Artsmith Collections has launched its first-ever diffusion line ‘EKÓ AKÉTÈ inspired by the familiar nuances in everyday Lagos living – from the lifestyle of the lady hawker to the “Owambe” party rocker. Speaking about the shoot, jewelry designer – Gbenga Ayo-Dada of Artsmith Collections explained;

Lagos is a potpourri of multiple cultural influences coming together to form the lifestyle of its inhabitants. We see cosmopolitan vibes joined in fashion matrimony with tribal sensibilities and giving birth to a very versatile style. Watch this space for more fabulous jewelry pieces from the collection, which features cocktail rings, bangles, necklaces, and brooches.

The shoot was made possible by the synergy between the stylist/jewelry designer, Gbenga Ayo-Dada of Artsmith Collections, Seyi Akinbola of Trans4maz Photography, Vivian Christopher of Da-vee’s Home Makeup Studio and the Models, Amilia and Awele.
