Obakki Fall 2011
Luxury brand Obakki debuted its Fall/Winter 2011 collection in the divine light of St Andrew’s Wesley Church in downtown Vancouver. Fitting with the classic gothic church, an old world feel was present throughout the collection. Beautiful neutral bone and antique white contrasted against charcoals and black with pops of bright reds and earthy ochre. Luxurious embroidered and woven fabrics played alongside light, breezy sheers and chiffons. Shirts and dresses with tight silhouettes gave way to flowing billowy skirts and blouses, while well-tailored coats and trousers lent structure to the romantic glamour of the raw feminine styles. All of the pieces were a perfect balance of playful, sexy and luxurious. It was a collection that every woman would feel comfortable in.
As an added bonus to the evening, ticket proceeds benefited the Obakki Foundation, which supports humanitarian efforts in Cameroon. The foundation empowers people to be creative; using their thoughts, ideas, art and fashion, to make a positive change in their lives and those of the their family and friends.
