My father will argue that dark skinned people should wear bright colours. The Melanin collection proves beautifully that dark skinned people can go for dark tones.

House of Jahdara’s Melanin collection’s emphasis is on the varying shades of brown from saddle brown to firebrick to the shades of sienna with a mix of bisque colours and dark salmon.

What the Melanin collection lacks in color, it makes up for in flamboyant design and detail: big collars, structured sleeves, pleats, plunging necklines and dramatic belts, and flared pants with slits.

Nigeria’s House of Jahdara’s Melanin collection is classic and different in a sophisticated and elegant way.
