Revisiting Yemi Osunkoya of Kosibah

 In 2011, as I researched the wedding industry to  see whether or not I should venture into Wedding Planning, I approached Yemi  Osunkoya of Kosibah label for an interview and he kindly obliged.

Kosibah specialises in bespoke figure enhancing bridal, evening and formal daywear. Renown for luxurious fabrics, corsetry, boned bodices and embellishment these form fitting gowns  are high in demand. Kosibah gowns are  all tailor made from the Kosibah Atelier in Camden,NW London.

I am grateful that  he believed in me then. Thank you Yemi Kosibah, because of you I am still here.

Here are some of his latest creations and a link to the interview I conducted in 2011.
