Yes! It’s fun and fabulous Friday again! And if you thought BellaNaija Weddings was done this week, you’re in for a surprise! We have a double treat – BN Bridal, and BN Bridal Beauty later today, with the makeup artist and models for this shoot.
We’re so happy to present a brand new bridal designer in the Nigerian scene – Kolini Couture. Here’s the 2014 bridal collection by Nicole Amadi. Think of Kolini as bridal couture out of Africa. The gowns are dreamed, designed AND handmade in Lagos. We love that!
Designer Nicole shares her inspiration with us for the designs – her six piece premiere collection – and shoot, which she styled herself, as well as a short description for reach of her sweet gowns.
Kolini Couture was established February 2013, by Designer Nicole Amadi after a 5 year stint fulfilling made-to-measure suit orders for Emmett London, and styling both a male and female clientele while working at S Two Ltd. Nicole’s love for the finest fabrics,silks, laces and pattern skills fuels her desire to offer discerning Nigerian brides a truly custom fit wedding gown experience with an elegant and fresh approach that isn’t your typical bridal “costume”.This Luxe 2014 collection Dreamed, Designed, and Handmade in Lagos, draws inspiration from the superfluousness of emotions that overwhelms the bride in the lead-up to such a beautiful and timeless occasion. such emotions as Love, Hope, Grace, and Faith are the very emotions that inspired the name of each dress in the collection.
Glory: Full tulle skirt layered ball gown with lace and tulle draped bodice, finished with Diamante sash.
Hope: Pearl beaded embroidered lace with silk organza layered chapel train.
