Somkele Idhalama is the perfect muse for Lisa Folawiyo’s AW17 ‘Daze of Summer’ collection

Foremost womenswear brand, Jewel by Lisa has teased pieces from its AutumnWinter17 Ankara Collection and we’re mighty excited about it for more one reason (or maybe more than one but let’s deal with this first).

Lisa Folawiyo picked our favourite girl as muse for this collection and we’re rolling in joy. Somkele Idhalama! The Nollywood actress who came and spoke to us with every fashion choice that she’s one to envy. Somkele did not begin from the scratch. She stormed the movie scene with one mission: set fire to red carpets.

How does one forget how she stole the show at the AMVCAs months ago in her custom made Andrea Iyamah outfit? Let’s help bring it back to your mind, just for a bit:

Does this sufficiently justify why we’re over the moon for Jewel by Lisa’s Somkele in Daze of Summer Collection?

The collection features midi dresses, shirts and blouses in mix-and-match Ankara and strong detailing with pom poms, asymmetrical cuts and heavy sequin work.
