For Every Woman: Grey at the 2015 Lagos Fashion and Design Week

When Grey sent down their new collection at the ongoing Lagos Fashion and Design Week, I kept singing to myself, I’m every woman and it’s all about Grey…For me, a budding African fashion writer, the collection is on par with what is aesthetically divine about fashion and style from an African perspective. Whether you are working or going to church, Grey is for you. If you are simply a woman who loves style, Grey was totally made for you. There were feminine dresses in simple silhouettes that will dazzle the body of any woman, laser-cut silk pieces in a burst of citrus colors as well as laser-cut fringes at the bottom of an electric blue midi dress that were all spectacular to look at.Grey-LFDW-2015-108 Grey-LFDW-2015-107 Grey-LFDW-2015-106 Grey-LFDW-2015-105 Grey-LFDW-2015-104 Grey-LFDW-2015-103 Grey-LFDW-2015-102 Grey-LFDW-2015-101The colors on some of the pieces sent down the runway were truly inspired by mother Africa in vivid shades and patchwork designs using materials such as woven silk jacquard, when worn together, will celebrate any woman.As a lover of African fashion, I feel the spirit of Grey and she channels that which is truly African in inspiration and sensibility. African heritage is apparent in this collection and once I saw it, I instantly felt that she was thinking of me. Clearly, Grey has provided an ode to craftsmanship with this collection. She is truly leading the way in re-shaping the language of fashion from Africa. She also doesn’t have to explain this new collection to her audience. We totally get and love it!
