Deola Sagoe who recently renamed her fashion label, “Deola” has released Wings By Deola Collection.
Inspired by her daughter’s class work, based on moths, flies and butterflies, she explores the intricacy of these visually stunning and magical creatures.
She describes it as, ” Developing my own fabrics is essential for me. Every time you do it, it’s fresh; the drawings, the process of making Adire, starting with indigo and then just making music with colour and patterns, “fabric jazz”. I wanted to play with floaty fabrics this time. It was just my mood. Of course I’m still in the throws of my love affair with Aso Oke which is still a huge feature in this collection”.
The collection is definitely captivating. The pieces definitely stand out.
