Nigerian Fashion Brands I Love – Vol 4

Nigerian Fashion Brands I Love – Vol 4

Hi guys, I’ve not blogged in a while and I apologise for that. It’s being so busy on the home front and as we all know, that area can’t be neglected.

I Can’t believe its mid-September already! The year is already packing up, time really waits for no one, hope you’ve been using your time judiciously 😊.

Back to today’s business! I will be sharing with you another set of Nigerian brands that I love. Please read through and don’t forget to leave a comment 😜.

Elvira Jude

Owned by Chioma Nwankwo, Elvira Jude was founded in 2010. The brand harmoniously combines elegance and functionality in one mix. I can attest to that as I wore an outfit from their “Lion heart” 2019 collection for my Lagos book reading.

Their collections are a combination of sophistication, elegance, confidence and style for the elegant woman. This was the theme for their 2019 ‘Lion Heart Collection’. The brand’s muse for the collection is popular Nigerian actress ‘Genevieve Nnaji’. Genevieve wore the collection in her last movie ‘Lion Heart’ – which the collection is named after.

The brand also does Children’s clothing under their Elvira Jude kids line. For lovers of mini-me fashion, I’m sure they can design a bespoke mummy and me attire on request 😚.

The brand name is coined from the creative director’s mother’s name ‘Philomena’. Her mum had noticed her flair for fashion at an early age as she would help put her mum’s outfit together for events and used to play dress up in her mum’s outfits. Her mum till date calls her ‘lady of the wardrobe’.

Meena was named best runway collection at the Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2016. On sighting ‘Origami-inspired’ as part of the brand description, I was excited! “I know that,” I thought. My son just joined Origami club at school consequently giving me an understanding of what Origami really is. That said, I couldn’t agree more about their pieces being origami-inspired. Fashion and arts at its best I must say…

Love this article and I love each and every trend showcased here and these can match any global brand. I foresee global brand collaborations with these designers in the near future akin to those done in the movie industry.
Abi, you have to do an article on casual wear brands too and those who you think can take on the gaps and zara’s Of this word. In my view they will drive the attention more through their accessibility.
