In recent years Africian culture has been on a continual rise in the fashion industry. Not only the rise and recognition of more african models, but also the prints and patterns used in collections. One Nigerian brand driving this rise is Okunoren Twins. Established in 2002 by the two Okunoren twins Taiwo and Kehinde, the brand has revolutionised Nigerian fashion with its bespoke tailoring. Now for the first time this coming spring summer season the collection will be available in the UK.
The brands focus is on very traditional African style tunics embellished with details hand crafted in local villages close to the Lagos birthplace of the brand. The pieces have look very laid-back and comfortable, perfect for the not-so-serious individual.
