The Retrospect Collection by Ejiro Amos Tafiri was inspired by the uber stylish former first lady of Nigeria- Maryam Babangida. According to Ejiro, “her style, poise, and sumptuous gait represent the woman we all want to be: confident, grounded, and flexible.”
“To pay homage to a true style icon, we decided to tell a story of diversity and tolerance with models from two African countries and another from France, with a lookbook shot in the windy and beachy city of Lome in Togo.”-she added.
The spring/summer 2022 collection- RETROSPECT collection is very Nigerian in its contemporary appeal, from fabric choices; and masterful drapery techniques to classic silhouettes. We have used meticulous and indigenous techniques to craft finely woven fabrics like Aso-oke and hand-dyed materials.
This retrospect collection offers a diverse range of sophisticated silhouettes, including merry dresses, prim skirts, shapely corsets, and volume jackets.
Taking on the tradition from our previous collections, we have consciously created diversely inclusive designs that offer women of different cultural and religious backgrounds some comfort, a space to be seen, heard, and understood.
