Budding Nigerian fashion brand Mademoiselle Aglaia just released a new ready-to-wear collection titled FRIDA.
According Mariam Afolabi, the brand’s young founder and creative director, the collection was inspired by, Frida Kahlo, one of Mexico’s most iconic Artist who was revered for her influence in arts. Frida Kahlo was known for her unique style as was shown in many of her self-portraits.
The retro collection features an artistic designs in a variety of colours and pronounced cuts.
“This collection evolved from not just gaining inspiration from Frida but also the Italian culture, their dancers and the famous matadors. The headpieces and flower print fabrics used represent Frida’s look and fashion style. The consistent use of red is also a way of emphasisng the inspiration from a rose and the colour used mostly by the Italian flamenco dancers” – Mariam Afolabi.
The collection diverse as there’s a look for every personality: fun, sexy, serious and every character in between is somehow represented in this collection.
