Some designers get their inspiration from trends, some from experiences, and yet for others, it comes from travelling somewhere beautiful and being enthralled in an exciting new culture. That was the case with Nigerian New York-based designer, Esther Ihezie (Ezie), who was inspired by a visit to the captivating city of Rome – a life-changing experience which birthed her second collection, perfectly labelled, Eden.
“My visit to the rose garden was absolutely breath taking. As I sat and gazed at the picturesque view, I was mesmerised by its simplicity, freshness and beauty contained in one location,” she said of her Roman experience. “It was everything I had envisioned for this collection. A fresh, clean but inadvertently sexy and vibrant assortment with the versatility to be worn as a standalone piece but also to complement others.”
Following the successful launch of Ihezie’s debut collection – The Essentials – the designer has launched this follow-up Spring/Summer 2017 collection, an 11-piece ready-to-wear collection. Eden takes it back-to-basics with longline tops, playful high slit dresses, kimonos and wide leg oversized trousers – a collection displaying undeniable alluring femininity.
