"I wanted a collection that was sultry, confident, risky and yet elegant."

What inspired the collection?
"I wanted a collection that was sultry, confident, risky and yet elegant. The collection was shot in GRA, Lagos Nigeria whereby the model on the railway symbolizes the knowledge of knowing the risk of taking particular steps in life... but yet you take it anyway. In every collection I release, I try to tell a story about a stage of my life I'm facing....this stage is one of consistent motivation, effort and of course 'Ndu' (strength) " - Andrea Iyamah
