The Yellow Series #3

"All things bright and beautiful..." yea you all know how the song goes. It's the perfect soundtrack to this post, as I bring you beautiful scenery, a beautiful girl and of course a beautiful dress! lol

Everyone meet Ms Yinka Adebayo, one of my favourite girlies and most defo one of my favourite bodies to work with. As annoying as she can be, we kinda make the perfect match in that I really do appreciate my work when she's wearing it. It's nearly always perfect fit each time. During the summer, she asked me to make a few dresses for her travels to the US as she had a few weddings to attend. This yellow dress was one of them. I decided to stray away from the usual body con that she likes. I used some black lace detail to enrich the dress. According to her, it was a hit amongst the wedding guests! :) As usual, I wasn't able to get pics from the day, hence we did a lil photoshoot after church one sunday. I hope you like it too.

This cute little dog named Olivia, came along with its owner as we were shooting and decided to be in it. I don't do dogs AT ALL, as a matter of fact, I don't do animals in general! lol but I managed to stay sane throughout this session making sure I kept my distance. 

There you have it guys! :) I look forward to making Yinka's wedding dress when the time comes! woop! As usual, leave a comment, let me know your thoughts, would you wear it? yay or nay?

Oh yea one more thing, if you are free this friday night or just desperately seeking a touch from God, come down to London EXCEL centre for the Festival Of Life. I'll defo be there, so if you wanna say hello, hi, wassup, feel free; or if you want me to lay hands, pass on the anointing , gladly! loool just kidding oo. But yea more info here:

The Yellow Series #2

Hey Sweeties, so sorry for the delay in bringing you part 2 of this series. Reason is because I wanted to show them in the order that they were created but it's been a challenge trying to get photos of the 2nd creation from this beautiful yellow fabric. Therefore, here is outfit number 3.

I worked on this creation late one saturday night/early hours of sunday to wear to church. However, when I finished it, I just didn't want to wear it anymore. My sister convinced me to. Glad i did, as it was soo very well received, everyone seemed to like it. I also got a few orders for the same dress! Glorayy! lol. I was rocking my short 'fro and some pearls. I hope you like it too :) Lemme know, leave a comment. You don't need to login to do so anymore! woop! :D

Look out for part #3 ! Exciting new face, promise you're going to love it! :)

The Yellow Series #1 - Bridesmaids #1

So over the past 2 weekends, it just seemed like everyone was getting married. Everyone was at some wedding, ask my Instagram feeds and bbm updates. Weddings are fun, absolutely love them. I wish I got invites to more weddings:( . I love bridalwear too and I can't wait to make my first wedding gown. I've done a few bridesmaids dresses and here is the first that I ever did.

It was in January 2011, I had less than a month to create 9 dresses. It was hectic but fun. The girls were all so lovely and easy to work with. The bride's favourite colour is Yellow, so we had to go for yellow dresses. After deciding on a style, I went fabric shopping and found the most amazing bright yellow fabric. Being new to the biz, I bought sooo much more than I actually needed. Hence, the rest of the garments in the yellow series :) Looking back, I see a few fitting/technique blunders that I made.. lol thank God for growth. I also don't think this fabric is really ideal for bridesmaid dresses. It's too rigid. Many thanks to photographer A.Deru for some of these amazing photos. Excuse the low quality ones.

a different look for the chief bridesmaid
and another for the MOH

Hope you like.
