Sai Sankoh, a Sierra Leone fashion brand released its new collection “Portrait of A Lady” for its resort 2020 campaign. The collection features the brands signature kaftans with sultry and absolutely comfy ready-to-wear gowns.
Just like Tiffany Amber’s SS20 collection, Sai Sankoh draws an interesting inspiration from nature. In a press release statement, the brand designer and owner Sai Sankoh said she was excited about the collection.
“Iam extremely excited about this new collection which is hands down my favourite! My first collection focused more on what I wanted but this is a combination of my client’s needs and my personal style. My signature pieces are the voluminous goddess Kaftans, but it was also fun to play with more separates and gowns. So much love and dedication has been put into this and I hope to see my brand propel to the next level and continue to make my customers excited and be proud of what they are wearing”
With a Tuscan sunset and a floral background, the collection was shot in Dallas, described by the designer as her best work so far in terms of pushing creative boundaries and her vision in life.
Greatly inspired by her travels from Italy and Africa, the globally renowed brand was originally themed “A tourist in Tuscany”. With the global COVID-19 pandemic plans to shoot in Italy, March 2020 were delayed.
The nurse turned designer Sai Sankoh is a native from Sierra Leone in West Africa. Her eponymous women’s wear brand was launched in November 12, 2018 with a line of kaftans made and produced in India. With a huge list of international clientele, her designs have been featured in magazines such as Ebony, Vogue Italia, Essence etc.
