Fashion: Ella & Gabby

Ella & Gabby is a fashion label based in Nigeria. She was launched on April 14 this year by designer Ada Mgbudem.
The label describes, in my opinion best: Fabrics collected around the world combined with fabrics from the African coast make the perfect union that becomes the Ella & Gabby woman. This collection is warm, glamorous and most importantly universal. Contrasting lace and African prints are a perfect symbol of how different worlds can work together in perfect harmony "
On the AFWL they prenentierten an exciting collection for women 'of the world'. 

Ella & Gabby is just stunning!
