Yemi Osunkoya and the team from Kosibah were delighted to participate at WedExpo Lagos 2012.  This was Nigeria's biggest wedding exhibition and we were on hand to take consultations from future brides and those who appreciate the finer arts of couture wedding dresses.  The exhibition was extensively covered in the blogosphere and traditional media.  The Sunday culminated in a catwalk show of the designs from Bienvenue 20.

Kosibah exhibits at Brides of Culture 2012

The team from Kosibah was on hand to take consultations from brides-to-be at the Brides of Culture event at London's Crowne Plaza Hotel Docklands.  It was a busy show and we'd like to say a big "thank you" to everyone who took the time to stop by our stand or even to have a fabulous couture designer wedding dress sketched out by Yemi Osunkoya, the designer behind the label.

There's a really good write-up about the event on Kevin Obosi's Photography blog (and even better pictures).
