A family that sews together stays together. African inspired looks from Nigerian designer, Folake Majin and her daughters Gogo Majin and Miss Patigi Majin recently hit the runway for the first time at the Iko Hotel and Suites in Lagos, Nigeria. Three stunning collections were showcased: the Diamond Collection created by Folake Majin, the Earth Collection by GM4FM and the Midnight Rainbow by Miss Majin.

Together the three designers brought together bold African prints, vibrant Aso-Oke fabric, silk chiffon, duchess satin and leather to create a grand collection that is new, fresh and eye catching. The Diamond Collection is not just about the bling factor, its about beautiful clothes that endure and stand the test of time," explained Folake. "Its the 'forever' factor, the cur, the fit the integrity of the design."

Folake's "Schon Arik" fashion line hit the Nigerian fashion scene in 1988 and became one of the most well known labels in the Nigerian fashion industry. Her pieces are recognized for their stunning detail and complex designs and her inspirations typically come from very basic concepts that she turns into creative masterpieces. Majin later passed her passion for fashion to her two daughters Gogo and Patigi, as they've followed the fashion footsteps of their mother, who continues to be a trailblazer in the fashion industry today.

Check out a few of the stunning looks and highlights from their debut show.
