Being identified with the top of the best Old fashionista is a source of pride. They are Nigerians not only because they are Nigerians, but also because they have taken Nigerian textiles and made them global.
Lanre Da-Silva Ajayi, one of those great talents, has passed away. A woman whose talent has led to appearances on international runways, in designer boutiques, and in magazines.
Lanre is one of the top creatives in Nigeria that creates amazing styles from African draperies. She is recognized for Metallics fibers and lace, Mid-20th century and Victorian era-inspired style.
We believe her inspiration stems from her study days in Europe. This exposure gives her an edge and influences are motifs. We are so happy to have a product like Lanre, representing and doing not only Nigeria but the African culture proud.
Our fingers are crossed as we await her new collection which would be extraordinary as usual.
