AFRICAN BEADED DRESSES

My Asho is a new online retailer created by Dolapo Shobanjo presenting distinctive, ethical pieces from African fashion designers to a global audience.  My favourite brand the site stocks is Eredappa, a label by Nigerian-born Eredappa Hart, who creates feminine beaded and lace concoctions handmade in her Lagos studio.  The African wax print and intricate beading come in a vivid palette of bright yellow, pink, blue, black and white glass or crystal beads layered over midnight blue and black French lace.

I love the blue beaded top to wear simply with black trousers or leather leggings and the dresses would make unusual wedding guess outfits.  It's a good site to bear in mind if you like discovering new labels, supporting up-and-coming designers from around the world and wearing something unique you can't find on the high street.
