Budding fashion house ‘My Q Lady‘ has released its latest collection tagged The Roots Collection. The Roots Collection visualizes a brief history of Nigerian heroines, honouring women who have fought for our independence, our freedom and democracy. For its lookbook, the brand fronts actress Jemima Osunde in a collection of simple, graceful and stylish outfits.
The collection celebrates our African roots, highlighting the Adire fabric. Adire – which literally means “tie & dye” is at the core of the collection in designs that show a modern twist to traditional pieces. The collection stays true to the My Q aesthetic – with the use of lace, colour and detailed beading.
Each piece was designed as an ode to an African heroine and her strong roots: they are modern, wearable and reflect the 21st-century woman. The designs celebrate her and in turn her style, representing the African woman essence.
According to the statement by the brand,
“This is a collection that celebrates heroines like Alimotu Pelewura, Dora Akinyuli, Efunroye Tinubu, Emotan, Florence Nwapa, Funmilayo Ransome Kuti, Hajiya Gambo Sawaba, Hannah Dideolu Awolowo, Kudirat Abiola, Madam Grace Soyinka, Margaret Ekpo, Mary Okezie, Moremi Ajasoro, Nwanseruma, Queen Amina, Queen Idia and Stella Adadevoh“
