1. Deola by DeolaSagoe
Deola has been in the fashion business for some time now. If you are looking for couture and custom made pieces she is your go to person. From her laser cut komole as she calls it which has become the staple piece for almost every luxury wedding in Nigeria.
She uses rich, vibrant colours in her designs with simple, elegant and intricate details.The brand oozes luxury. One of my favourite pieces is from her Wings collection because of the use of adire with splash of colours which was incorporated in the textiles. Her instagram page consists of her intricate laser cut komole in vibrant hues if you are into details this page is for you.

I am slightly obsessed with Duro especially when it comes to his prints. He rarely posts his pieces on Instagram but the few times he does it’s heaven. PS. I stalk him on vogue everytime a new collection is released. His page consists mostly of art work by various artists, fashionable Lagos street style you will never know with his pictures because it keeps you guessing. His page shows his artistic side which gives one an understanding of his love of colourful vibrant prints. For the artsy lovers this is the page for you.

3. Maki Oh
Maki oh speaks to my inner girly side her pieces are girly, quirky and what i love about her is she understands the use of Nigerian made textiles which is evident in all her pieces. Her instagram page consists of her collection along with her various international publications which shows the positive reception of the adire by the international communty which to me was long overdue. She sticks to the whole African aesthetics in terms of styling and also the models she uses. If you love girly feminine with a bit of edge style she is your girl.

4. Orange Culture
Now this is one brand i’m obsessed with, it is an androgynous brand that provides both male and female pieces. He is one of the few Nigerian designers i know who is able to have an eclectic vibe which makes his brand edgy, sexy with a laid back cool factor to it.
His pieces are the types you can wear for your day to day activities without breaking a sweat or complain about how uncomfortable you are, they can easily transit from day to night with a change of heels and a sexy belt viola it’s lounge time with the girls which shows the versatility of the brand. His instagram page is cool, edgy, colourful, male, female and oh so creative. If you love versatility no holds back fashion orange culture is for you.
