Ghana Fashion & Design Week 2012: Orange Culture by Adebayo Oke-Lawal

Orange Culture by Designer Adebayo Okw-Lawal showed a well thought out constructed collection. The designs were trendy, fun and flirty. However, we couldn’t help but think of the US brand Boxing Kitten with the same design style and ethos.  It is a good thing to be compared to a brand that has dressed the likes of Beyonce and Solange Knowles. But, it also means we would like to see a bit more diversity in the offerings by Oke-Lawal for his womenswear. His menswear was quite progressive and uniquely styled. We have a feeling there is more waiting in the wings from this design label. Enjoy a few photos below.
