The IGHÓ collection was my winning AFWT (African fashion week Toronto) student design competition 2016 collection. IGHÓ means wealth in Edo, and this collection was named after my mum whose name is Omonigho.
It’s not your average ankara collection. I incorporated some of my favourite fabrics like tulle and fringe with different textures, hand sewn appliqués and some beadwork. Overall it was a very fun collection to work on.
