“My passion for individuality is apparent in every work I create, for me the wow-factor is non negotiable in my hand made garments. I love to enter a room and make heads turn.”
AsakeOge Couture was founded by Asake Agoro from Nigeria. The Label was launched February 2009 at the London Metropolitan Fashion and Dance Charity Show when Asake was invited to come up with a collection for the fundraiser.
A third generation seamstress, growing up around the creative energy in a couture household enabled her to design and make garments for herself from the age of 15. she honed an innate skill by working with local tailors to produce one-off pieces that soon drew the attention of those around her who requested to have garments made for themselves.
The Asakeoge label has since styled artists and personalities for events and went on to be runner up for the African Tourism Awards. Asake has also been nominated for the Best Female Fashion Designer for the BEFFTA Awards 2010.
If I could bring back any fashion trend,it would be harem pants. You gotta love them. Comfortable, hides the lumps and bumps. MY male friends detest them but i think they should NEVER go out of fashion.
