For well over two decades, the Nigerian designer has been showcasing beautiful pieces from her label, House of Deola.
One of Nigeria’s talented photographers Shola Ajisegbede of Sniper Ajix Photography has so much respect for Ms. Sagoe that he decided to gather a team for a fab shoot.
Shola reenacted the designer’s Genevieve Magazine cover.
Read Shola’s statement
“My love for magazines and love for good looking images fueled my passion for going deep with photography. I have always wanted to redo a magazine cover.
The idea was to study the cover star and recreate the cover and interprete it in our own way. For this particular project, the fantastic Deola Sagoe on the cover of the iconic June 2013 Genevieve Magazine seriously caught our attention.
I guess this cover can and will still stand the test of time.”
But the team doesn’t just re-enact the magazine cover, they also present us with more good snapshots
