Designer Nkwo Onwuka prepares to release her diffusion range ‘Afromania’ collection under the Nkwo label. Afromania is meant to be a line that is more affordable and accessible.
“We had a great time shooting the photos for the look book/website. (I am) really excited about this range and it has excited a number of buyers from all over,” said Onwuka. “(It is) a bit free spirited, a bit nomadic (and) totally African.”
Ladybrillemag.com is glad to see African designers creating collections that are accessible and affordable. Ultimately, it is what will keep them in business for a long time, especially during a hard economy.
