Shop Africa: Zed Eye, Eki Orleans, Washington Roberts + Obsidian

2011 is certainly shaping up to be the year of e-commerce after all, with four exciting designers taking the plunge in the last few weeks alone. Look books are great, websites are better, but e-commerce is best. Here's a closer look at our top picks from Zed Eye, Eki Orleans, Washington Roberts, and Obsidian.

Zed Eye caught our eyes with this anything but basic African print dress complete with a feathery shoulder. While Zed Eye has its own e-store and select pieces at Agnes & Lola, several more are now available courtesy of ASOS Marketplace. Find your Zed Eye favourite here.

Eki Orleans knows a thing or two about print and silk and this delightfully layered piece hits all the right notes with close to 60 head-turning flaps. Get yours at Eki Orleans' newest stockist, Independent Boutique (pssttt, it's on sale!). You can also shop Eki Orleans at their e-store and Agnes & Lola.

Washington Roberts won us over with this mini that does the most - in a good way. We spy rooster feathers and form-fitting jacquard and we have a feeling you'll be the best dressed in the room. Shop more Washington Roberts pieces here.

Fresh off Music Meets Runway where Obsidian presented their Dux Femina Facti collection, this dress (and several others) is now available via US Trendy. At once chic and relaxed (peep the scooped back), the colourful frayed bottom had us at hello. See more here.

Which piece is your favourite?
