Arise: The Show

Duaba Serwa was the first collection to arrest my full attention. The coke-bottle silhouettes coupled with mid-length hemlines were reminiscent of none other than Victoria Beckham. A number of dresses also incorporated beading which I’ll forever be a fan of, however I failed to find consistency in the entire collection with the palette somewhat inconsistent and the varying styles unable to draw a common inspiration.

Regardless, I was definitely a fan, with the monochromatic backless figures scoring top marks.

As I stated in my previous post, the Okunoren twins remain my favourite simply because of the ambiance experienced at the show. Their opening scene featured two women with bowls of what I’d assume were fruits, however upon discussion with my Mum; she said it’d have been wiser for the ladies to come out with bananas and beans as those are representative of twins in Yoruba land. Genius I hear you say, I must agree.

Finally, Jewel by Lisa always gets me. So far, I have failed to criticise anything she does. Not only because I think she’s pure genius, but simply because I’m biased. Her latest collection comprises of a touch of leather adding a bit of an edge to her feminine track record.

Hope you like the pictures, I tried my best!

Sommy, Oby and Rachel. Thank God I found them, otherwise I’d have had absolutely no one!
