Nigerian designer Bubu Ogisi releases her latest collection under the I AM ISIGO brand titled “EAST OF WEST”. The collection was first showcased at the SAFW Durban in May 2015.
The collection has strong western themes, evoking fringed hems, lapels and boxy cuts. The collection also embraces the ‘feminine’ art of crochet, the final frontier of truly bespoke clothing with hand-crocheted lattice dresses, flared pants and jackets, with traditional doily patterns exaggerated for effect. The crochet fringed s took 264 hours to create and all crochet pieces were hand made in Nigeria.
