Nigerian-British couture bridal designer, Yemi Osunkoya of Kosibah’s Asheyori collection was designed just for you. With eight dresses and a pantsuit, there’s one that definitely fits your style. These outfits feature a range of designs from internal corsets, gathered ballgowns, beaded lace appliques, his idea was that everyone has something that resonates with them yet giving them that bridal vibe.
Here is a brief description of the collection:
The Fall 2021 line is a collection of eight dresses and one pantsuit which are the label’s response to the need for more accessible dresses while still maintaining the Kosibah aesthetic which includes beaded lace appliques, a two-piece wrap peplum jacket with a soaring v-shaped neckline, internal corsets, and softly gathered ballgown skirts in layers of tulle, organza, and taffeta. The name Asheyori derives from the Yoruba language which means Success Through Adversity, which is the birthing story of the collection during our current unprecedented times. The dresses all have variations of Yoruba ‘Cherish’ names which have ‘ké’ which means love/care for/adore within them.
