Afromania's 'Love Festival' Collection
"Love Festival," the latest collection by African fashion label Afromania, designed by Nkwo Onwuka for Spring/Summer 14.
We'd like to showcase Afromania and the brains behind the label, Nkwo Onwuka. A UK-based Nigerian designer, Onwuka's throwback 2011 Love Festival collection draws inspiration from the 60s with a wink to her African heritage. Onwuka opted to use fabrics sourced in Africa to mix it up and deliver a stunning collection. The garments enhance a woman's silhouette while being structured — mixing feathers, fringes, as well as both hand-dyed and hand-woven fabrics. There's a clear strong signature in her pieces and what we like the most is that they're totally wearable. You'll stand out wearing these but that's the point, isn't it? We're not huge on the dry staging for her lookbook but certainly want to recognize her great work. Scroll through our gallery above and tweet @okayafrica with #afromania to talk about it!
