Something Special for the Girls! Nigerian Fashion Label April By Kunbi presents the “Fun, Flirty & Girly Collective”



Red carpet favorite, that’s what we think of when we hear the name April by Kunbi. We can’t talk about the label without mentioning the buzzworthy style moments the brand has created for BN Red Carpet faves including Oreka Godis, Mo’Cheddah, Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi and the label’s Creative Director, Olakunbi Oyelese.

Rather than presenting a new collection, this lookbook showcases a selection of April by Kunbi’s party, red carpet and wedding picks. Olakunbi tells BellaNaijaStyle, “The Fun, Flirty and Girly Collective by April By Kunbi presents a wide range of highly versatile and wearable pieces. The collective features beautifully crafted dresses, peplum jackets, skirts and pants using prints and fabrics such as chiffon, raw silk and lots of shiny sequined fabric the brand is well known for. April By Kunbi will be unveiling a new and exciting collection at the 2012 edition of Music Meets Runway (MMR 2012). Watch this space for more details!

    April by kunbi will have amazing profits as you sell this line in jesus name,and pls don’t mind the person that says its not original,they don’t know that as a fashion grad. you can create everything,its your ability to know what your targets wants to wear per time that makes you successful in the clothing industry,way to go!

    • Ada

      November 16, 2012 at 1:13 pm

      Gbam!! you took the words out of my mouth…who cares if its “same old designs”, she has interpreted the fabrics well and i would buy every single outfit except the wedding dress as i’m already married. Good job April, all the best.

    • bukky

      November 16, 2012 at 2:42 pm

      Thank you o.I dont get all this silly originality comment.Should she makes clothes out of concrete and salt ni?Nothing is new under the sun and many designers (international and local) have incorporated peplums, sheer and sequins this year…deal with it already.

      Love the collection.Very flirty and wearable.
