Asiyami Gold's Playful & Easy-To-Wear African Prints

This is about Nigerian label Asiyami Gold and their collection for Spring/Summer 14.

While New York remains in cold January days, we're already getting an idea of what to expect for S/S 14. Nigerian brand Asiyami Gold is definitely a name to remember for what could be hot and trendy come September. Featuring plain African prints, Asiyami Gold pieces are colorful, easy-to-wear and playful. You can mix and match these at your convenience and the price range is pretty affordable. Designer Asiyami Wekulom knows how to mix it up and construct garments with bright prints. This is the perfect attire for a radiant woman and we hope to see Asiyami Gold enhancing silhouettes for S/S 14. Let us know what your favorite piece is by tweeting @okayafrica with #asiyamigold.
