I was just on Bella Naija, and there was an article of another designer posting a lookbook from their new collection. As you know, fashion houses typically make collections by seasons - Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer. Most, if not all Nigerian designers follow this schedule as well. But on most of those posts, readers leave comments asking...
"Which one is Winter collection? Do we have winter in Nigeria?"
"What is Summer? It's always Summer in Naija jo!!!"
So here's what I'm thinking - would it be totally crazy to have Nigerian seasons dictate collections made specifically for the Nigerian climate? See examples below...
"Introducing the new 'Jules by Berry' RAIN 2014 collection?"
"Have you seen 'Berry Bridals' 2015 DRY collection?"
"Oh boy, DakBerry's HARMATTAN 2013 collection is too cool for school!"
Lol, yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah. It doesn't quite roll off the tongue very nicely.
What do you think?
