If you paid any attention to the ARISE Made In Africa Spring 2012 Fashion shows at NYFW, you would have noticed Lisa Folwaiyo's Spring Summer 2012 Vintage love collection. The lookbook is here and its as colorful and glamourous as it was on the runway.
The collection is described as "A time characterized by independence and growth, a time of change and promise. With the emergence of great novelists Chinua Achebe and Wole Soyinka and the development of musical genres highlife and afro-beat with the masters Victor Uwaifo and Fela Kuti danced and swayed to at soirees; a time when modern architectural influences paved new streets – this collection immerses itself in this time."
Its a blend of ethereal fabrics, ankara menswear and colorful pieces! As an avid fan of dresses, i must say the gowns are really calling out to me!
