This week’s blog post features the stunning designs of Ivorian fashion designer Loza Maléombho. Her brand was founded in 2009, in New York City and later relocated to Côte d’Ivoire in 2012, however her designs and collections are available across the globe.
Her brand is best described as a fusion between traditional cultures/ sub-cultures and contemporary fashion. Her designs perfectly bridge the gap between traditional Ivorian fashion and modern fashion. This unique aesthetic and seamless fusion of cultures easily makes her one of this generation’s top designers to look out for.
The Lola Maléombho brand features stunning jewelry pieces, statement jackets, outerwear as well as handmade sandals. Her recent collection was featured on the current issue of Vogue UK, as one of the top five designers to watch out for at the 2017 Lagos Fashion week.
