Vintage Love- Jewel By Lisa


Jewel By Lisa first unveiled her “Vinatge Love”  collection during ARISE Made in Africa show at the New York Fashion Week.
The collection takes us back to the days of yore, the 60s to be precise -a time characterized by independence and growth, a time of change and promise. With the emergence of great novelists Chinua Achebe and Wole Soyinka and the development of musical genres high-life and afro-beat with the masters Victor Uwaifo and Fela Kuti danced and swayed to at soirees; a time when modern architectural influences paved new streets

 
The “Vintage Love”  collection revisits the past, celebrating heritage and culture, as it reworks and reinterprets traditional Nigerian menswear and key pieces within that era into modern female silhouettes.
