Ewemade Erhabor-Emokpae (Shakara Couture)

Tolani Nkili Onajide of N-K-I-L-I.

Founded in 2004, the Shakara Couture Label is a family-run business with a design team led by the creative director Ewemade Erhabor-Emokpae. On attainment of her Law degree from the University of Lagos, she sought to follow her passion and attended the London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins to be professionally trained in millinery, dress-making, fashion illustration and personal styling. The label is recognized for being heavily influenced by vintage glamour. The style of the house is inspired by the timeless elegance and fashion of the 1920s to the 1950s; a time where flattery of the female form was celebrated as the focal point of design. It is a fusion of African and Western vintage fashion using African tribal print, tie and dye, Lace, Embroidery and beadwork. For more information, visit: www.facebook/Shakara-Couture
