“I imagine a Komole bride. She is independent and in charge, but still demure and gentle like the current Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton… She honors everyone that looks at her with her way and that wow Komole creation! …She is the new light in all their lives!” Deola Ade Ojo
Over 12 years of research and development are ingrained into the Komole range (the original collection was launched in 2012), the result of which is a profoundly refreshing take on Aso-Oke and the look of the modern bride.
The Komole textile form addresses the same ideological desires that led to the development of lace in Europe in centuries past. Today lace has its parallel, in many ways it’s usurper, in this House of Deola signature style of Aso-Oke fabric – a fabric at the heart of a nation’s identity and consciousness.
“There is no need anymore to have Aso-Oke and a Lace outfit as two answers to an occasion’s fashion demands… we have combined both into one and by so doing transcended, making the new creation even better than the sum of it’s parts. The new fabric motifs and the fashions that we have formed them into elevate the wearer to princess level, while still keeping her culturally grounded – I believe that this is what true class and elegance is about, shining in the form of a glow rather than a tinselly shine” Deola Ade Ojo
The Komole range and Komole signature motifs have taken “occasion outfits” to a new fashion apex with unparalleled painstaking craftsmanship and attention to detail.
The colour palette is a continuum from pastels to jewel tones, with iridescent sheen arising from silk ‘shot-through’ Aso-Oke weaves. Silhouettes flatter into a demure hourglass shape with floor length dresses that stagger the onlooker.
The Komole Kandids collection also heralds a shift for the House of Deola family of brands, as the fashion house enters a new level of dialogue with its audience and fans through social media platforms.
Komole Kandids Series 2.
#GBOGH! - GO BIG OR GO HOME!
Drum roll please! This wedding ain’t over yet!
Komole Kandids Series 2 delivers an impossibly gorgeous, impeccably dressed lady who is still quite ready to get down (no pun intended) on the dance floor!
Social media, fashion followers, wedding planners and their clients, all have been agog over the last two weeks as the House Of Deola snatched up hearts and provoked dreams in would-be brides all over Nigeria!
And our piqued expectation has not been in vain. With the slight of hand of a practiced practitioner, Deola Ade Ojo switches the focus from the ‘faultlessness’ of the bride to the ‘raffishness’ of the wedding guest. The House of Deola has essentially given us the two parts of the Wedding occasion in the array of dresses. Series 1 engaged us in the classic beauty of the bride and the tradition of exchanging vows, and Series 2 takes over from there - now that they are joined together, it’s time to party, dance and for the unwed in the crowd to mingle!
The collection features a shortened skirt length, and simpler A-line silhouettes definitely allow for all kinds of moves on the dance floor.
“Those who know me well know that I like to dance… I have always loved it when you see an impeccably dressed woman - I mean a lady who really knows fashion, and she’ll just drop her clutch on her table and Komole! You know, go down low! Isn’t it always a surprise when you see that! I know the fellows in the house are always intrigued by this anyway!" Deola Ade OjoFeast your eyes on the sumptuous images of this collections end and get up to date with following the design house on social media. The House of Deola is apparently in generous mood and there are things in store for lucky fans this month.
