If you love jackets and tunics with a bit of African flavour, the Dare collection is definitely for you. With the likes of M.I, Uti, Denrele, Myk, and Chidinma as models for the look book, it is clear that the Buttons Couture label is about to take center stage in the Nigerian fashion industry.
Buttons Couture’s Dare collection was inspired by its 2010 collection – Remi Buttons, the CEO of the label, wanted to do something better than she had done before. The collection has fewer buttons than the last collection and the brand laid emphasis on it’s logo, “I want people to be able to see my logo and be able to recognize the brand even without asking,” said Remi Buttons.
“I called it ‘Dare’ because I took a lot of risk in terms of design and execution. I also used popular faces who could have easily decided to be unavailable, but they did and I’m glad”.
