You will agree that creating anything can be quite the task. There are so many phases involved; coming up with ideas and setting those ideas in motion, if your idea has many facets, finding someone to work with you on creating them then making these ideas visually appealing for the end-users With our new
collection, it was quite the ride. We never want to churn out items that do not hold personal meanings to us and we have a rather sweet story behind how it all panned out. Stay relaxed while we give you all the gist!
. . . . .
To start with, you can rightfully assume that the idea for this collection was conceived years ago. It was inspired by a color pattern we wanted to create years ago. It is a fairly small and personal collection of just five pieces of items ranging from our signature kimonos to jackets and stunning A-line dresses all made from gorgeous Ankara floral prints and color black and white Kente materials.
After the collection was created, we decided to have a photoshoot in our usual fashion and guess what, it almost didn’t happen! We strongly decided to proceed on a set date and we went for it!
Thankfully, Lolly has a photography studio in her home workspace which afforded unbeatable convenience especially given how much public spaces have been affected at these times. She invited the model, makeup artist and photographer, long-time friends who were afforded the chance to work together again after a long time!
You already have an idea how this went! It was an exciting session filled with gist's, great vibes, laughter, and lots of fun. It was truly refreshing to see friends who continued to pursue their goals and followed their dreams even after becoming parents.
That’s how it all happened and though it is all still in progress, you can certainly taste our excitement. This collection was made with so much love and we cannot wait to have you shop with us.
