“It takes a creative mind to find beauty in the mundane and wealth in the poorest place”. – Loza Maléombho

It’s hard not to see how upcoming Ivorian designer, Loza Maléombho was the winner of the Emerging Designer of the Year Award at this year’s Arise Magazine Fashion Week. Her edgy, highly desirable collection features a sumptuous array of West African prints. The quirky combinations of colour and pattern are offset by sculptural jackets and gillets. The simple, stylish accessories together with the over all muted tones give the collection an earthy feel. Though some well chosen splashes of colour jazz the collection up perfectly!
