If vibrant + ultra-bold prints used to be the identity only for the African culture, today were seeing them being embraced by the West. Busayo Olupona is the designer behind the Busayo brand and her goal is to introduce strong and dynamic color into everyone´s closet, minus the culture-divide.
If you´re a person who wants to develop a personal style that´s unique and different from what is typical and on trend, then you will surely love Busayo´s limited quantity, original garments.
Regardless of the season, even for fall and winter, Busayo wants you to embrace bright colors and steer clear of dim and depressing hues.
From formal dresses to maxis and work-appropriate skirts, this African-inspired brand will inspire you to always, and yes, always inject happy colors to your wardrobe.
Instead of being a one-off seasonal trend, African-inspired fashion is becoming a chic woman´s fashion staple. Here are some of my personal favorites from their spring/summer 2015 collection.
The feminine lace dress is getting a makeover. This dress is made of cotton eyelet dyed in luscious shades of red, yellow and green with contrasting white strips. It´s easy to believe that it´s not your common fit and flare dress.
We´re used to bright solid chiffon dresses but rarely are we treated to a bright patterned chiffon long dress. Why not amp up your summer with this spaghetti straps chiffon maxi dress?
While still colorful, this Batik frock brings a sense of mysterious. It´s a desk to date piece.
When creating a head-to-toe black outfit, especially with leather pants, remember to add a jacket with contrasting Batik print.
I would love to brighten up my office looks with a pebble designed, colored full skirt that´s as gorgeous as this.
I won’t even hesitate to wear this fitted pencil skirt featuring a bright print of green, purple, and gold accents to any formal gatherings or even to business meetings!
Busayo strives to bring the entire spectrum of hues into the global closet. She dares you to incorporate just a little bit more color to your style, what´s your response?
