Why Adire is My Favourite Textile

Welcome to the final part of the Lagos Diaries, where art met fashion. I was lucky enough to shoot my final few looks at the Nike Art Gallery in Lekki. The beautiful and inspiring artworks served as the perfect backdrop for the outfits I’d styled. I loved experimenting with a print boubou that features a DIY belt. I made the belt by cutting a scrap piece from the same fabric and clinching it around my waist. Result? Instantly, the loose adore garment complemented my  shape. I contrasted the fabric’s deep sea blue colour with a gorgeous coral choker that I picked up at the gallery that day.
