I wore this look for the final day of LFDW 2014 and damn was I looking so good! I was looking through pictures recently and I just said to myself, I haveee to shoot this for you girls to see.
Green has never been anywhere close to one of my favorite colors but I instantly fell in love with the brightness of this shade of green when I walked into the WS studio. I really love how glam and sexy this look is. I decided to do gold accessories to compliment the green and lastly, I couldn’t resist smacking on some ruby woo. Trust me, when I went for LFDW, I could literally feel eyes on me, green with envy…definitely hoping they had their hands on this skirt before me, hence the title of this post. Lol!

So, I have to tell you this…Ituen Basi is such a genius! I mean, I knew she was good but let me just say I was stunned by this collection. The photos do not do justice to the beautiful collection she sent down the runway this season. I was so glad I witnessed the greatness live.
If you haven’t already guessed, I’m totally in love with this collection. This collection is probably the most cohesive collection I have seen this year. It’s so rich in content and you can clearly see that this designer has done her homework. As the models walked down the runway in their geek glasses and quirky smiles, it was obvious this collection was all about fun, fun and more fun. The bright colours, the crop tops, the bustiers, the tea length dresses…it all just made so much sense.
She also didn’t fail to incorporate the Nigerian culture in her line. The influence can be seen in the measuring tape inspired iro and buba, the ‘danfo’ bus inspired separates and the african dancers on the short suits and co. I am beyond impressed and I am only curious to see what more the brand has in store for us.
Peep my favourite pieces below…enjoy!
