Everything needs a little revamp. Regardless of how much of
a staple, a little change is always good. On my trip to Africa I had the
pleasure of meeting a designer that was putting a new spin on the Nigerian traditional
attire known as iro & buba (top and wrap). She added pleats to the wrapper
almost creating a true wrap skirt appeal instead of the traditional long piece
of fabric. The silk colored fabric, low back-line and ruched detailed sleeve also
added a modern touch creating a new normal that transition from day to night,
and can be worn for numerous occasions.
