Designer Spotlight: Akpos Okudu

Anyone who's glanced at this blog for longer than 2mins can safely conclude that i'm a sucker for dresses. Especially in the spring and summer months as i like to to dress in clothes that are suitable for a afternoon picnic outside on a blanket reading, eating and laughing till my mouth and sides are sore. I love picnics so if a dress doesn't pass this requirement, it probably won't get much mileage in my closet.

Meet one of our own, blogger and designer Akpos Okudu, whose dresses pass the picnic test in my book.The dresses seem comfortable and are beautifully feminine with a variety of hemlines. The simple silhouettes add a subtle elegance without being too serious. Perfect for sunny afternoons and fun summer nights. My favorite is the one shoulder pinkish floor length number (and i usually don't like long dresses)












* Look, even the models can't resist The Pull of the Picnic dresses. The designer herself confirmed that even during the photoshoot (as seen in the 2nd pic from the bottom) they had to stop and have a picnic of their own.

**The above caption may or may not be true, as i did not confer with the designer...it was my interpretation of the pics...and a joke :-D
