Richard Akuson



Hello BN Style dolls!

It’s time for another fabulous edition of BN Collection to Closet – our style feature where we show love to African designers by shining a light on those who #BuyAfrican and #WearAfrican.

Today, we are looking at fashion darling, Zainab Balogun in Nigerian design label —DZYN.

DZYN is undoubtedly the go-to brand for bespoke tailoring in Abuja. The brand’s roster of elite clients is second to none. Although already established at the bespoke front, the brand has been making interesting strides towards a more formidable RTW (ready-to-wear), with a two-time appearance at the Lagos Fashion and Design Week, we are convinced that they are indeed on their way there.

The DZYN drop shoulder midi dress was first debuted during the brand’s Spring/Summer ’16 presentation at the Lagos Fashion and Design week.

Some days ago, TV Personality Zainab Balogun wore the dress to Ebuka Obi – Uchendu’s much buzzed about Abuja wedding, wearing it in a rather understated and demure manner, with minimal makeup, accessories and a black suede pointy stiletto—Zainab has again proven why she is such a style sensation to behold, over and over again.

    IMO, she didn’t do anything with the dress. Just took it off the runway and doned it. Girl pls! A teardrop earring? , a bag?, another shoe?. Just NO! No doubt she’s pretty, but this look ain’t cutting it.

    I feel this dress is very constricting and uncomfortable.
