Loza Maléombho is Ivorian by birth and origin but global and artistic in creations. Timelessly delivering astounding creative visuals through her collections especially this SS16 titled  Zaouli comprising of bold and structured designs.

The press release from  Loza talks about the collection with the following words.

Just like AW15 this collection explores the culture of Zaouli dancers from the Guro tribe of Northern Côte d’Ivoire, With fringe trimmings and a mask figure peaking in a very stylized fashion within the structures of some of the garments, this collection is sensual in the sense that it is inspired by Djela Lou Zaouli, a Guro princess who was re-known for her desiring beauty and for dancing very graciously. The silhouettes are more feminine than they have ever been in past collections.”

Bold features in this collections would be the very edgy modern look of the pieces but with serious african originality printed across every style; kente fabrics, cotton, cut outs are also seen in the collection not to forget the masquerade in the pictures,
