Ready-To-Wear brand Alainé by Celine recently released its new collection titled Virgo featuring top make up artist – of Anita Brows as their Muse .
The range of pieces puts a new spin on the traditional Nigerian womenswear , iro and buba.
Alainé (pronounced ah-leyn) channelled its passion for the richness of african fabrics and styles into creating a collection that cuts across cultural divides.
The focus of the range is its Faux Wrapper; skirts and dresses sewn to give the illusion of an iro, without the hassle of tying a traditional one. The collection is a fusion of Western and Nigerian styles, fusing a mix of ankara, crêpe, organza and striped shirting.
Taking its inspiration from Nigerian women and their different personalities, the brand seeks to provide women with pieces for every mood: from simple and elegant, to sexy and fierce, everything that embodies the Alainé woman.
