According to Deola Sagoe, “Developing my own fabrics is essential for me. Every time you do it, it’s fresh; the drawings, the process of making Adire, starting with indigo and then just making music with colour and patterns, “fabric jazz”.
I wanted to play with floaty fabrics this time. It was just my mood. Of course I’m still in the throws of my love affair with Aso Oke which is still a huge feature in this collection.“
“Wings by Deola” consists of 37 pieces whose names were derived from the characters in Shakespeare’s plays such as, Ophelia (the helper), Valeria (strong, valiant) and Juno (protector). The collection for Spring/Summer 2015 features detailed cut-outs, sheer fabric inserts, plunging necklines and more tying into the origami-theme.
