Lookbook: IAMISIGO’s A/W’15 “East of West” Collection

Following a successful showroom launch this week (read about that here), Nigerian designer and top stylist Bubu Ogisi has just released the lookbook to her brand, IAMISIGO’s Autumn/Winter’15 collection, titled “East of West.”

The range, which made its debut on the ramp at South Africa Fashion Week in Durban in May, is said to be inspired by the designer’s youth and the film Calamity Jane – a Western from the ’50s wherein the star (played by Doris Day) goes from tomboyhood to become a lady in love.

The source of inspiration would explain the shapes in the range (wide, bowing legs and boxy shapes) as well as the pieces included – trousers that flare put with shirts and tops with long sleeves, contrasted with long skirts and figure-hugging dresses, all in a palette of blue, black, white, grey and yellow.


But while the androgyny of the collection is cool and eye-catching on model Nadine O, it’s the textures that really make it, with girly-girl ruffles and crochet making up most of the lineup, falling the entire way down the legs of trousers or the length of a dress, or at their slightest, lining the pockets of a shirt.

A striking range from a superior talent, Bubu Ogisi’s “East of West” Autumn/Winter’15 collection is here below – take a look and tell us you love it too.
