Nigerian designer Andrea Iyamah collaborates with supermodel, Oluchi Orlandi to recreate nostalgic memories of the Nigerian child.
For the shoot, the leggy model is sheathed in bright colourful Andrea Iyamah swimsuit pieces alongside perky Nigerian children.
“At Andrea Iyamah we celebrate culture through our monthly campaigns, this month of October following Nigerian Independence Day we wanted to celebrate the Nigerian childhood. The energetic, bright and free-spirited personality of a Nigerian child are elements we instill in our swimwear pieces using color. Oluchi’s energy, confidence and Nigerian story was a match made in heaven for this campaign.” – Andrea Iyamah – Creative Director, AI.
The shoot, which was done in Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria, blends with Nigerian childhood activities such as fetching water and traditional games.
