Eponymous fashion brand Abaya Lagos is here again with a beautiful collection to make your wardrobe more traditional. Abaya Lagos unveiled the ‘Desert Bloom’ collection. The collection is made of an array of vibrant and pastel hues with detailed embellishment.
According to the Creative Director of Abaya Lagos Salihat Rahaman, she said:
Each unique (handmade) piece has an added feel of elegance and luxury to it. Colors and textures are reminiscent of age-old Africa as well as Middle-Eastern Royalty, hence the theme “Ottoman meets Nubia”.
She continues – “I find that I can change/ upgrade my look drastically but effortlessly with a single item off the collection, (either an abaya or turban), turning a regular outfit into something exotic and expensive looking. Bad hair days become a breeze using the turbans, and as an added advantage, I look chic and elegant while still covered up in all the “important” places. This gives me the utmost comfort and confidence.We want customers from different backgrounds to feel comfortable wearing AbayaLagos merchandise regardless of cultural or religious ties.“
