Orente — which is a Yoruba word for a beautiful or loyal woman — gives a little glimpse into the way the designers intend for the collection to feel. Still rooted in the batik and cotton fabric choices, the Orente SS23 collection features a vibrant selection of pieces that make its wearer radiate beautifully.

The pieces, which include wide-cut trousers and flowy kimonos, feature a combination of two Adire fabrics in different colours that look good separately but even better together. Most clothes can be ordered in one’s choice of colour combinations, making the collection as customizable for women as possible.

Bridging Culture and Couture at Fashion’s Finest Africa

Going by the collection’s title and fabric choices, the Orente collection is heavily rooted in African culture and tradition. The decision to showcase this wonderful set of pieces at Fashion’s Finest Africa’s The Epic Show turned out to be a great one, not just for the good reviews.

“Culture to Couture” was the theme for the event, and the Orente collection was in line with this as the use of Adire fabric turns them from cultural heritage to a fashion statement. Adaeze Onu and Ibukun Oluleye, through their craft, continue to make their mark in the fashion world with pieces of Nigerian and African culture.
