Belois Couture has unveiled her styles for the new 2018 collection named Isudu. In Esan language – a language widely spoken in Edo state, this word means ‘bold’ or ‘courageous’. And this collection is intended for the bold woman.
But… ARE THESE CLOTHES REALLY ALL THAT COURAGEOUS???
Really though. The clothes on this collection are gorgeous. Absolutely.
We totally love all the looks from this collection. But ‘courageous’ is a rather strong term for the looks on the collection. We went through virtually all the clothes in it, and apart from the sheer outfits – by the way, sheer has been the order of the day in the fashion scene for a while so this is not entirely stunning anymore – and a couple other outfits that made us tilt our heads for a second or two, the other clothes were pretty regular, although very pretty. They were more or less prettier variations of everyday clothing.
Look 5- SALEWA ISUDU- ESAN- Courageous courageous- English. kəˈreɪdʒəs/ adjective Meaning- not deterred by danger or pain; brave. In Esan, my native language it means Courageous. The ISUDU collection is an edit that seeks to show the clothing items that our ideal courageous woman wears that’ll will make her standout, to compliment her big personality and successful life. She is a woman that has chosen a life of deliberate creation, to break out of the proverbial fold/mould. She has chosen to laugh in the face of adversity, chosen to dance in the rain, and chosen to uplift in a selfish world. She lives a life full of colour. Now, that’s courage. As with all giant strides, great feats, and unforgettable lives, she knows she must do this (living)with grace, vibrancy, elegance and style. With bold prints, familiar prints, and colourful,statement cuts, and eccentric pieces/designs, we have created an edit for our ideal ISUDU woman.

We really really like this one. It’s probably like our favorite dress from the collection!
And then there’s this too! We really do like this collection. Do you too?!
We just low-key feel like this collection could have been given another name apart from “courageous” because as gorgeous as this collection is, it does not do justice to the word “courageous”. Not exactly.
We’d still rock it though, For the bold woman.
