Japan On Her Mind: Deola Sagoe goes from Oriental to Ori Oke

by Yemi Olowu

Deola Sagoe always infuses traditional African roots – in fabric and in design – into her collections. With her Ori Oke collection which showed at the Lagos Fashion Week however, she took things up a notch – we saw such eclectic combinations of African and Eastern style as the short Kimono made from Aso Oke. We share a few pieces from her Ori Oke collection which have stunning resemblance to Japanese objects.
