This is a beautiful colour-block dress by one of my newly found Nigerian designer - Sally Bawa. Few times over the past weeks I visited her atelier on Keffi, Ikoyi and I should say I, it's quite an impressive setting she got there.
Exquisitely located on the first floor of a red building, the construction is simple and beautiful - nice setting in her work space and the showroom which directly faces the street is designed with lovely colours blend sweetly with the well styled Sally-Bawa-mannequins.
The dress above is one of the few pieces I got from the store for a shoot I did recently and couldn't just imagine returning it to the store...long story short; it ended up in my closet.

While I cannot find the perfect words to define Sally's designs I clearly can say they are exquisite, sexy and beautiful for any woman who knows good style. I'll advice you visit her store - 1, Keffi Street Off Awolowo Road, Ikoyi
