Doyin

Lagos, 2009

Yemi on Doyin's dress:

"Doyin had seen a dress that I'd done for a previous client and contacted me through Facebook.  We modified the dress design that she'd seen to suit her taste - in particular we added a detachable top made from organza and lace appliqué.  It had an A-line skirt which had lace appliqués stitched on by hand.  I was very pleased that Doyin chose to fly me to Nigeria to dress her for her wedding."

Doyin
"I can't stop looking at myself in that fabulous dress - He made me look like a goddess." Rosemary
