We’re Putting You On to Nigerian Womenswear Brand, Aminda

by Lois Geal 

The name Aminda embodies our essence, it is derived from "ami," meaning "to love," and "-inda," signifying "deserving of."

Aminda celebrates the modern woman - confident, classy, and always ready to make a statement. Their mission is simple: to provide outfits that not only enhance natural elegance but also reflect personality.

They believe that every classy and confident woman understands the power of fashion. With this in mind, they curated the “Rouge” collection.

The collection is inspired by the fierceness and vibrant energy of the colour red. It tells a tale of sophistication, confidence, and unapologetic style.

Titled “Rouge”, red is a hue that stimulates, energises, and amplifies physical presence, invoking a sense of passion and desire. 

The collection also draws inspiration from the Robert Wun AW21 and Issey Miyake 87 campaigns. 

The Creative Director of the campaign chose the title “Rogue as Red,” incorporating a movement to show liberty and freedom of the modern woman.

The “Rogue” collection is not just about a striking colour scheme, either. Aminda makes sure to always use exquisite tailoring and innovative design to create pieces that will empower the wearer. Think sharp silhouettes, clean lines, and unexpected details that will always add a touch of intrigue. 

Each item of clothing has a different, giving its own purpose and meaning but leaving it up to consumers and customers of the brand to have their own interpretation on what it means to them. 

At Aminda, the brand too recognises the impact of fashion as a means of self-expression. They believe that every sophisticated and confident woman understands the significance of her attire in conveying her personality, as well as making a lasting impression. With this in mind, Aminda has curated the “Rogue” collection to cater to any and all people.

Fashion For a Cause: Brands That Stand with Palestine and the history of fashion as a form of Activism

by Oana-Maria Moldovan For over two months, there has been an ongoing genocide war in Gaza. To simplify a long and horrific issue, the situation that started, on a larger scale, around one hundred years ago, and has only become amplified since October 7th 2023. Taking place around the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Israel–Lebanon border, the armed conflict is between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups.  The problem is about “stolen” land. Said land is seen as an important holy part of both religions involved. But really, how holy can we consider a land to be, if people kill other people for it? It’s important to remember that this genocide is about three things: forced occupation, zionism, and religion. It’s also important to remember what ethnic erasure is. This terrible expresion, also known as cultural or ethnic assimilation, refers to the process by which the distinct cultural or ethnic identity of a particular group is gradually diminished or erased, often due to ext

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”. Then, things go one of two ways.  Either a) they decide I am too high maintenance and no longer palatable, or  b) they choose to never look further than the surface and are content to date the idea of me rather than the real me. There is something rather interesting, perhaps funny, about my situation. It is in no way unique. I have met so many people who constantly dealt with the same problem. Even funnier still, is the fact that there is a trope that simultaneousl
