Nigerian Mother/Daughter Labels Show at NYFW
Presenting alongside their mother Deola Sagoe and her design label Deola, Teni, Tiwa, and Abah Sagoe introduced their Spring/Summer 15 CLAN collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York. Opening the show, CLAN debuted elevated street-wear designs that complimented the high-end, couture ideology of Deola. “It’s a beautiful and sophisticated line that’s more like a sister line to Deola. Deola is very high-end, very bespoke; while CLAN is more minimalist and appeals more to the day-to-day use,” Sagoe told Okayafrica back in February before her F/W 14 showcase. Drawing her inspirations from Nigerian fabrics and silhouettes combined with western aesthetics, this season Deola Sagoe featured garments of detailed cut-outs and appliqués.
