This may need subtitles, post haste:
Spicey earthy tones mixed with sharp layers embody the pieces in this 2010 Autumn/Winter JAHAN collection. Orleans Designs continues to contemporise African texutres by fusing it with delicate silks.
Hazel Aggrey-Orleans, the creative force behind the label draws her inspiration from her colourful memories growing up in the culturally dynamic city of Lagos, coupled with her Germanic roots.
West African prints and symbols form the basis of her luxurious silk patterns instead of restricting herself to the traditional cottons.
Of mixed heritage, Hazel has cleverly combined her two worlds into her work. This results in more contemporary garments.
With Hazel’s continued passion for colours, she seeks to create bold unique pieces that cannot be found anywhere else.
