My (Kike) favourite Nigerian designer of all time and one of my many mentors in Fashion, Lanre Da-Silva Ajayi, has created yet another masterpiece. Her latest collection -“Modern Age” left me speechless as I “ooo’d” and “aah’d” at every single piece.

She showed this collection at the Arise Magazine Fashion Week, and it was well received with open arms as the audience cheered her on. This is undoubtedly her best work till date. Looking at each of these pieces before they went on the runway, it was obvious that the entire collection was carefully crafted, constructed and well planned. She took a different turn with this collection, I think, with edgy pieces here and there, but she stayed true to her girly colours, embellishments and intricate beading.

This collection left me beaming! I was too happy for words, one would think I was getting all of these pieces for myself with the way I was skipping after she showed them. (But be rest assured, I have bagged myself one of them, I won’t say which one yet, till it is safely in my arms!)

Enjoy, the “Modern Age“.

A lot of my friends say I’m slightly biased when it comes to LDA, but come on! You cannot deny this woman’s talent.
