ADEBAYO JONESPosted on Monday, July 31st, 2006 at 3:09 AM
Adebayo Jones is a London-Based Nigerian designer, his focus is primarily occasion/formal wear and wedding dresses. I like to think of Adebayo as a bespoke dressmaker. His designs are all about clean lines, expert tailoring and precision finishing. I luv his work and admire his resilience as he was one of the pioneering African designers in Europe. This fashion spread is from my fav magazine, True Love West Africa. ENJOY.
