I A M I S I G O Spring/Summer 15 Collection: TABOO

You  were first introduced to IAMISIGO through their White Noise collection where the Nigerian fashion line further established their take on minimal design, influenced by African culture.  Offering a different design perspective from the last, IAMISIGO’s Spring/Summer 15 collection draws its inspiration from the Wodaabe, a nomadic Fulani ethnic group in the Sahel. Known as ‘People of the Taboo’, their magnificent culture is well-recognized for elaborate ceremonies and traditional attire that often celebrate beauty and sexual freedom. The new collection delivers bold statement pieces that fully embrace the strength and nobility of its influence in this extensive look-book release.

STRANGER Boutique, Lagos presents SPRING / SUMMER 2015 EDITORIAL #1 “MYTHOPOESIS” featuring designers PEIR WU, U.MI-1, and IAMISIGO

‘The idea of myth making is something that has interested us at Stranger for a long time. The capacity for human beings to tell stories and imbue mundane or unusual events with greater agency through the use of narrative and myth is something that we believe has a lot of power. We worked with two young artists - Adeju Thompson and Tunde Alara - on this editorial, asking them to develop characters and environments with which to transport our models and the clothing they were wearing to something that transcends the every day.’
