"Akwaocha" means "white cloth" when translated from the Nigerian Igbo language. This bohemian unisex tunic with exaggerated long sleeves is crafted by local artisans in Nigerian cotton and is finished with unique cowrie buttons and loops and a bright multi-color pocket lined with feathers.

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.
