Nigerian-Austrian fashion brand, Fulani Fashion, has released its spring/summer 2018 collection tagged Quiet Storm. #QuietStorm is also a sub-genre of RnB music that is characterized by mellow dynamics, slow tempos, and relaxed rhythms. The brand’s designer and singer Omatu, who also got inspired by Young M.A’s song ‘quiet storm’ is back after a quiet season, ready to conquer the fashion industry like an unstoppable storm!
The collection features lavender, lemon-yellow and geometrical prints which are the dominants. Also in this collection are couture gowns made of chiffon and silk, ready to rock the red carpet as well as party and cocktail outfits designed for any occasion and mood. Casual blouses, skirts, and pants with a touch of sexy made of viscose, cotton, and jersey, for your everyday styling are not left out of the collection. The various pieces have different names which includes: Agata, Olasupo, Anita, Anna and Dany, Anna and Ola, Anna and Sande, Barbs and Ola, Barbs and Sande, Candace, Dimi, Jeli and Dany, Jeli and Sande, Jowy, Lauraa, Masee, Mirimo, Omatu, Quiet and Storm.
‘Sex and the City’ author Candace Bushnell was the first to wear one of the haute couture gowns from the #QuietStormCollection at the Women of the Year Gala in Vienna in November 2016 where she received her lifetime achievement award. The American fashion icon told the press she felt like a princess in her Fulani gown. “Don’t try to find Mr. Big, be Mr. Big!” were very inspiring words for #OmatuFulani, when both of them had a chat.
