NYFW has been buzzing for good and bad reasons, but right now we’re all about Seyi Shay!
The Nigerian actress, singer, and songwriter has been steaming up fashion headlines in her killer fits. From her thigh-high see-through boots to her two-piece coordinates, NYFW has been hearing it! lol!
Her latest fashion statement has been on the runway. A while ago we learned that the African star would be walking the runway for bridal atelier designer, Yemi Osunkoya of Yemi Kosibah. And a few hours ago, she did. Seyi closed the NYFW show for Kosibah wearing a stunning strapless bridal gown featuring lace layers and a heart-shaped neckline. Her hair was decorated with a gold tiara by New York milliner, Z Malan, with stunning diamond earrings and simple, elegant makeup.
To thank the designer for featuring her in his show, Seyi posted this stunning photo saying it was an honor to close the show.
Judging from Kosibah’s page, we can see the feeling is mutual. He posted about how excited he was to have Seyi be a part of his show a few days earlier, and this African connection is making us feel mushy!

So nice having Afrobeat star and Model @iamseyishay here in the Kosibah NY Atelier for her fitting for my NYFW Show tomorrow. Also great having my dear friend @bukolaare of @ofakindcreatives, who made it all happen, here as well.

We are really happy for Seyi and her newfound edge in the fashion world. Now, we want to see her slay some of these other Nigerian brands. What say you?
