Hand wash and hang to dry
Busayo simply means "addition to joy" in Yoruba (Southwestern Nigeria) and her line aims to add a little more joy to any woman's wardrobe.
Her collection is a celebration of African fabrics and textiles and aims to brighten the contemporary American woman's wardrobe with its interpretation of the vivid colors and geometric patterns of traditional African fabrics into modern shapes. Busayo aims to encourage and contribute to the development of African fashion scene and African fabrics in Nigeria through ethical production of her garments.
Busayo grew up in Ile-Ife, a college town in Southwestern Nigeria and she has vivid memories of visiting markets with her mom, picking fabrics and working with tailors to create pieces that were uniquely hers. The line is inspired by this tradition of creating personalized and unique garments, by the creativity of Nigerian artisans and their rich textile traditions.
Busayo seeks to continue the tradition of creating personal and unique by fusing classic, Western shapes with Africa fabrics- -wax print, Ankara and Batik-Adire. All of the African fabrics used in the collection are sourced from Southwestern Nigeria and tailored by professionals local to the region in compliance with fair trade principles. Each piece comes with its own character and is made in limited quantity to ensure originality.
Busayo strives to bring the entire spectrum of hues into the American closet and dare each woman to embrace just a little bit more color.
