We can always find something to be thankful for if we look hard enough. I’m grateful for the opportunity to do what I love. I don’t take it for granted.
Here are some more dresses I love… Enjoy.
Here is Nkem in one of my earlier patchwork experiments in 07
Mrs Biodun-Kuti. 06..still fresh...
This 2 piece was also 07. We were going for lots of drama with the skirt and she loved it
Me... 07. Good old dry lace, red ribbons laced through...I'm still saving this dress cos I hope to fit into it again in this life time *AMEN* :)...I don't think I'll do all this 'matchy-matchy' again though...
I’m not sure if it’s because of the fabric, but I love this dress a lot.Tinuke's monostrap dress. This was @ Nkem's wedding in 08. lovely...Aunty Nneka. 08
The next four are aso-ebi. What I like about aso-ebi is how you can make a person stand out when there are so many people wearing the same fabric.
With Funbi‘s dress, I incorporated the aso-oke...me likey..
For Dunni, we used taffeta. And she did stand out
I was looking at Moradeke’s wedding pics on FB and I was thinking, hmm… fine girl, I like the fit of this dress… and then I saw it was Ayo wearing Gbemisoke. J
Here’s Ayo again, this time I was the photographer. See the difference between a pro and a… ermm...not so pro photog ;)Another FB find :) Ayo in a patchwork skirt from 09...
Here’s Adenike of Ewar makeovers rocking the ‘Ewar dress’ I named this dress after her because I designed the dress from scratch for her
She looked so good in it, I made one for myself (and a couple more for her)... This was me at the City people awards in 09
Here’s Nike again in a top we made with the leftover fabric from the 1st Ewar dress. She has a way of making my work look good.Nike rocks a piece from my 09 collection here
Same dress, different fabric
Here Funmi shows that with the right shoes and accessories (plus the right dose of swag which she adds), you can turn a ‘simple’ dress into something stunningPatchwork dress from 08....
