Northern Belle is owned and headed by designer Salmah Ahmadu who grew up painting and drawing as a past time until she realized the potential of something much more impactful through her art in form of fashion designing. Since then, she’s continued to tell stories through her beautifully made clothes.
Northern Belle finally reveals their first collection tagged ‘Nuanced’, featuring breath taking designs that cover the Northern Belle mantra of chic and elegant.
The collection, which is said to be inspired by the designer’s childhood memories and her travelings over the years, has quite a number of gorgeous pieces that embrace femininity.
Evening gowns with drapes, layers, twists, embroidery and fur are made to show off the uniqueness of every woman. Well tailored mermaid gowns with plunging necklines, a jumpsuit and a floor length gown with bell sleeves are some of the pieces in this lineup.
