Remember OBSIDIAN? The label with the first fashion film in Nigeria has just releases another collection called ‘Dux Femina Facti’. The collection was first viewed at the Music meets Runway event, and the look book features Season 7 Britain’s Next Top Model contestant, Ufuoma Itoje.
“‘Dux Femina Facti’ is Latin for ‘A woman was the leader of the exploit’. The main inspiration for this collection came from the strength and grace of ancestral African female leaders. Utilising a clever mix of silk and crystal organza, crushed taffeta and faux-coral hand beading as well as a vivid color palette, the collection is bewitching and elegant.”
