The Komole is an assemblage of designs for bridal and occasional wear drawing upon the mood and romance evoked by royalty and royal weddings through the ages. Komole – which means to dance- is occasion wear. The Komole Kandids is the latest collection in a journey of innovation with Aso oke which began in 1998. The Komole assemblage has over 20 years of research and development put into it to achieve this impressive and deep bridal wears for the beautiful African woman. The design combines Aso-oke and lace and in the words of the creator of this beautiful piece, Deola Ade Ojo,“It is not just a parallel to the European lace but a usurper… making the new design even better than the sum of its parts. There is no need any more to have Aso-oke and a lace outfit as two answers to an occasion’s fashion demands.We have combined both into one and by so doing transcended, making the new creation even better than the sum of its parts. The new fabric motifs and the fashions that we have formed them into elevate the wearer to royalty level, while still keeping her culturally grounded – I believe that this is what true class and elegance is about, shining in the form of a glow rather than a tinselly shine”.
The Komole range and Komole signature motifs have taken “occasion outfits” to a new fashion apex with unparalleled painstaking craftsmanship and attention to detail. The colour palette is a continuum from pastels to jewel tones, with iridescent sheen arising from silk ‘shot-through’ Aso-Oke weaves. Silhouettes flatter into a demure hourglass shape with floor length dresses that stagger the onlooker. “Komole” has undeniably given “Aso Oke” an invaluable face-lift and identity worldwide and is original from conceptualization to crafting to final creation. This unique fabric is one that deeply imbibes our African culture and can really be said to be indigenous to the people of Nigeria and by extension Africa.
