Fabric + sketch for @adesuaetomi Edo traditional outfit.
We had to alter the sketch and make it a tube instead so she could wear her edo c0ral beads on her neck
Adesua is a unique bride..she wanted her outfit to be avant garde/structured which was a bit of a challenge as My aesthetic is more ‘feminine’, but we thank God it turned out great ❤️❤️#BAAD2017#tojufoyeh#tfofcourse”
