With Love From Lagos – Phunk Afrique



Funke Ogunde of Phunk Afrique draws her inspiration from ‘A Woman’s Body’. Phunk Afrique aims to ensure that every woman who wears one of their pieces ‘gets noticed’ and is rest assured that her best features are being accentuated. For Phunk Afrique – The perfect combination of Colour, Cut, Fabric & Creativity births a Phunk Afrique piece.

This is definitely one of my fave designers of the moment! It goes along perfectly with all the activities I love….There’s something to wear to hang out with the girls on a Saturday afternoon, something to wear on a date with the lad on a Friday evening, something to wear to church on Sunday and that classic piece for a special event….

Below are photos from Phunk Afrique’s latest collection.

    pulchritude means beauty. Ensure you use your words right. You really are in the wrong place to use your SAT vocabulary. Don’t even fit into the sentence you just wrote. Ensure for your furture. Cheers.

    I love Ankara and am always glad to see it interpreted so well. It fits the African woman in a way that other clothing will never be able to.
    Well Done!

    dunno why peeps still use yahoo email addresses for businesses in this day and age. Professional ones dont cost much these days and people take u a lot more serious.
