The creative well from whence Ihotu was drawn must have been filled with charm and beauty. Those two words define the collection which is feminine and unapologetically pretty. Their clear lines and movement speak of comfort, a testament to the expert finish and use of fabrics; Lace, Ankara and Accessories used in carefully tempered ways so as not to overwhelm the concept. The different pieces come together as part of a collection, yet stand on their own, bold, confident and sure.
Ihotu means love. A deeper meaning reads ‘purity of the heart’. Ihotu shines in a lovely non-fussy way; the love the designer Josephine Akioyamen poured into it is clearly evident.
