Rising designer and creative director of Mademoiselle Aglaia, Mariam Afolabi just unveiled a new ready-to-wear collection titled FRIDA.
One of Mexico’s greatest icons, Frida Kahlo, was the inspiration for this collection. Kahlo was a female Artist who was known for her influence in the Arts. She was well known for her unique fashion style as was displayed in her self-portraits.
The retro collection displays an artistic array of colours and well defined cuts and according to the label…..
“This collection evolved from not just gaining inspiration from Frida but also the Italian culture, their dancers and the famous matadors. The headpieces and flower print fabrics used represent Frida’s look and fashion style. The consistent use of red is also a way of emphasisng the inspiration from a rose and the colour used mostly by the Italian flamenco dancers”
