BN Collection to Closet: Dakore Akande in Lisa Folawiyo



Happy Saturday!

It;s time for another BN Collection to Closet and we are loving Dakore Akande in Lisa Folawiyo. This feature is our way of showing love to our African designers by shining a light on those who #BuyAfrican.

Let’s check out Dakore as she attended the ‘FIFTY‘ by EbonyLife Films premiere at the BFI London Film Festival last week.



Dakore Akande in Lisa Folawiyo - BellaNaija - October 2015

There lots of things we love about eponymous womenswear brand Lisa Folawiyo. One of the things we love is the fashion brand’s ability to leave us speechless with each new collection. Read more about the designer and the fabulous label HERE.

Lisa Folawiyo debuted her Spring/Summer 2015 collection in New York last year, and we have to admit it is one of our top faves for the season. With fringe detailing, asymmetrical hemlines, rich fabrics and gorgeous models, they gave other designers a run for their money. View the full collection if by some unfortunate turn of events you missed it.

Last week, the beautiful Dakore Akande rocked a piece from the collection in London that reminded us of just how much we loved it.

The piece – a print dress with fringe detailing and fabric inserts – was one of our favourites from the luxe collective. Dakore paired her chic dress with black heels, silver & red accessories, and let her braids fall to the side of her face. So pretty. See another image of her below;

London’s evening breeze must have finally won the argument, because later Dakore covered her shoulders and arms with a black sweater. Here she is with her ‘FIFTY’ co-stars – Ireti Doyle, Omoni Oboli & director, Biyi Bandele. See more images from the even HERE.
