The iconic designer was photographed by TY Bello in several portrait shots.
Talking about the interview and photo shoot process with Deola Sagoe, TY Bello says:
DEOLA SAGOE: THE SPIRIT OF FREEDOM
My portraits of @deola_by_deolasagoe are on the cover of today’s @thisdaystyle . You should go out and get this one . Her interview is amazing .
I remember telling her over the phone the images I had of her in my head . I described the movements and fringe details . This amazing woman just went ahead .. Sketched her interpretation of what I had described and produced some pieces for the shoot.
More importantly she brought way more than the freedom and the spirit I had described. I can shout it from the mountaintop… Deola Sagoe is the most amazing subject a photographer can ask for . She connects so uniquely ..Her beauty runs deep and she’s understand what it means to be truly free. I still can’t believe this woman just turned 50. #tybellophotography #deolasagoe50 #pure #white #spirit #dance #portrait #freedom #beautiful #purity #shuku”
