruba culture. Its royalty, the dress forms of iro & buba & sokoto, indigenous fabrics of Aso-oke, Oja, Adire and their favourite acquired fabric of choice, lace. And the Lagos architectural landscape influences the cuts on the garments.
The collection features a variety of rich colours such as: gold, burgundy, green, navy blue, silver and white. The new collection is aimed at the confident, self assured woman who is not afraid to take her style outside of the norms and take risks.
Sample pieces can be found at The Fashion Portal showroom at No.5 Ribadu road, off Awolowo way Ikoyi.
