AsakeOge, together with other African designers, took off at the runway of African Fashion Week (AFW) held in New York last month. Freshly surfaced, Asake’s latest textile prints are equally inspiring as her pioneering couture collection in 2010. This year, Asake is the chieftain as her artisans command you to pay homage to tribe heredity. Everything goes well in pair – from ecotourism to social entrepreneurship, so why not embrace heritage and fashion together with ‘coulture’!
And what does last year’s BEFFTA’s Best Female Fashion Designer, AsakeOge has for us this year? Take a look below and you’ll find out!
The garments are handmade by Asake and manufactured under Fair Trade in Nigeria working with native artisans, using mostly silk, cotton and linen which are natural fabrics and sourced from all over Africa. The limited edition prêt-à-porter is a solution to the fashion refugees who finds it easier to follow high street trends and with AsakeOge, it’s not too much at all to ask for original and contemporary pieces that sets you equally on trend. Select pieces are available for sale on the website www.asakeoge.com
