Jaguda peeped out OYATO’s designs on her blog, and we were wowed by what we saw. Her designs are on point, and very creative. Check out the designs and a brief bio of the company and the outstanding lady behind it.
OYATO (adj.) translation – absolutely, unequivocally DIFFERENT!
The difference is we use fabrics from Africa, a traditionally patriarchal society to create commanding designs for women to illustrate that you can be gracefully feminine yet bold and confident in a male dominated world.
OYATO is the brainchild of Odunayo Ade, a Brooklyn New York born designer of Nigerian ancestry. With an eye for head turning colors and flair for unique prints Odunayo has taken her childhood dream of fashion design from the prestigious Fashion Institute of New York to working at some of the industry’s top fashion houses. OYATO has been featured at local and national fashion shows and as alumnus of the Tracy Reese fashion house Odunayo has participated at the prestigious New York Fashion Week.
In the past year, OYATO has released two collections, ‘Call of the Wild’ our Fall/Winter Collection and ‘Eclecticism’ the Holiday Collection. Currently, the ‘LADY’ Spring/Summer Collection is in the works to be released for viewing in the coming months.
OYATO is a household name with a strong team that provides many services such as Photography, Make Up Artistry, Wardrobe Styling and Tailoring. For ordering information email us at email@example.com and do visit us at oyato.blogspot.com or follow us at twitter.com/OYATO.
