Written By: MIM!—It's right around that time of year when our favorite African designers start revealing their collections for the next season, and we're very excited to see what is in store! First up is Nigerian designer Autumn Adeigbo, who released her "6 Nights With Jean-Michel" collection last week. Autumn says about her latest collection:
My latest collection—titled "6 Nights with Jean-Michel" [is] inspired by my protagonist's 6 nights affair with artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The collection incorporates my usual African influences and prints, and of course 5% of each sale is donated to healing sexual violence crisis in the Democratic Republic of the Congo- via Women for Women international. Examples of Basquiat's work (my favorite artist) is referenced in some of the shots. Please feel free to see the entire shoot at www.autumnadeigbo.com under the Fall 2011 collection gallery.
