The collection is dedicated to the freedom fight of the legendary Nelson Mandela, it also serves a major transition of the 2 year old brand in the Nigerian fashion scene.

The creative director of the brand Apooyin Abiola employs zig zag patterns, vertical lines and print as a medium to tell a story of freedom creating casual, chick, simple, sporty and minimal ready to wear fashion pieces.

According to the brand, "The concept behind the collection is to create a fashion collection that brings about a release from the conventional and rather trite fashion ensembles into simple and minimal fashion pieces".
