Fashion has benched the regular, refreshingly inserting fluted sleeves, loads of ruffles, animal prints, polka dots, sequin and more of popular seventies, eighties and nineties trends into today’s looks. But these are not the only trends currently making waves. If you are preoccupied with the above-mentioned trends, you might have missed the latest entrant into the scene: custom prints!
Fashion is dynamic and like any other evolving ‘legacy’ it allows room for growth, differences and expressiveness. While we love us some solid coloured fabric, we’ve also got a deep appreciation for custom prints that convey points that are beyond the realms of a trend. Lately, many fashion creatives are into expressing themselves through custom prints, but custom prints are not new to the fashion world; in fact, it has played a huge role in the growth of the industry.
Custom prints may express ideas that fall either on the side of sultry, artsy, radical or political but overall, the illustrations on these prints which then form the clothing are an exploration of art, culture and individuality.
Once a piece has been designed with a statement print, it is left for the wearer to nail the statement with his/her styling. These looks express artistic elegance and a unique approach to what it means to be contemporary and fashionable.
Here’s a look at how some of Lagos biggest celebrities and socialites are rocking custom print outfits…
