An ever present and highly respected force in the Nigerian fashion industry, Deola Sagoe’s newly launched brand of jeans reaffirms her position at the summit of Nigerian fashion. This iconic African designer continues to reinvent herself, and it is no wonder she remains one of the most acknowledged and recognizable designers to come out of the region.
She has in the past 25 years shown that African designers can match that of any other designers in the world, stitch for stitch. With the verve and panache with which every inch of fabric is skillfully mended into a colourful work of art, she continues to aspire for greatness and inspire greatness in others.

Her latest designs can be described as Nigeria’s answer to any brand from any top designer in the world.
With the opening of her flagship store both home and abroad, we are set to see Deola Sagoe continue to push boundaries and reach new frontiers in 2013, as she paves the way for a new generation of African designers.
We leave you with images of models from the ISIS Models stable donning her latest brand.

Ralphie has no memory of a phlegmatic moment from childhood but grew up to be described as composed, 'calm, cool, and collected', controlled, serene, tranquil, placid, impassive, imperturbable, unruffled... loves reading, writing, traveling, making friends and sharing thoughts. When he's not working on projects and executing startups, he is researching and writing.
