New York-based Nigerian designer, Teni Tia Adeola was among the many that showcased her designs at the New York Fashion Week.

With a background in Art History and a deep interest in the Renaissance period, Adeola aims to create bold, wearable art for women, re-conceptualize history through fashion and include people of color in classical visual narratives and above all pave a new future by empowering women in her community.

Her debut New York Fashion Week runway show on February 7th is proof of continued trending in the right direction

Despite being only 22, Adeola has established her brand and earned partnerships with Nike as well as nods of approval through Teen Vogue’s Generation Next and 21 Under 21 programs.

With a fanbase that boasts women like Gigi Hadid, Lizzo, Dua Lipa, Cara Delevingne, Kali Uchis, SZA, and Lorde, Adeola is on the scene and clearly ready to make her mark with key looks from her Autumn/Winter 2020 collection including an intricately hand-beaded two-piece, floor-length dress that closed the show, a sequin and feather jumpsuit made with custom fabrics from Dubai, her signature ruffle silhouette played across sleeves on jackets and tops, skirts, and dresses in bold, vibrant colors like red, blue, and pink.
