Upcoming designer Blessing Bashir of BBartistry recently released her debut collection tagged The Perfect Blend. This collection features a striking blend of fabrics and appliques like Ankara, Batik, mesh, fringe and crepe, all of which come together in a sartorially pleasing way.
The images of the collection were shot in an environment that showcases the richness of our culture. The rural setting featuring mud, raffia, wood and clay-made homes are all a perfect blend for the collection whose major characteristic is earthly hues.
The designs are suitable for event and everyday wear which is what the creative director Blessing Bashir aimed for.
According to the designer:
The collection was birth out of a place of realizing all I had gone through as a woman in the past year, having my first baby was such a blessing but there was also a lot of physical and emotional pain and struggles, through this all, I still had to fulfill all my responsibilities as a woman to the best of my abilities, and it just got me thinking about how strong a woman is and the fact that you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it. The pieces are a perfect blend of happiness and pain, and how everything comes together beautifully well to create unique pieces.
Take a look at the collection below…
