Nirvana, a word from the ancient Sanskrit meaning “to blow out”, “liberation” or “freedom”. It describes a state of profound peace of mind and release from suffering.

In this attempt, emerging fashion brand “awe! Lagos” presents a fashion collection dedicated to the freedom fight of the legendary Nelson Mandela, it also serves a major
transition of the 2 year old brand in the Nigerian fashion scene.

The creative director of the brand Apooyin Abiola employs zig zag patterns, vertical lines and print as a medium to tell a story of freedom creating casual, chick, simple, sporty and minimal ready to wear fashion pieces.

“The concept behind the collection is to create a fashion collection that brings about a releases from the conventional and rather trite fashion ensembles into simple and minimal fashion pieces”.
