throwback: funmi iyanda in MOMO + frank osodi


african print is virtually as ubiquitous as denim...or at least it's about to be. and photos like these remind us why - it works remarkably well with other fabrics and stands out without drowning them out completely. above, funmi iyanda wears a MOMO by fati asebuela piece constructed from ankara and tulle...

...and below...



...she works a frank osodi creation to perfection. the woman is glamazin' and here she is live and direct in all her glory speaking about her foundation, change a life:
