With her tenth collection, Creative Director of Eki OrleansHazel Aggrey-Orleans, found inspiration in her rich Edo Nigerian heritage while creating the pieces for Spring/Summer 2019. She used the traditional Edo sword, the Eben, as the design focal point of the stunning prints in the aptly named Eben SS19 collection.

Designed with the modern woman in mind, the Eben collection features a combination of versatile separates and gorgeous kaftans that make it light and easy to travel with. Featuring her signature elegant silhouettes that project sophistical and subtle boldness, each piece in the Eben collection is a homage to the beauty of the female figure.  The luxurious silks of the collection are brought to life by her interpretation of the intricate designs of the Eben sword, which tell a beautiful story of the Edo culture.

As is customary with each Eki Orleans collection, the story of the print drives the meaning behind the collection. This is then married with sublime silhouettes to create a powerful fashion story. The Eki Orleans SS19 Eben collection follows in this same tradition.
