NKWO incorporate traditional local practices into the making of their unique pieces. Case in point: this Parachute Dress hand-dyed by the label’s artisans using time-honored Nigerian techniques. Designed in a loose, bubble-like silhouette, it has an elegant funnel neck, wide batwing sleeves, and a twist-front detail for a flattering effect. The drop waist and ruffled hem enhance its feminine feel, while the adjustable drawstring allows you to temper the oversized fit. Style it with pumps and a clutch for parties, switching to sneakers on the weekend.

Sustainable brand NKWO relaunched in 2012 in Nigeria, with a focus on the preservation of traditional craft while curbing the damaging effects of textile waste. Each ready-to-wear piece is crafted using traditional West African weaving, beading, hand-dyeing and embroidery. The designer created her own fabric—using a modern strip weaving technique—dubbed “Dakala.” This hand-loomed upcycled fabric has a distinctively rich feel and is featured in each collection.
