Hazel Aggrey-Orleans is the German-born, Nigerian-raised and London-dwelling creator behind this unique label.
Drawing her inspiration from the colour and the buzz of Lagos city’s chaotic streets, the self-taught designer’s first experiment with African and Indian fabrics produced a stunning scarf collection.
Her creativity has evolved to dazzle fans at Brighton Fashion Week and beyond. Critics at Bella Naija and Style House have adored her coveted blends of silk and vibrant prints.
In a just under 2 weeks time, Hazel will participate at the second annual CamerCouture Fashion Showcase a funky style hub organised by Votre Avant Garde (VAG) a marketing and PR company producing bespoke events for corporate and private clients.
The show is a platform for emerging as well as established African designers to connect with international fashion marketers, buyers and enthusiasts. The shows are out of the box spectacles that portray the richness, glamour and class of African vogue and culture.
Set in London's triendiest spots, the annual CamerCouture shows are glitzy and media packed with representatives from the BBC to Sky News!
For this years' show, they have gone international to include participating designers from all over Africa rather than just Cameroon and their theme is "African Decadence" to portray the opulence and grandeur that Africa is.
October 16th is the date, Shoreditch Studios is the venue and the time is 6pm.
Check out some of Hazel's pieces and you can also catch her at the show.
