Don’t you just love when the designer is also the muse!

The designer/muse series is one that would never stop because the dream of every designer is to create pieces their customers love- which evidently includes themselves.

Derin Fabikun is one that fits right in with the pack. Her brand, Fablane is your go-to for clean, elegant and sophisticated pieces. Let’s just say we would be taking a look at the 4 times the designer stepped out in pieces specially created for herself.

Dress With Frills

Derin seems to work well with a lot of fabric as most of the pieces from her brand have that effect. This teal dress has a lot of frilled fabric overlay and cutouts that fit just right. The mini length of the dress prevents it from becoming too overwhelming.

Bowed 2-piece

Again with the fabric effect, Derin did create a two-piece. A mono strap bowed top was paired with pants that did have a side cape. That you do not see often!

Yellow Sleeve-cape Dress

This dress has a lot of elements to it. The off-shoulder sleeve on one side and the sleeve cape on the other. It also has a side slit and black embellishments. Showing up in this look, there would have been no doubt in Derin’s mind that she did slay less.

Monochrome 2-piece

Derin stepped out in this white and black two-piece to celebrate Ini Dima Okojie’s father’s party. The floral applique on the shoulder defines the entire look.

The ensemble sets an ‘I’m . to celebrate with you but I won’t take your shine’ tone. Shout out to people who show up to your party putting you into their slay consideration.

We have to ask, which one is your favourite from the bunch?
