From US Superstar Triathlete Kim Kilgroe, to Grammy award winner Melanie Fiona, to former Essence magazine editor Susan Taylor, all the way back to Nigeria with international personality and actress Omotola; Iconic Invanity is fast becoming the brand of choice for discerning fashionistas across the globe.
As the visionary behind the brand’s masterpiece designs, Creative Designer Nancy Nwadire never disappoints with each stunning collection, including the brand’s “latest work of art – Elements.” Nancy founded the brand in 2009 and has since quickly become recognised in fashion across Africa, her work is rapidly rousing the attention of international observers in the industry for her standout talent and unique creativity.
Nancy’s interest in fashion started at an early age as she fondly recollects: “I first fell in love with the art of dress-making the day I watched my mother cut and hand sew my twin brother and sister’s coming home outfits, they were the cutest pair of checked pastel blue cotton dresses with yellow smocking I had ever seen.” Inspired by the handmade garments of her mother growing up, Nancy coveted her widely esteemed dress-making techniques that are easily identifiable in the brand today.
An alumni of the London Institute (an affiliate of the London College of Fashion), Nancy boldly creates the perfect fusion of colours, fabrics and empowering fit to ultimately produce timeless pieces that ooze elegance, class and poise for the distinguished individual. An apt representation of her luxury design label, Nancy’s inspiring design ethos and aesthetic pieces are truly iconic.
Having featured in the likes of internationally renowned Arise Lagos Fashion Week, British Vogue as well as Tatler magazine, in just a short spectrum of time Iconic Invanity has become a much sought after brand.
The brand is truly set to make waves across the international fashion industry over the next year with rapid expansion plans in the work, a team of dedicated staff and Nancy’s continued passion and eye for detail, the best is yet to come from this bespoke couture label.
