I want to take you back to October time and tell you that I have been sitting on this discovery since then, itching to spill my guts and announce to my loyal Fashionologist's, the latest collection to come out of the talents of the three Nigerian ladies that are the Brains behind Virgos Lounge.
Known for their contemporary twist on the vintage style taking over the fashion world, Virgos Lounge previous collection have been, by no means at all, a disappointment to their reputation. Their earlier 'Resort Collection' was a mix of rich hues, intricate embellishments and delicate designs that literally flew out upon its release. - And I have every expectation that their Christmas Carnival Collection will react just as good, if not better!
The reason I have been sitting on this information for months is because I had the privilege to be a part of the Christmas Carnival Collection and, along with three other beautiful models (one being a contestant from this seasons Britain's Next Top Model!), was the face of the editorial campaign for their collection. The second I got my hands of the pictures, I was immediately writing a blog posts in my head; but out of professionality and the preserve the revelation of the collection for VirgosLounge.com themselves, I have kept them under raps.
Wednesday 23rd marks the launch of their collection;
