"Labour of Love"

Hello Loviesss,

How have you all been? I'm particularly excited about today's post because i'm featuring my very good friend and classmate's collection. (Btw, she's my motivation whenever inspiration for my collections seem to fly out the window...... lol). 

We attended the prestigious ISTITUTO MARANGONI school of fashion in London. Those were fun times *wink wink* but thats gist for another day.

Now to the designer and her collection...... "Labour of Love"

Funmilayo Csilla Deri is a Nigerian born, London/Budapest based fashion designer who launched her eponymous label in March 2011. The brand- Funlayo Deri is out with their Autumn/Winter 2011 collection of luxury ready-to-wear women’s fashion.

The collection features bold yet softly stylish pieces was inspired by the designer’s desire to pay homage to women who work hard. With each one unique, the pieces celebrate individuality, but all have in common a fine cut, luxurious fabrics and painstaking workmanship.

The Labour of Love collection features intricately draped, structured, asymmetric and fitted dresses and separates in exquisite silks, lace and leather that look divine and feel amazing on the body.

The pieces in the collection are very strong and i admire the craftsmanship that went into making all the pieces. 

Well done girl.

I hope you all enjoy it.


                                                      Luv, Luv, Luv, Luv, Luv.....

                                 Love the Cape, the color & everything about it

                                         My favorite piece, Luv, Luv the Jacket

                                        The LBD redefined.....very classy & chic


  1. funmilayo is definitely a designer who knows what she wants and the styles soo far are just ok. she'll have 2 go beyond ok to wow the fashion industry and audience.But given the fact that this is the first collection from labour of love,she does deserve a pat on the back, however though,she needs to be more creative,open minded,adventurous. i totally love the designs from d eighth photo down. good one!
