As the brand ambassador & face of Africa Fashion Week Nigeria 2015, Oreka is showcasing the evolution of the traditional style from Western Nigeria to launch a competition for the fashion event this May.
The pretty media personality shred her own submission for the contest saying;
“One of my favourite things to do whenever I get the chance to is to look through old family photos. It is the only real invitation you get to look at the lives of the people you know now & see who they were long before you came along. Through pictures, you can imagine who they were, their hopes, dreams, the shy and the Alan Poser.”
“Some pictures through clothes and attitude depict clues about the lives they lived, the government regime of that decade, socioeconomic position of the people and how they rebelled against conformity. Fashion is a part of who we are. Our evolving culture is woven in the fabric of everything we wear today and pictures beautifully show just how far that thread connects us to generations“.
