Bold Prints As Lisa Folawiyo Debuts RTW Spring/Summer 2015 Collection At New York Fashion Week


Nigerian designer Lisa Folawiyo is one of the New York Fashion Week first-timers that we were looking forward to seeing as she debuted her Spring/Summer 2015 ready-to-wear collection. The collection was everything we expected it to be and then more.

WWD states that “With her pretty spring collection, Nigerian designer Lisa Folawiyo proved again that Africa deserves a place on the fashion map.”

Vogue also lists her collection as one of the 7 things they loved about New York Fashion Week stating, “Nigerian designer Lisa Folawiyo brought her show to New York for the first time this season, with a charming offering to match the delicious macaroons at Ladurée’s restaurant in Soho.”

The collection was a fusion of traditional African fabrics presented in a modern and trendy way. With her collection Lisa Folawiyo certainly broke the rules of fashion as she mixed prints and gave us unique looks in each and every piece.

We love how the collection has an overall effect of sophistication and femininity. We love the graphic patterns and we love the pleats and plissé inserts incorporated into colorful pieces. Lisa Folawiyo has definitely made a fashion statement with this collection.
