One of our favourite Nigerian Labels here at SBQ, iamISIGO has released yet another gorgeous collection for Spring/ Summer 2012 –CXX. We particularly love the inspiration behind this collection. Creative Director, Bubu, was inspired by her favourite decade – the 70s, using vibrant colours like yellow, poppy, grass, ink and the ever present black.
The 70s were filled with fun, color and playfulness with the flared pants, wide collars, the extra short shorts, circle shades and short mini dresses, all of which Bubu missed out on, so she decided to bring the 70s back with an African edge.
This collection was sponsored by Vlisco (which is a high-end traditional Ankara fabric) and released in October 2011, at the MTN Lagos Fashion and Design Week.

Edgy, vibrant, bold and sexy… we absolutely love!
Well done Bubu!
