the Elsie Banson gown. Named after my stylish grandmother. one word to describe the concept behind it would be 'whimsical' the "Adwoa Ahenfoa" blue cocktail dress displays innocence with class and the "Abeke" which is showcased in a vivacious sequined fabric simply cut.
the "Alake" suit
"Alake" means one to be honoured.
This masculine cut suit with a feminine finishing was named after my sister who is obviously rocking the ensemble. A great desk to dinner piece which can tell two different stories for the wearer.
@ the office - she is the serious team player who achieves all set targets.
after five - with vodka in one hand, the office girl can party hard!
I think I was born in the wrong era - I adore and love music and fashion from the '40s through to the '70s. I can sing along to almost all of Frankie's (Frank Sinatra) tunes and Al Green can 'take me to the river' any day.
my fashion sense? Vintage, bold, sexy all thrown together without losing any sense of finesse and class. I love love love pencil skirts and dresses (there's no better way to accentuate one's curves), origami sleeves, couture gowns, long flared dresses, peg trousers ( certainly a must have), flat sandals with fab appliqués, high heels, t'shirts in various sizes, bags, more bags - the bigger the better! Out of this great love "LolaBello Collection" was created to create bespoke made-to-order apparel infused with African and Western influences. Unfortunately, it hasn't kicked off the way it should yet. But watch this space!
How I wish I would wake up one fine morning and be able to speak Yoruba!
Of course, a holiday to The Gambia ASAP would be appreciated
