The 2013 Ihotu Collection
“Canadian based fashion house Fenix Couture was founded in 2009 by Nigerian-Canadian Josephine Akioyamen. It started as business specializing in haute couture in which it was very successful. As a result of the increasing demands of its clients, it branched into making ready to wear dresses to give a wider customer base the haute couture experience at affordable prices.
It retains a competitive edge in serving a global clientele. Fenix Couture designs, constructs, and markets dresses for ladies of high sartorial taste. The company maintains a special slant for working in print for cutting edge designs. The Ihotu (meaning love in Idoma (a ethnicity in Nigeria) collection is purposely styled by Fenix Couture to make elegant ladies bloom just like the cherry blossom flowers in bloom.
The 2013 Ihotu Collection covers an extraordinary array of styles in magnificently lively and prints colours designed purposely to accentuate the natural beauty of ladies everywhere. Indeed Fenix Couture is proud to stand by it “Made in Canada” resulting from its manufacturing ethics and fidelity to high quality to satisfy the need of its clients. This collection is absolutely gorgeous!”
