While we’re thinking about ‘Flower Power’ this month, Nigerian designer Deola Sagoe has been busy using it as the backdrop to the lookbook for her Spring/Summer’15 collection, “Wings.”
Shot by Lakin Ogunbanwo against green fauna with fluffy flowers, the range is fronted by former Miss South Africa (2007), Tansey Sodeinde and model/presenter Zainab Balogun, who are spied wearing delicately shaped gowns with Deola’s signature quirky cut-outs – all inspired by a class project belonging to her youngest daughter.
The talent explained that;
“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.“
