Nigerian designer Autumn Adeigbo, pronounced A-dayg-bo, grew up in New York with her mother sewing her dresses. Her mom’s creations won her the title of ‘Best Dressed’ in the fourth grade. After graduating from Spelman College with an Economics degree she followed her mother’s lead and her heart– to Parson’s School of Design.

After graduating from Parsons, Autumn worked as a stylist for four years: dressing celebrities for the red carpet, magazines and television. She even was a fashion assistant for a year at W magazine before venturing out to create her own line.

What we love most about Autumn Adeigbo’s feminine and fashion-forward line is that¬†5% of the proceeds from each dress sold goes to the healing of sexual violence crisises in parts of Africa.

It’s conscious, compassionate and chic at the same time. Can’t you just see one of these dresses paired with wooden platforms and a bright lip for summer?

    Good feature but the editor should have caught that the designer’s name is MISSPELLED. Should read Autumn Adeigbo, I almost couldn’t find her, thank goodness for Google “did you mean?” Sheeeesh.
