Nigerian fashion industry is the next big thing to boost the economy. The fashion industry as it is now is meeting the international standards. Out of the many rising brands, I find a few that tickles my fancy!
I’m not all out for the brands that have made it to the top but brands that are on their way there. Let’s dive in!
RÉ LINE by ORIRE OMATSOLA
I find this brand very interesting. I love everything about their collection at the LFDW (Lagos Fashion Design Week). What attracts you to their brand is the print patterns or what seems like “tribal” inscriptions on the fabric. By this alone, you know a RE LINE brand when you see it.
I love the story behind the collection, it’s a bit of androgyny but still soft and playful. Their style is quite simple, comfortable, cool and chic. For the active woman, you get something of comfort and class and for the man on the move, there is something contemporary, neat and classy.
The colour combination is everything! From soft pastel colours to bright and bold colours. I love everything about this brand and I see them flying high! Take a look at some of the designs!

2. ERILYN BY TEMITOPE
I can simply say if you love corporate fashion and still want to look cool in them, then Erilyn by Temitope is your go-to brand for that. I love the concept behind every piece especially when she combines African print fabrics with plain fabrics.
Her style is definitely modern classic fashion and it’s timeless too!. Throwback to the time she styled Ozinna Anumudu in a print-on-print classic style. Absolutely on point! I have been looking forward to the day I’d wear an Erilyn fabric. Let me stick to the ones I can afford for now…LOL. Did you also know she recently extended her brand to the kids. It’s called ERILYN KIDS.
