If you’re active on social media, you’ll know Deola Sagoe’s traditional wedding dresses are indeed A LOOK! Well, that’s if you have the coins for them!
Deola Sagoe is popular for making intricate Iro and Buba designs that your favourite tailor can only dream of copying. In fact, the designer’s Komole designs are unique to the T, and you sure cannot find the aso-oke in any market.
In 2016, Deola Sagoe launched the luxury Komole Kandids Collection, after years of research and development. Made for rich AF modern brides, buying a classic Iro and Buba from the brand costs nothing short of N500k. Admittedly, the outfits ain’t cheap but if you like to slay, you better get your money up, girl!
Since then, the talented Deola Sagoe blessed our Instagram feeds with iconic traditional wedding dresses. Here are some of the attires we won’t be forgetting any time soon:
1. The Fulani Milk Maid Dress

2.The Pink Lava Iro and Buba
While sticking to the Komole Motifs we’re all used to, this pink dress has neon undertones and colour block detail that makes the dress iconic.

Gold is a risky bridal colour however, we love this perfect blend of the gold and chocolate.
