DIEKO debut collection showcased at the Africa Fashion Weekend Dublin

After what seemed like eternity, we are back and sharing. But, first have a feel of our debut collection which was unveiled at the AFWD 2010 in Dublin. It was a great show if i do say so myself. I met with other great African designers and the collections were amazing.

African Wax print dominates spring 2010.

Looking through the spring 2010 collections there has been a high number of collections with the use and African theme.
Both Balenciaga and Gucci showed batik-style prints in their Resort 2010 collections.

Juanjo Olivia's spring 2010 collection convinced me that african wax print is here to stay. So ladies, update your wardrobe because 2010 is going to be bright and in print.

CP Fashion & Style Digest July/Aug 2009 - My outfit is on the cover!!!!!!!

Finally, the publication City people Fashion & Style Digest, they organised the City people 2009 Ankara Fashion show - is out. And, guess what! one of my outfits is on the cover. The one thing that kind of like spoiled the moment for me was the fact that they printed my label name wrong. On one page is was written correctly 'DIEKO' and on the other page it says 'DIERO'. I mean we waited almost 2 months for the show coverage in the magazine and then it comes out wrong. I am trying to get the label out there and they kind of almost defeated that main purpose.

I will scan the articles from both magazines for your viewing pleasure.

Busy Busy!

Sorry i have not been able to upload more images from the fashion show. A couple of weeks ago i got a contract to make a large number of outfits using african wax prints for export. I Thought it was going to be quite easy but, boy was i is a lot of work. There were quite a number of designs that just weren't practical to make on a large scale - cost of production increases. I am due to complete the whole contract but already completed outfits are already being sold.
I will put the pictures up maybe anyone looking to make something similar can contact me...
