Nigerian designer, Ayo Van Elmar has named his Spring/Summer 2015 collection “gods and dolls“. He describes it as the love a man has for a woman whom he tries to grasp.
“Smitten by an Antwerpic daze, he is caught in a trance that unveils his lady as a goddess. He desires to worship her indisputable glamour, elegance and beauty“.
“She lifts him into another world, a playful doll he seeks to join and yet elusive to his grasp. Her ways remain mysterious to him. Is she real or surreal? She mesmerizes him with her enigmatic personality, which he cannot read. He dreams of her as a doll, he dreams of her as a goddess, he rolls in a bubble of adoration for her, but yet he struggles within. He is conscious of her strengths, that she is the pillar upon which the entirety of his being relies“.
