Bunmi Koko Spring/Summer 2011 show at London Fashion Week

Kicking off the Vauxhall Fashion Scout at Freemasons Hall Covent Garden was Bunmi Koko.
To celebrate the start of the show a lone Ekpe man danced in a bright red and yellow masquerade costume looking very much like a large pom pom.  It was hard to visualise the collection usurping this, but amazingly it did. 
Hear we saw no pretty summer pastels or girlie styles.
Colours are bold monochrome, bright reds and burnt ochre. Prints are Ekpe, leopard and tie dye designed to create fiery flames. The style epitomises the confident feminine woman who knows what she wants and aims to get it.  Titled ‘Matriarchy’ the collection celebrates female empowerment whilst fusing cultures of Nigeria and the UK.

This is power dressing with a wild twist – sharp tailoring, enhanced waists, and strong shoulders embellished with pom poms, beads and fringing. An eclectic mixture of fabrics and patterns are used together such as tweeds, organza and silk....
......– all accessorised with ornate feathered masks.

The black body con short dress with gold embellishments around the neckline and gold fringing on the skirt and tops of the arms. And of course the silk jersey Ekpe print fringed leggings in monochrome.
