Shot by Story teller Obi Somto, the collection was built for “Woven Threads”, an exhibition organized by Lagos Fashion and Design week.  The exhibition looked to the future of Nigerian fashion as it explored the art of textile craftsmanship. Such traditional arts are an integral part of Nigerian heritage and cultural identity and bring employment and income for many communities in the country.

Hosted by the British Council and the British Fashion Council Woven Threads held during London Fashion Week in Feb 2013, completed the link between the art of textile craftsmanship and the fashion industry’s emerging talent in Nigeria, making its vision of synergy between the country’s garment heritage and blossoming fashion industry a reality

Orange Culture chose to explore Adire, designing and creating its adire print from scratch, aso-oke and cow skin leather,  using these exciting fabrics to tell the story of an artistic lover, who is crowned by the feeling of a love he fails to understand.

The Orange Culture man is quirky, edgy and very much fearless; he has no time for closed minded individuals.
