House of Silk was launched in late 2008 as a retailer of silk fabric and evolved into a fashion label using silk as the palette for their glam pieces. The label has evolved and now includes three lines namely Silk Glam,Native Retro and Saree Affair.
For Summer 2010, Jennifer Adighije of the House of Silk unveils the Sacred Collection aimed at giving summer a different taste of sunshine with Ethnic and Arab inspired pieces.
This collection is her attempt to add some funk to conventional African fabrics and Arab style. She draws inspiration from significant locations in the striking capital of United Arab Emirates; Abu Dhabi and also from the island flavour of Tenerife. The designs are made more captivating as she infuses traditional African prints to create garments reflective of the richness of both cultures.
We see illuminating drapes, floor length dresses that ignite fluidity in their flow, blacks, a touch of gold, which depict the customary shades of garments in the Arab regions.
I like that she displays diversity with a careful mix of different yet complementary fabrics. The lustrous one-shoulder maxi dress is definitely going in my wish list; It’s elegant, stylish and great for any function!
