Green Africa partners with award-winning Nigerian fashion houses for its uniforms
Green Africa is proud to announce that it has selected multi award winning fashion school, Zaris Fashion & Style Academy and internationally acclaimed Orange Culture for the creation of its crew uniforms.
Orange culture was started by Adebayo Oke-Lawal in 2011 to create a heady mixture of Nigerian inspired print fabrics, colours and contemporary urban wear. He has also completed editorial work for Vogue Italia, Nataal and WOW magazine among others.
Zaris Fashion & Style Academy was established in October 2011 with the vision of creating a platform for young Nigerians and Africans to hone their talents and express their creativity. The academy is a Federal Government of Nigeria YOUWIN recipient and the popularity of its website has been recognized by Google Nigeria. Its success has also been featured by major news networks.
In what is believed to be a first for Zaris Fashion & Style Academy and Orange Culture, the companies will work together in order to meet the objectives of the final design. The final designs will reflect the core values of the Green Africa brand and will showcase Nigerian design and African heritage to the world.
Luke Lovegrove, Chief Commercial Officer at Green Africa stated that “the two design houses won hands down with their elegant yet functional designs. We are looking forward to revealing our crew uniforms in early 2020 – a key element of our visual identity and another step towards our full brand launch.”
Adebayo Oke-Lawal, Founder and Creative Director of Orange Culture and Chris Aggreh, Chief Brand Officer of Zaris Fashion & Style Academy jointly said “The designs will embrace what it means to be African, incorporating innovative fitting with form and function. What we are doing here is ground breaking, we are show-casing modern Africa with our partners at Green Africa Airways and we are incredibly excited to be a part of their story.”
