HeinekenLFW2018: Edo Heritage Inspires Eki Orleans’ SS19 Collection

Eki Orleans Lagpos Fashion Week 2018 OnoBello

With her tenth collection, Creative Director of Eki Orleans, Hazel Aggrey-Orleans, found inspiration in her rich Edo Nigerian heritage for her Day 3 Showcase at the Heineken Lagos Fashion Week 2018.

Inspired by Edo State, Nigeria, the brand used the traditional Edo sword, the Eben, as the design focal point of the stunning prints in the aptly named Eben SS19 collection.

Designed with the modern woman in mind, the Eben collection features a combination of versatile separates and gorgeous kaftans that make it light and easy to travel with. Featuring her signature elegant silhouettes that project sophistical and subtle boldness, each piece in the Eben collection is an homage to the beauty of the female figure.

The luxurious silks of the collection are brought to life by her interpretation of the intricate designs of the Eben sword, which tell a beautiful story of the Edo culture.
