Funmilayo Csilla Deri is a Nigerian born, London/Budapest based fashion designer who launched her eponymous label in March 2011. The brand- Funlayo Deri is out with their Autumn/Winter 2011 collection of luxury ready-to-wear women’s fashion.
The collection features bold yet softly stylish pieces was inspired by the designer’s desire to pay homage to women who work hard. With each one unique, the pieces celebrate individuality, but all have in common a fine cut, luxurious fabrics and painstaking workmanship.
The designer seeks to make clothes for women that they can love and love themselves in, clothes which exude elegance and imbue confidence. The Labour of Love collection features intricately draped, structured, asymmetric and fitted dresses and separates in exquisite silks, lace and leather that look divine and feel amazing on the body.
The Labour of Love collection features pieces in rich colours, textures and details like lace inserts. We get to see cocktail dresses, flow length dresses, a selection of jumpsuits and coats in widely varied styles. Although, I find a few pieces in this collection a little over done and would have preferred if the styles were simplified, the majority of the pieces in this collection are very strong, the cut-out pieces are my absolute favourite and I admire the craftsmanship that went into making the coats and cape.
