Celeb and personal stylist Ezinne Chinkata, who has worked with some ofNigeria’s biggest stars including Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Monalisa Chinda, recently launched a fashion line Zinkata with the release of a debut 5 piece collection.
The collection, made with love from African prints, features timeless figure flattering shapes and fun prints, will officially be launched at Zinkata’s annual Made in Africa shopping event. The event takes place Sunday, 7th August 2016 at 13B Awori Road, Dolphin Estate, Lagos, Ngeria.
Before you head to the event, check out the lookbook with descriptions by a Zinkata rep.
1. The Constance: It’s a dress inspired by the traditional blouse and double wrapper worn by African women. It is a very striking dress made from Original Dutch Wax (Vlisco).
Specially crafted to flatter all body types; the Constance has quite a strong stamp of the ethnic while maintaining a universal contemporary feel. Available in different complimentary and contrasting prints.
2. The Print Pinafore and Shirt: One of our favourites and made from contrasting print fabrics, the high-waisted pinafores maintains a lady-like solemn shape whilst the vibrant prints, adds an intriguing fun twist to the entire ensemble.
3. The Multi-Functional Sun Dress
This dress is quite a fun one with contrasting patch-work details on the belt. It would look great styled with a white shirt underneath, for those averse to showing their arms.
4. The Classic Skirt Suits
Round necked and nipped in waists gives these mixed print suits a vintage vibe whilst the Vlisco prints brings a new twist to traditional suiting.
5. The Voluminous skirt and 80’s jacket: A very flattering and elegant piece. Nipped in high-waisted full skirt and a slightly cropped jacket makes for quite an arresting elegant piece.
