Yemzi’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection was presented at Dalston Roof Park on 22nd September 2015.
‘Straight Out Of The City Via The Motherland’ which consists of 13 ready- to-wear looks saw the launch of the much anticipated ‘Gold Label’, Yemzi’s sports-luxe offering. The collection, constructed entirely of 34gsm and 69gsm silk sourced from Jiangsu is enticing, digitally printed and beautiful. The unique fashion print, available in ice blue, tangerine and emerald colourways, takes inspiration from tropical animal skins and their natural environment. The print was created from an acrylic painting before being digitalized.
Yemzi’s Founder and Creative Director Elizabeth ‘Yemzi’ Akingbade’s work is inspired by her hybrid British-Nigerian background. She was born in Hackney in the 90’s and raised in the sea-side town of Bournemouth by an English couple.
