Deri showcased her collection called “Labour of Love” on Saturday July 16, 2011.  Her pieces are luxurious and wearable while celebrating the female form and emphasizing curves. Funlayo Deri women are confident and sophisticated― with refined taste.

Deri’s aesthetic is influenced by her cultural experiences and exposure. “I also believe that clothes should be glamorous but not taken excessively serious,” says Deri.
