The Fayrouz L’original 2nd edition came to a close about a month ago, and crowned Team Meddlelane as the winners. However, that isn’t stopping the 1st runner up, Team HAI from pursuing their dreams in the fashion industry.
For their official debut, they present a creative & enchanting collection titled – “Tribe of Kevlan“. The collective is based off of the mythical ‘Royal Fairy’ in ‘Alice in Wonderland’, and photographed in a haunting & foggy garden.
The movie inspired the creative director, Sheye Oladejo, to explore creativity and the details in historical fashion culture during the medieval era, Celtic tradition & British folklore. This helped her envision unique, alluring and enchanting pieces showcasing the beauty of the ‘Royal Fairy’. Fabrics such as taffeta, charmeuse, brocade, cord lace, sequins and more were used to design ball gowns, draping dresses and more with dainty accents like floral headbands, fairy wings, statement ‘backlaces’ etc.
