‘The Colours of Marriage’ - This collection is inspired by the colours chosen for traditional Nigerian marriage ceremonies. During most formal marriages the bride wears one white dress, however in 99% of West African marriages the bride and groom both change into custom made outfits at the reception. These outfits are co-ordinating opulently embroidered pieces of a particular textile or colour. The colours are vibrant and often the same textile that the families would be asked to wear too.
