With each completed collection, designers are faced with one question, “What was your inspiration?” They often respond with a specific reference to a historic piece of art, music or iconic film. But in spite of their seasonal inspirations, there’s always one thing that stays on their radar: their muse.
It’s the singers, actresses, socialites, and indisputable beauties that help bring life to the clothes these designers create. Their muse takes it beyond the runways and gives it life. And while the designers of yore may simply have had just one muse, those working today collaborate with several bold-faced names on the regular. Stars bounce from working with one fashion house to the next, and designers, similarly, often turn their heads to find exciting new talent. Before the tide turns again, what is notable and remarkable are the unbreakable celebrity-designer relationships between Derin Fabikun and Inidinma Okojie. Below are some pictures of Ini Dima Okojie, picture perfect, adorned in dresses by fablanebyderin.
