The collection Bams are designs made with our local Guinea fabrics mixed intelligently with stripes pattern. According to the designer; ” stripes is not an ordinary pattern. It visualise the world. The world is a mixture and fusion of several ideologies, races and beliefs which blend and clash everyday. Just as stripes pattern, life comes with different moment side by side; the bright side and the dark side, the serious and the not too serious moments “. Also, she stressed that “although burgundy is a rich colour she chooses to work with burgundy because it connotes ambition and quest for power, identity and recognition. These themes are of utmost concern to all women across the world, most especially Nigerian women.Women are hustlers. They strive for survival, gender equality, identity and power. Burgundy as a colour echoes these theme more than any other colour.”
Bams as a collection embraces the simplicity and versatility of the world. Bams as a collection celebrates the beauty and identity of every woman.
