Up and coming designer Funlayo Deri just sent me a gorgeous black dress (should I wear it at convention?) so I had to share some of my favorites from her Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Her designs are very sophisticated with a modern, trendy twist, which I love! I also think it’s amazing that you can work with the Funlayo Deri team to tailor any piece to your exact measurements or contact her for a completely custom dress. So unique!
“Inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2012 collection comes from contemporary architectural structures. Elements of rigid, edgy structures were combined, then transformed to softer, fluid lines and placed in ways which complement the female form. The juxtaposition of different silhouettes, colours, fabrics and textures was used to enhance the clarity of each design. Produced in silk, taffeta, organza and delicate, embroidered lace and chiffon, this collection features exquisite dresses, trousers, shorts and jackets in different shades of nudes, metallics and bright colours.”
I adore how elegant this dress is – check out the close up of this neckline! A beautifully made dress, don’t you think?
Thank you so much! I love it.. xox
