Womenswear brand Mazelle has released a new collection tagged “Queen of the East” and it visualizes the story of the Eastern Nigerian Culture.
According to the statement following the release:
In line with her runway showcase at Paris Fashion Week for AW19, the head designer interpreted her vintage aesthetic with a twist of authentic Nigerian touch on each outfit.
Much like her previous collections, this edit exhibits an array of Mazelle’s distinctive adire mix, clean shapes, and lines with a vintage peak, sequins, shimmer, femme inspired fabric and clever use of embellishments delicately hand-beaded unto quality fabrics.
This collection was inspired by the rich culture of Eastern Nigeria. The modern Igbo female attire which embodies the elegant puffed sleeve blouse, layered pants, dresses, some wrap sets in vibrant colours and designs that resonate with every African Woman.
