Happy Anniversary to Fola and Akin Esho.

Here are images from the wedding of the CEO of Wed Magazine and Wed Expo Akin Esho and Kosibah client Fola which took place exactly one year ago today in Lagos, Nigeria.

As is the case with most of my bridal clients, I was there to dress Fola and attend the wedding.

Happy Anniversary Fola and Akin, I wish you many more years of marital bliss.

Kosibah Inspiration Board II

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).

What do you think?

Kosibah Inspiration Board I

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’.
