Ready-To-Wear brand Alainé presents its new collection, themed Virgo.
The virgo collection is a range of pieces featuring a new spin on the traditional Nigerian womenswear classic, the iro and buba. The brand got its inspiration from Nigerian women and their different personalities.
According to the brand’s creative, director, “the brand seeks to provide women with pieces for every mood: from simple and elegant, to sexy and fierce, everything that embodies the Alainé woman.”
Alainé (pronounced ah-leyn) channeled its passion for the richness of African fabrics and styles into creating a collection that cuts across cultural divides.
The focus of this brand is its Faux Wrapper; skirts and dresses sewn to give the illusion of an iro, without the hassle of tying a traditional one.
The collection features Western and Nigerian styles, fusing a mix of Ankara, crêpe, organza and striped shirting.
