This Week I'm Loving.......

............... The Akpos Okudu 'Siren' Collection

Regular readers will know I'm not a fan of posting lookbooks, just the sight of an email with the subject line reading "For Immediate Release" is enough to put me off checking my emails. I have to really love it to consider it and the minute I viewed the pictures from this collection I was in love.

The collection is inspired by Sophia Loren, Dorothy Dandridge and sirens of the silver screen and I can totally see that in these gorgeous gowns.
The brand has employed satin and chiffon in jewel tones with touches of lace and elaborate draping, the results being true to the Akpos Okudu aestheic; fun, gorgeous and ready to wear.
Newly married Akpos Okudu Nwokekoro (I saw her wedding photos on Bella Naija and LOVED her proposal story) says “It was a dream putting together this collection. Often my art imitates life and this collection really captures this new phase in my life and the direction for the Akpos Okudu label, a little older, a little sexier.

Unleash your inner siren!”

Can we get into this beauty below. Looove this dress...LOVE. The bedazzled draping, the colour, the length...everything!

Everyone knows I'm a fan of back drama, give people something to ogle when you leave. This coral number is it!

My favourite of them all; the Sophia dress, it can be worn two ways and both ways are fantastic.

I love when designers depart from their usual aesthetic and still kill it, shows you how versatile they can be. Love the fact Akpos embraced her more grwon up side in this collection. I die for the first dress and the Sophia dress above.
