Feminine, wearable and playfully sophisticated are words that best
describe Akpos Okudu pieces. Every Akpos Okudu piece shows a love for lush
fabric, intricate details and colour. With this collection, the designer
is clearer about her clients’ needs and what they are about and has made
clothes that women love to wear, want to wear & CAN afford to wear.
Remember the picture of the ladies in pink having a tea party on the lawn?
Designer Akpos Okudu is back injecting a little bit of sunshine in the
world one pretty little thing at a time! It’s been a whirlwind year;
numerous exhibitions, editorials in ThisDay Style, FAB and Complete
Fashion magazines, dressing celebrities including Joke Silva, Stephanie
Okereke and Omowunmi Akinnifesi and a nomination at The Future Awards for
“Designer of the Year”!

With the release of the long awaited lookbook for this collection, Akpos
Okudu has grown as a designer and confidently creates the type of clothes
she passionate about; pieces that women LOVE to wear, WANT to wear and CAN
afford to wear. For the first time, she also delves into the world of
accessories with a unique range due to be launched shortly.
Shot on location at the gorgeous Bishop’s Cottage, Lagos, the pieces
explode with colour, zest and joie de vivre. Working with signature
fabrics like brocade, silk and satin, the designer plays with colour
blocking (with the jewel tone Eki dress and Eniye tanks), structure (with
the Oroma jacket and shorts) and draping (with the April dress).
The results are fun, easy pieces that flatter and translate easily from day to
evening. And at affordable prices, yanga doesn’t have to pain J
