Arise Fashion Week 2019: Kenneth Ize Gives Traditional Pieces A Modern Twist

Arise Fashion Week 2019 took off on Friday, April 19 with a good number of emerging and eminent brands showcasing their designs on what’s been hailed as “the most beautiful runway in Africa.” The venue was the Lagos Continental Hotel in Victoria Island as ready-to-wear (RTW) menswear and womenswear fashion brand, Kenneth Ize brought colourful threads and structured silhouettes to the playing ground.

The Lagos-born designer and 2019 LVMH prize nominee delivered a uniquely designed collection to the runway on Day 2 of the just concluded Arise Fashion Week.

The collection came imbibed with so much culture and tradition as a majority of the pieces were made from either the traditional handwoven fabric popularly known as ‘Aso Oke’ or from the traditional hand-dyed fabric ‘Adire.’

The precious fabrics were made into boxy shaped pieces, frayed carpenter pants and skirts and free-flowing apron-styled vests, all very vibrant in colour. The pieces were also notably modern and versatile enough to be styled for different seasons.

Kenneth Ize craftily mixed different patterns and fabrics which resulted in the striking outfits that hit the runway. His play on colours has us totally wanting every piece in this collection.

Check out select pieces from the collection…
