Zizi Cardow’s bold and beautiful S/S collection
By Jemi Ekunkunbor
Ace designer, Zizi Cardow, last weekend in Lagos, presented her Spring Summer Collection to a select audience at the Maison Fahrenheit in Victoria Island.
The collection which can only be described as bold and audacious saw Zizi’s 20 years experience as a creative person packed into the work.
Her signature mini dresses and skirts, trains and black gothic pieces, dotted the collection that was so Zizi.
The collection was so summery and extremely feminine; soft, flowing, and provocative with romantic details of frills, flounces, neckties, exaggerated puff sleeves and interesting cut-outs.
An interesting highpoint in the presentation, was the male collection that revealed a two piece regular and asymetric agbada and tunic made from chiffon.
The employment of chiffon in crafting this old style, gave a new look and definition to agbada. It was novel, it was soft, it was flowing.
Zizi clad in a green dress, and escorted by the amazing models, closed the show as she danced on the makeshift runway to the admiration of her audience.
Members of the audience which included Senator Florence Ita Giwa, showed appreciation for a collection that was all all fun, bold and glamorous.
