Every bride wants a fairy tale wedding and a fairy tale dress; this is where Yemi Osunkoya of Kosibah comes in as he has mastered the art of creating stunning wedding dresses for over 26 years. On Day 2 of the just concluded Lagos Bridal Fashion Week, Kosibah unveiled the ‘Stateside Collection’ to the applause of soon to be brides, fashion buyers, editors and fashion enthusiasts.
The Stateside Collection combined the timeless and the contemporary in the most exquisite ways. The collection comprises of various flattering silhouettes in an ivory and nude palette with his signature figure enhancing element added to each piece but done in a deceptively unstructured way. The collection features detachable trains, asymmetric sleeves, back cowls, extravagant peplums and more intricate details. Yemi believes that the Kosibah bride is a discerning bride who knows the value of couture which explains why the Stateside Collection offers posh bridal looks that are simply elegant and quite different from the norm.
