Lanre DaSilva Ajayi (LDA) Spring/Summer 2013 "Butterflies" Collection

The Lanre DaSilva Ajayi (LDA) Spring/Summer 2013 made a debut at the Lagos Fashion and Design Week on the 27th of October 2012.

The collection takes inspiration from Butterflies one that the brand for the last two seasons have come to adopt in its collections. For this collection, LDA has specially designed Butterfly prints in various textures of silk fabrics.

The choice of Butterflies for the designer symbolises many things from the hope of resurrection, to the reminder of the ephemerality of life which is also a main inspiration for the collection. Each piece in this "Butterflies" collection is best viewed as a symbol of beauty, femininity, and the ability to be ever changing.

The designer explains her love for Butterflies, she says "I love Butterflies, and I always have. Whenever I see one, I always have to stop what I'm doing to admire it. These fragile, colourful insects are a symbol of grace, beauty and elegance. I believe that if a butterfly lands on your shoulder, it's considered a sign of good luck".

Other LDA's signature fabrics such as Lace, Velvet, Sequin and Silk have been used to compliment these Butterfly prints. Also, this collection again goes to affirm that the brand's pieces translate internationally as each piece is wearable across Africa, Europe and America with the collection coming in beautiful summer dresses, chic separates of skirts and blouses and more glamorous and heavily hand embellished evening pieces. Either way a woman decides to wear these pieces; day or night, it works stunningly well.
