According to the elegant creative director, Omaatu, ‘Adire Tuntún’ which simply means “New Adire” births a dazzling array of ready to wear pieces and evening gowns, with striking emerald and shadowy patterns.


Omaatu has a special place in her heart for African prints and African fashion which she fuses into modern style, like seen in this collection.

Highlighting the indigo-dyed pattern, originated in Nigeria, which is the primary drive of the collection, its her way of paying homage to the African culture, accentuating cross-cultural fashion.

The designer, Omatu, who believes her works should be more popular than her personality said that the dresses are comfortable and youthful yet very stylish.
