Can we talk about the Iconic Deola Sagoe for a moment? We know her, love her, and have stood amazed by how she puts Nigeria on fashion’s world stage – for all the right reasons.
Deola stays at the cutting-edge of fashion and keeps innovating. Her latest luxurious collections – the Komole Kandids – have quickly become the favourite of celebrities and the wealthy. Spawning 6 reasons why we think she’s the absolute boss:
She’s redefining bridal wear
If you count the number of celebrity weddings that have taken place in Nigeria within the last month – Deola Sagoe has created masterpieces for almost all of the brides. What does that tell you? The days of looking out to Vera Wang or Parisian Haute Couture for Nigerian brides may be over.
She has remained consistent to luxury
Everyone aspires to have a Deola Sagoe piece. Her brand is apologetically luxurious and she has stuck to it. And the result is that every Deola Sagoe creation is one that can be termed “timeless.”
Every piece is art
Deola Sagoe’s creations are exquisite pieces of wearable art. The painstaking and obvious attention to detail, the beautiful creations, and the emotions that her clothing evokes – that can only be true art.
Aso-Oke goes global
Deola has taken Aso-Oke a predominantly Nigerian fabric – and made it into a thing that the whole world can wear. And it’s not just WHAT she does with it, it’s how she does it.
She keeps innovating
Every time we feel we’ve seen Deola reach a new height, she takes it even further. Stretching our imagination and helping us to see that fashion is one of the greatest forms of self expression.
She has taken Nigeria to the world
For some people, the only thing that they know about Nigeria is Deola Sagoe – she’s a great ambassador for the excellence that can come out of the richly blessed West African country.
She’s a true trailblazer
Deola is way ahead of the pack – showing why she’s an important pillar to the fashion industry in Nigeria – and the world at large.
