Onyeka

Lagos, Jan 2011

Yemi talks about Onyeka's dress: "Onyeka came through a recommendation from one of my other Lagos weddings.  She wanted a dress that was elegant and timeless but that also showed off her figure.  Lace was a good choice for that.  The cathedral veil was also our creation – with a matching lace edging to the appliqué on the dress and bodice.  Silhouette was a modified A-line."

"I felt more gorgeous than I have ever felt before ... his corsetry skills are amazing: he can take inches off your waist" Jacqui

Ronke

Marylebone Parish Church and Porchester Hall, London, Jun 2009

Ronke wanted a Grecian effect which we achieved with the tiny pleating and ruching on the bodice.  The assymetrical look was provided by a single strap adorned with organza roses.  Duchesse satin with an organza overlay – hand-stitched lace appliqués.  Detachable train.  The mantilla veil was also a Kosibah creation – with a lace border to match the lace of the gown.

Susan

Ilford, Essex, UK, Oct 2009

Yemi on Susan's dress: "Susan was a former intern at Kosibah and I'd always promised that I would make her wedding dress.  The original inspiration was another dress in my collection – but modified to suit Susan.  She wanted a red bow and that matched the accent Swarovski diamonte stones on the bodice and skirt.  The tails of the bow sat on the train of the dress.  I also designed her chief bridesmaid's dress in a design to complement Susan's gown."
