Arise Magazine Fashion Week DAY 1 -AMINE BENDRIOUICH, EKI ORLEANS, EJIRO AMOS TAFARI, MADAME WOKIE, NIKKI KHIRAN & TOJU FOYEH

ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION WEEK - DAY 1. PART 1

AMINE BENDRIOUICH (A B C B) (N. Africa) 
Amine Bendriouich Couture & Bullshit collection for AMFW for men and women was a composition of edgy to relaxed unisex trousers, vests, coats, capes and jumpsuits. Made from 100% English wool, the fabrics where actually vintage stock from the 1970’s and 80’s made in Casablanca. Inspired by Amine’s everyday experiences from music, people and travel (A B C B) is just a down to earth mix of Rock ‘N’ Roll and "Ayobaness" (Ayoba is a South African word for everything cool). Love the separate collar detail. 




















EKI ORLEANS (UK)
With the introduction of stunning beach wear, Hazel Aggrey-Orleans presented at best her vibrant, femme flattering Wave Collection in an assortment of African inspired, unique prints and patterns on the softest of silks. The collection was inspired by Hazel's childhood memories spent by the beach on the beautiful Atlantic coastline. The combination of the turbulent and calm nature of oceanic waves was nicely represented in the beautiful patterns in the collection. 










EJIRO AMOS TAFARI (NG)
Funky chic and wearable designs inspired by vibrant, fun-loving, Lagos women and the city’s cultural diversity. 
















MADAME WOKIE'S COUTURE (SL)
Inspired by the 1960’s Chiefs and Queens of Sierra Leone one being the label’s namesake Madam Wokie Massaquoi who was given a crown by the Queen of England. Mary-Anne Kai Kai brilliantly used local fabrics; woollen and gara to create a stunning, tropical geometric collection in neon brights for women to majestically walk in, demanding the attention they deserve. Loving the traditional threading detail.










NIKKI KHIRAN COUTURE (NG)
An intensely elegant display of graceful dresses in ethnic and abstract prints on earthy and water landscape tones.


















TOJU FOYEH (NG) 
A pleasant display of glamorous dress in a strict gold and nude palette with delicate detailing, flattering silhouettes, interesting structuring and volume in the right places.
