Teintes de Bijoux is the latest expression of the Komole range by top Nigerian brand Deola Sagoe; a selection of designs for bridal and occasion wear which draws its inspiration from the mood and myths evoked through the ages by African royalty.
Komole which means to dance – is occasion wear with over 20 years of research and development put into it to achieve this impressive and deep bridal wears for the beautiful African woman.
According to the head designer Deola Ade Ojo:
It is not just a parallel to the European lace but a usurper… making the new design even better than the sum of its parts. There is no need anymore to have Aso-oke and a lace outfit with two answers to an occasion’s fashion demands. We have combined both into one and by so doing transcended, making the new creation even better than the sum of its parts. The new fabric motifs and the fashions that we have formed them into elevating the wearer to royalty level, while still keeping her culturally grounded – I believe that this is what true class and elegance is about, shining in the form of a glow rather than a tinselly shine.
Komole has undeniably given aso oke an invaluable face-lift and identity worldwide and is original from conceptualization to crafting to final creation. This unique fabric is one that deeply imbibes our African culture and can really be said to be indigenous to the people of Nigeria and by extension Africa. Find out more on www.deolasagoe.co.
