Naimah Designs

My work is inspired by culture and tradition in African. It is also very famous where I come from in Ibadan, Nigeria. It is especially worn during special occasions like weddings. It is famous for its colors and glam and its ability to attract attention, hence I decided to add a modern touch to it. I started by taking pictures of Dublin city buildings and mainly work mainly from the photographs I took and the colour within the images, from daylight to night light.

I focused mainly/ on the pop of colours in the nighttime, also the patterns within the photographs I took to create my wave. I worked on an eight-shaft loom and I created all my samples on the same loom. I also played with a lot of colours as my inspiration came from⁠
