YemiKosibah - I am a Couture Bridal and Eveningwear designer specialising in figure enhancing gowns that shape and flatter the wearer. With my signature use of corsetry and draping, I'm able to celebrate the female form by recreating the Classical hour glass shape. Please follow my posts on Instagram (http://www.instagram.com/yemikosibah) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/yemikosibah)
This inspiration board features the kosibah couture gown ‘Odette’. With its ballet-inspired concept, volume of textured organza of the skirt and asymmetrical ruching of the corseted bodice, the cake, flowers and shoes featured here are a perfect match to carry the theme through.
The gown can either be worn with a sheer organza chemise top worn underneath or a sleeveless bolero jacket in the same textured organza fabric of the skirt ( not shown here).
Happy New Year to you. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog. When I initially set up this blog , my aim was for it to be a platform for me to share inspirational images, tips and ideas aimed brides-to -be in particular and people interested in fashion in general. I will also be posting images from Kosibah Real Bride weddings.
I didn’t have the knowledge and tools to totally achieve that until quite recently, so now I hope to be more regular with my posts and hope you come back for updates.
The first Kosibah Inspiration Board features kosibah couture gown ‘Naomi’.
Making great tasting and visually stunning cakes has always been a deep seated passion for Elizabeth Solaru. Her belief is that a cake should delight both taste wise and visually. All of her cakes are made from scratch (strictly no mixes) using the finest organic ingredients where possible.
Elizabeth Solaru likes to design Unique and Bespoke cakes for her clients
. When was your company founded?
Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium was found in 2006. My mission was to create cakes that tasted as beautiful as they looked.

Red Diamond Events is an innovative, invigorating and refreshing Event Design Company based in Abuja, Nigeria. They make events such as weddings, corporate events or private functions Fabulous and Magical. They believe sensational decor can be drawn from the simpliest of things.
Red Diamond Events believe that events should be as unique and as amazing as their clients are, cause they are always ready to bring ideas, dreams and imaginations into a fabulous reality.
. When was your company founded?
I founded and launched Red Diamond Events in 2010. Our aim was to bring something fresh and exciting to the event design industry in Nigeria. We think a bride should be able to dream big rather than just settling for the ordinary. Too often, there’s a perception of “Oh, that couldn’t possibly be done”. We wanted help change that by saying no to mundane and dreary decor and injecting some Fabulosity instead!
. What’s your background and career path prior to your own business?
I’m actually a trained Lawyer. I ventured into event design on the back of comments I kept receiving at the socials my husband and I usually hold. People kept asking: ‘Who did the decor? It’s really beautiful’. Continue reading

Kosibah’s First Sample sale @Primo Bar, hosted by Creative Cornucopia, turned out to be a blissful and an eventful evening and loads of ladies showed up to purchase either a Couture Bridal or an Evening Gown at a discount price of 90% of the original price (*wink*), fulfilling their desires to become a fairy tale princess or a damsel for ‘that’ beautiful occasion and if you were not there to get yours, you still have the chance to get one of those Elegant Gowns or Couture Bridal @ the ‘KOSIBAH STUDIO’ www.kosibah.co.uk
Alright ladies , this I’m so sure you don’t want to miss out on; Putting big smiles on your faces is what YemiKosibah is good at and what better way to do that than have a Kosibah First Ever Sample Sale of elegant and stunning Couture Bridal and Evening Dresses.
These are dresses KOSIBAH kept onto for sentimental reasons, but the KOSIBAH Studio has run out of space and decided to let them go to people who would hopefully appreciated them. these are gowns that have been used repeatedly for shoots and shows, and some of them are a bit careworn, but this will be reflected as mostly 90% reduction in price.
Thursday 1st of March, 2012
This sale will commence 6pm – 9pm @ Park Plaza Hotel, Westminister Bridge Road, in conjunction with Primo Bar Ladies Night, hosted by Creative Cornucopia
