Asakeoge Couture to showcase at AFWNY

Jun '11
It seems only yesterday where the talented young lady Asake Agoro launched the Asakeoge brand and already it has been acknowledged as a fast rising label to watch out for.

Coming runner up in the African Tourism Awards in London UK in it's first year and subsequently winning Best Female Fashion Designer 2011 beating other well known designers to the coveted Award. The label's unique and stand out designs have drawn the attention of fashionistas across the African, Europe and American continents and now has a growing clientele.

On July 15th Asakeoge will join other emerging and established international fashion brands to show selected pieces from her couture and ready to wear collection from the 2011 collection at African Fashion Week New York. From Thursday, July 14th to Saturday July 16th, 2011, Adiree Fashion Agency will host Africa Fashion Week New York, NY. AFWNY which received an official proclamation from the mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg is a luxury multi-day event created with the sole purpose of raising awareness of African Fashion.

The Asakeoge ready to wear collection has received rave reviews and selected pieces are available to buy from the website. The vintage philosophy is a re-visitation of the bestselling silhouettes that has made the brand a go to for fashion and events and an addition of eye-catching prints and tailored lines. Encapsulating the everyday needs of the fashion forward woman; Pieces from work wear to evening; Tea party Sundays to Club Fridays the limited edition ready to wear is a solution to the fashion victim who finds it easier to follow high street trends as AsakeOge instead designs and produces original, contemporary pieces that set the trend.

The ready to wear draws from her couture roots with exaggerated shoulders, cinched waists and sharp silhouettes. It celebrates the classic feminine hourglass shape with a hint of the tribal. With this collection we are saying less is more. An exaggerated shoulder here, a cinched waist there, a colourful pattern here and there. Classic, effortless elegance. Its more about the woman, how you carry yourself says a lot about you.
