There is an appealing airiness to the clothes. Long, languid dresses with a 1930s sway with Duro Olowu’s signature prints—florals, polka dots, and a particularly charming butterfly print that covered a striking high-waisted pantsuit as well.

Indeed, even the most modest floor-length looks with full sleeves have an ease about them that belied their construction—the gorgeous blue floral number in the lineup is a good example, made with several layers of chiffon.

The African Millennials, also dubbed “The AM’s”, is a Reality TV meet Talk Show with a
cast of about 16 millennials from various African backgrounds. The unscripted program
will shock viewers with its raw perspective on social issues that plague both the Black
and African communities.

The campaign images were released in celebration of the second season of the African Millennials or the AM’s as they are referred to sometimes. All things considered, the styles were pretty dope and the group shots were on fire. as they explored a regal look for the cast, giving us some Ankara, because we are Africans afterall.

The cast (Nestreya, DJ YB, Kristia, Bawo, Lucy, Acrown, Francia, Buki, Senami, Tayo, DJ Love, Milan, and KMS) were shot by Joey Rosado of Island Boi Photography fame and styled by cast member Senami Atinkpahoun

The ‘Maame Fosua’ collection was named after his mother who happened to be the inspiration behind this set of designs. FIGS has a flair for loud colours of which this collection is not devoid of. Apparently, that is just his mother’s style which contradicts the modern man/woman’s choice of colours when it comes to clothing. He therefore uses this collection to reach out to his audience to be bold and daring and go for gold; rainbow style.

In order to make the designs fit for all occasions, be it work or church, to a date or a night out, he makes the effort to merge these colours with African prints and lighter fabric shades so as to say: ‘Do not dismiss loud colours altogether, find the right pieces to combine with and keep it glam’.  

The collection encompassed styles from the 40’s such as puff sleeves and maxi pants which are definitive of his mother. He merged these styles with current trends to produce a rather fashion forward ensemble.

Although “mummified” he did not leave the men out as there were definitely designs for them as well, including a trench coat for the chilly/rainy days. The unique feature of the collection is the boldly embossed brand logo on some of the outfits giving them a spectacular touch.

Adubea (Janet Oddoye) was born in England to a Danish mother with an eye for beautiful soft furnishings and vintage clothing, and a Ghanaian father, civil engineer by day and amiable socialite by night. At a tender age, Adubea was steeped in an aesthetic that was quintessentially Danish as well as being influenced by traditionally African social and moral codes of conduct.

Naturally gifted with her hands along with an inherent faculty for attention to detail, Adubea learnt from her maternal grandmother, how to crotchet, knit and needlework during her visits to Denmark.

Her education in a prestigious international school in Ghana broadened her cultural horizons and further reinforced her values of integrity, based upon the giving back principle from a position of privilege. But perhaps more importantly the flames of her love affair with Africa were fanned.

As a young mother and wife in London, she embarked on a seventeen-year career in direct sales, attaining senior directorship level. Her human resources skills, methodical thought processes and tireless work ethic evolved, as did the numerous teams under her mentor-ship.

However, her passion for all things beautifully hand crafted coupled with her thirst for design knowledge did not wane. She proceeded to enlist herself in various courses covering interior design, furniture upholstery and jewellery design, culminating in business skills: a holistic strategy eventually harnessed to introduce the world to the ADUBEA JENSEN luxury handbag line.

Adubea Jensen handbags are uniquely made using tiny beads which are woven together to form exquisite one- of-a-kind bead bags. The process is 100% handmade and a bag can take up to 50 hours to make. Their vibrant colors and amazing designs speak to the modern, fashionable and sophisticated woman. Coupled with the limited availability of each design, owning an Adubea Jensen handbag becomes an irresistible must-have.

Adubea Jensen Designs Limited, established only in 2014, encapsulates Adubea’s life journey. The beautifully chic accessories range is homage to her personal and cultural narrative to date.

The design led precision, muted hues, quality craftsmanship and flamboyant tones demanded by Adubea sit perfectly with her mentorship and training programmes.
