Virgos Lounge Peacock Collection Look Book

April 6, 2011

Fioye Akinsola, Oyeyemi Wemi-Akinsola and Nike Ajanaku, three Nigerian UK-based fashion designers born under the horscope sign Virgo, have release the Sophie Pycroft-snapped look book for their Virgos Lounge Peacock womenswear collection.  (Truly loved their last collection, by the way!) For their latest Look Book Virgos Lounge featured their favorite model Omowunmi Gbadamosi. The Peacock Collection debut online on Friday March 31th and can purchased on their e-commerce site as of April 1st. Peacock by Virgos Lounge has a little of everything for the stylish woman and for their celebrity favorite client Angela Simmons.

Each uniquely-made piece from Peacock by Virgos Lounge is named after their favorite celebrity fashionistas such as Victoria Beckham, Dawn Richard, RihannaVanessa Simmons, and Solange Knowles. This is something I couldn’t help but notice about the collection. That’s just assumption and I’m sticking with it! Oye did say that she and her co-founders would love to see either Solange or Rihanna in their designs.

I spoke with Oye of Virgos Lounge briefly. She said her dream Virgos Lounge celebrity clients are Rihanna, Solange Knowles and the Simmons sisters. She also let me know that the label plans to launch a bridal fashion line in the future. Can’t wait to see that sure-to-be wonderful collection!
