U.K. based Nigerian designer Asake Agoro has released the look book for her spring 2012 collection, “Timeless Heritage”. Here’s what the designer had to say about the bold, colourful designs that grace the new collection for her Asake Agoro line.
“Timeless Heritage” is a tribute to the matriarchs in my family my grandmother passed on a fashion legacy to my mother and her sisters and this was passed on to me. Each dress has been named after these seven women.
I have drawn inspiration from nature, a tropical paradise setting with a colour palette of Red, Blue and Yellow; Yellow for the sun, Blue for the skies and ocean and Red for the sunset, flowers and passion. Staying true to the AsakeOge ethos of using bold bright colours, these pieces are the core of a 21 piece collection. The timelessness is conceived in the use of luxurious French Silk, French Cotton and Silk Jersey made into garments with classic silhouettes that would stand the test of time. Less is more as the bright colours, soft flowing fabrics and bright prints speak for themselves.
With pieces ranging from evening wear, bridal, red carpet to day wear, there’s something for everywoman. You are not afraid to standout because the Asakeoge woman is a trendsetter not a fashion follower. – Asake Agoro
