Kosibah is a Brooklyn-based brand that specializes in elegant, modern bridal gowns that enhance a bride’s figure and flatters their natural shape. Since 1991, Kosibah has committed to “providing exceptional quality of service and meticulous attention to detail”.
The Spring/Summer Kosibah 2022 collection, titled ASHEYORI EJI, made its debut at the Spring 2021 New York Fashion Week. For these gowns, the designer created Ready to Wear pieces that echo the style and fit of his couture gowns. These designs are for the bride that is looking for a clean silhouette with luxurious details and embellishments. Here’s what they have to say about their latest collection:
The collection of 11 gowns and one pantsuit are the label’s response to the need for more accessible gowns while still maintaining the Kosibah aesthetic.
The name Asheyori derives from the Yoruba language which means “Success Through Adversity”, which is the birthing story of the collection during our current unprecedented times and Eji means second or twice because this is the second bridal market during the pandemic that Kosibah has presented. These times call for sustainability and not wastefulness.
The dresses all have variations of Yoruba ‘Cherish’ names which have ‘ké’ which means love/care for/adore within them as well as other names for Joy, Precious, and Gold.
