share on:

Nirvana, a word from the ancient Sanskrit meaning “to blow out”,
“liberation” or “freedom”. It describes a state of profound peace of
mind and release from suffering.

In this attempt, emerging fashion brand “awe! Lagos” presents a
fashion collection dedicated to the freedom fight of the legendary
Nelson Mandela, it also serves a major transition of the 2 year old
brand in the Nigerian fashion scene.

The creative director of the brand Apooyin Abiola employs zig zag
patterns, vertical lines and print as a medium to tell a story of
freedom creating casual, chick, simple, sporty and minimal ready to
wear fashion pieces.

“The concept behind the collection is to create a fashion collection
that brings about a release from the conventional and rather trite
fashion ensembles into simple and minimal fashion pieces”.
