Fashion brand, based in Abuja, Aisha Abu Bakr has released its 2019 resort collection tagged “Northern Star”.
For this collection, the designer takes the brand on a journey of a culture merger between western and southeastern Nigeria. The technique of hand dye and batik which originates from western Nigeria and the Nsibidi language symbols which are used in the hand-dye originally from southeastern Nigeria are both employed.
The print portrays Love and Unity as these are Nsibidi signs used. 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. From minis skirts to maxi dresses, be prepared to shine as bright as the Northern star.
