April By Kunbi is the brain-child of Olakunbi Oyelese, a graduate of the renowned Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Founded in 2010 and inspired by the month of April – the start of the Spring season, April by Kunbi has been built on the philosophies of newness, freshness and colour.
The label has been spotted on celebrities including Agbani Darego, Mo’Cheddah, Tiwa Savage, Oreka Godis and Toke Makinwa to name a few.
The new season 2012 collection features pieces ranging from etheral-like ensembles to edgy party girl dresses, fitted mini skirts with a lot of shimmering highlights to them! The designer made use of fabrics ranging from lace, sequin, chiffon, leopard prints to luxe cotton.
We are totally in love with the styling and can see ourselves wearing the blue sequin dress.
