Fast rising new African label Re-Bahia is run by a Nigerian mother and daughter team. The label is fresh with an eccentric vibe that speaks more to a spirit as opposed to just an age group. This obviously lies in the input from the creative’s behind the brand who bring 2 different generations pizzazz bunched up in one cool hybrid.
Their spring summer 2011 collection titled ‘Lola’ is special in many ways and a few would be the detailing which include their signature ‘uma’ threading, exposed zippers and vibrant fabrics. Another interesting point about the collection is that all the clothes are named in Swahili. This is part of the collection and was recently shown at the december 2010 LPM fashion showcase.
