Womenswear designer, Lanre Da Silva Ajayi unveils a new collection for Spring/Summer 2017 titled “Artistic Statement”.

Heavily influenced by her love for art, the designer explores an artistic imagery through fashion by collaborating with renowned artist, Mr Ayoola Gbolahan.

The collection feature feminine, bold and edgy pieces in fabrics such as Silk, Velvet, Lace, Organza rich in details. Lanre challenges the discourse of wearable art; creating a story to the liberties of art and its multi faceted layers that in many ways resonates with the idea of a modern, sophisticated woman. Art and Fashion are successfully united in this collection with bold hand-painted images on solid colors.

According to the designer:

“From the onset, I visualised an artistic imagery which prompted me to work alongside renowned artist Mr Ayoola Gbolahan who brought my creative thoughts to life. The beauty of imagination is limitless. I could see and analyse the feelings they would evoke in every woman. The feeling of not just pride alone but of strength and renowned dignity”. The talented artist, Ayoola, says “Everything is a symbol with meanings. Images don’t just appear in my work as random decorative patterns alone. There’s a thought behind everything, a purpose to communicate”. According to him everything is a language form to enhance or catalyse a discussion. And fashion has never been more essential in creating a dialogue than now, right here, in this age in which we live in.”
