What is not to love about this collection? It is ALL Shades of GORGEOUS and REFRESHING!!!!! Again, Style Temple has given us another reason to appreciate the intricacy of style while yet, soothed with it’s simplicity and mesmerized by it’s beauty.

I personally relate to the “IT” Spring/Summer 2017 Collection, having first seen some of the designs on the runway during the just concluded Heineken LFDW (Lagos Fashion and Design Week).

Runway – Lagos Fashion and Design Week

This collection reminds me of the completeness of a woman; her courage, versatility, warmth, heart, complication, vulnerability, purity, fear, femininity, all of that and more which she most times is yet to embrace as one, as her, WHOLE! It nurtures the belief within that, all of these qualities can be wrapped in one being and be absolutely beautiful still. I think that for me is what style is – a personal interpretation and this collection gives me that understanding.

In an article featured on Bella Naija, Style Temple gives a better understanding of the term ‘IT’ and why this collection is – “IT”.

“The collection, generally paints the idea of a blossoming flower that at it’s peak, reaches a full bloom, through our use of crafted appliques, innovative of-the-shoulder interpretation and fringe and tassel for movement.

For the most part, we go through life without knowing what ‘IT’ truly means. Alexa Chung was declared to us an international ‘it’ girl, and then Eku Edewor – Nigeria’s ‘It’ girl. We know we love them but more often than not we really cannot tell why we do.

Now, IT can be our source of confidence, identity or happiness or just something that we feel and recognize but can never place a name or description to it. It’s as intangible as it is tangible. It is multi-faceted and for that reason can mean different things to different people – but for the most part, we never come to know what ‘IT’ truly means.

For Og Okwonkwo, designer and creative director at Style Temple, IT is an action word; it is being, it is becoming; it is blossoming into her next season woman…”.

I absolutely believe!

Here are the amazing designs from “IT” Spring/Summer 2017 Collection by Style Temple; one of the most prestigious fashion houses in Abuja, Nigeria and founded by Ogugua Okonkwo. I hope you enjoy it as well as i have and take your personal interpretations too. *wink*

The technique and grace of the beautiful model – Mide of Zaharamodels (Zahara Model Management) also brought life to the lovely pieces.
