Autumn/Winter 2019: Winnie Ahupa

I got a couple of follows on Instagram, among them was a Nigerian women’s wear clothing brand, Winnie Ahupa. Thankfully when I had the chance to follow back, the network connection was going through. I went through Winnie Ahupa’s Instagram page and discovered the fashion brand had released excerpts from their new Autumn/Winter collection.

With its satin figure hugging, floor-length gowns with long slits and ruffle necklines, the collection is unlike the popular flapper fashion of the 1920s. While the flapper fashion was known for shift dresses, above the knee length and loose cuts, Winnie Ahupa’s designs are created in a sophisticated and classic style with the clothing designed to perfectly fit the woman’s form.
