Ace Nigerian fashion designer, Deola Sagoe has recently released a collection that illustrates the beauty of traditional weddings in Nigeria.
The collection tagged, the Komole Tropical Galactica SS20 01 Surreal is a blend of posh, elegant and trendy outfits any bride or lady can rock to a traditional occasion.
According to the creative director, Teni Sagoe:
DEOLA brings to you her very own Tropical Rainforest from the heart of Africa. But this time with a curiously striking infusion of the Outer-Space. 01 SURREAL is like a huge drop of the African Rainforest bursting with supernatural energy, gloriously crafted silhouettes and a wild foray of riveting colours. Through her eyes we see the glorious home to vain pit vipers, boa constrictors, birds of paradise and freckled orchids become riddled with the enigma of some extraterrestrial super-beings who may or may not be on a mission to visit the lost Garden of Eden.
Traditional Yoruba dress takes on yet another spin with the unlikely introduction of strikingly futuristic colour blocking accents, layered forms and expertly sculpted newage silhouettes. It is remarkable from conception to execution; the constructions of the garments riddled with the lavish tones in which they are brought to life in, possess the true heartbeat of the Tropical Rainforest.
