  • Insider Notes

    • The skilled hands of local artisans in Nigeria are responsible for Cynthia Abila’s seamless tailoring. Crafted from handwoven cotton, this blazer has a subtle stand collar and concealed fastening that lend it a modern, minimalist edge. Notice the hand-painted motif that references traditional masks of the Igbo people. Keep the striking fuchsia hue in focus by styling it with neutral shades or denim.

Nigeria

Designer Cynthia Otiyo-Abila’s clothing is created, from concept to construction, in Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja. She channels her passion for storytelling into the Cynthia Abila label, interpreting traditional subject matter for a modern audience. Collection narratives are rendered as standout takes on wardrobe classics like suiting and shirt dresses for the contemporary woman, produced by a predominately female team of artisans in handwoven silks and cottons.
