Abuja-based fashion brand, Aisha Abu Bakr released its Resort 2019 collection, tagged ‘Northern Star’, which was inspired by the brightest star in the constellation. That is how the eponymous designer views every woman wearing a piece of this collection; as the brightest star in their constellation.
For this collection, the designer, Aisha Abubakar Achonu takes the brand on a journey of culture-merging – a mix of Western and South-Eastern Nigeria. The technique of hand dye and batik, and the Nsibidi language symbols were both employed in creating the designs. The designer’s creative license is visible in the collection, as there is a balance between modern trends and cultural inspiration.
“Every item of the collection will appeal to ladies across different age spectrums,” according to the label. “From mini skirts to maxi dresses, be prepared to shine as bright as the Northern star.”
