We have had our eye on the Cynthia Abila fashion brand for a while. It celebrates freedom, glamour and feminity and we absolutely love it. The Nigerian based brand recently released their SS19 collection and we are stoked about it.
'This collection was born after my trip to the South-South, Niger-Delta part of Nigeria in July. On the trip, I witnessed the most elaborate burial festivities, exaggerated praises, colourful caskets adorned with ornaments and corals. It is the glamorous celebration of the dead. The opulence motivated the colour scheme and fabrication. So, I reimagined a collection inspired by life’s vitality and a life well spent, using the Krukrubite, a handwoven fabric native to the Niger Delta people of Southern Nigeria,' the designer tells GLAMOUR about the new collection.
Here is a look at a few of our favourite;
