As a tribute to Mazi Onyebuchi Okoro (1949-2016) menswear Designer, Emmanuel Okoro drew inspiration from his father’s old photos to create the Spring/Summer 2018 collection for his brand EmmyKasbit titled An Ode To My Father .

The collection which debuted at Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2017, took us back to the 70s in Nigeria with a bravura display of unique hand woven textiles produced in Abia State referred to as Akwete cloth. The pieces capture a modern interpretation of vintage designs including suit sets, dresses, skirts, shorts and jackets.

Emmanuel wanted to reimagine how his father would have dressed, if the photos had been taken in 2017.
