MONUMENTA - Emerie Udiahgebi


This collection seeks to remind us of simpler times, soaked in dreams of what we perceived as the “mysterious glamor and power of adulthood. We had the most vibrant romances in our heads, filled with glamor, grandeur and glass slippers.


Being overcome with nostalgia during the process of the creation of this collection, I pulled from the brand archives and created garments reminiscent of my earlier works.


Dark colors, Second skin silhouettes, “barely there” risqué garments with edge-defying illusion cut outs, soft drapes, sequins, and delicate deliberate laces.

Pulling love elements from my childhood, My Michael Bolton obsessed father with his love for jackets with the soft inner linens that always felt like heaven.

My mother’s love for prim short jackets, spandex tights, cowl necks, and delicate laces, my early obsession with plastic dolls and how it grew to birth my fascination for the femme form ,I sought to tie these elements together to create dependable,sturdy,and yet delicate looking garments and accessories that inspire feelings as much as they photograph well”.
