Wana Sambo through this year has been working on a collection series “Modern Woman”; the collection features females they believe represent the ideal “today’s woman”.  The first edition of this series features Laila Johson-Salami (more details are on www.wanasambo.com); for the second edition, Wana Sambo believes their chosen muse has “consistently proven that fashion is more than just a combination of pieces to make a statement, she has used her style to control today’s woman’s narrative on how she is perceived and represented through fashion.”

The Modern Woman (Part 2) collection is titled; “Unapologetically Woman!” and Temi Otedola, or as she is popularly called, JTO, is our star!

Temi is a fashion & lifestyle blogger, media personality, content creator and presenter. As a fashion influencer who fused high-end fashion with the best of West African designs, she launched her website jtofashion.com in 2016 and has since expressed herself through it. Temi is a magazine contributor, a brand consultant and brand ambassador.

We designed 3 garments for this collection;

LOOK 1: The JTO Pair: An elegantly fitted feminine cut peplum blouse with a rushed sleeve on the right side (while her left sleeve is left bare) is paired with a flared skirt designed with cascading drapes and front split guaranteed to turn heads when the Wana Sambo Woman walk into any room.

Look 2: The CHIZO Pair: An exaggerated bishop collar sleeveless blouse with full flare cascading drapes on one side (from shoulder to bodice) paired with an asymmetric flare skirt.

Look 3: The OYINKAN Dress:  She’s a pleated bodice midi-dress with on/off-shoulder asymmetrical sleeves. Her deep V-neckline with a draping side train and a zipper at the back make her a “Multifunctional Boss Babe”!
