Fruché

Years before Nigerian designer Frank Aghuno launched his ready-to-wear line Fruché, he’d take his mother’s Ankara head scarves and practice sewing them into revealing outfits. Today, each collection is designed for Aghuno’s modern woman; his work features elegant silhouettes crafted from sumptuous Nigerian fabrics, designed to challenge societal notions of how Nigerian women are expected to dress.
