Arise Made In Africa Spring 2012 Designer Collective – Bunmi Koko’s Allure of the Sirens

Bunmi Olaye presented her Bunmi Koko Spring/Summer 2012 collection she aptly named Allure of the Sirens at Arise Made in Africa Designer Collective show during New York Fashion. High structured pieces tied into her water theme. Bunmi Koko known for her eclectic take on womenswear was one of 7 African fashion designers that presented their latest designs at the highly-anticipated Arise Made in Africa Designer Collective show. Elite Model Nigeria winner Chika Emmanuel joined fellow rising  models Rose Cordero.  We love Bunmi Koko’s chic rope statement-making necklaces and belts. We also admire her use of pleats! The collection is very feminine!
