On Sunday, 13th of April, Viva La Resistance and L’Espace launched their new capsule collection called ‘Eaden’. It was inspired by art deco style featuring different modern and vintage sofa styles. The collection features hand dyed prints in soft hues combined with textured lace and chiffon fabrics to create a collection of essential pieces in simple shapes. See more images after the cut.
I love discovering new talent and was overjoyed when Koye, a budding fashion designer, reached out to me with her new project titled ‘Music of the Dead’. She spent a good chunk of the year reading about Greek mythology and decided to challenge herself and based her project on a lesser known greek goddess, Persephone, who was married to the god of Death, Hades.

JUMIA, one of Nigeria’s biggest e-commerce stores, unveiled a new subcategory especially for Nigerian fashion. This store, named ‘By Naija’, will be selling premium Nigerian fashion brands. Jumia believes in promoting great Nigerian talent and this store is one of the ways for them to do it. From the onset of the largest online fashion store, Jumia has been working with some of the biggest fashion designers, such as 24 Apparel and David Wej, who have since seen success with selling their products online especially on Jumia.com.
Head of Fashion at Jumia Nigeria, Funmi Daniel stated, “Jumia Fashion is still growing and with this great step of creating the “By Naija” store we are recognizing local talents. Also we are welcoming as many Nigeria brands as possible to reach their target audience online at ease and get the maximum exposure for their brand.

What do you think about ‘By Naija’? I think this is great that Jumia opened up a category specifically for Nigerian fashion brands. Promoting our own culture and talents is great for the growing fashion industry.
