  • Insider Notes

    • As seen on Maechi Aharanwa at the 2024 TONY Awards.

      Masterful creators of show-stopping silhouettes, Lagos-based Fruché never fails to deliver. The dramatic silhouette of their taffeta Bourgeois Dress is framed by a billowing cape that the label likens to a 'parachute.' The style features a barely-there napkin top detailed with knots and a mini skirt that's been gathered to create a playful poof structure. Complete your ensemble with strappy sandals and a clutch.

      - High-low silhouette, knot detailing, open sides, draped parachute back, slip-on
      - Taffeta
      - Artisanally crafted by female communities in the Delta State
      - Each piece is made to order and may take up to 2 weeks to complete
