Owned by sisters Teni, Tiwa & Aba Sagoe – daughters of Nigerian fashion designer & icon Deola Sagoe, the label is giving us clean and sexy silhouettes with asymmetrical cuts, plunging necklines, peplum details, thigh-high slits, cut-outs, pant suits and accessories that all tie into its theme of old Hollywood glamour. They also named pieces after Hollywood’s most iconic females including Audrey Hepburn, as well as other interesting names including Melaina,Kalliope, Kassandra and Erika. Deola Sagoe pieces are 100% Nigerian made, the material being the factor that stands out. The beautifully hand dyed Adhire material brings a huge amount of culture to the pieces, as they are hand dyed by the ladies in the villages, which really gives them a sense of empowerment.
