Bridal designer @eseazenabor shared: Throughout history, cathedrals have represented both immense power and beauty. With this collection, we tap into that confluence and explore the magnificence of details and measured opulence.

Presented here in 3D, these 4 pieces from #GrandCathedral, are a celebration of craftsmanship; a call to the modern bride with a flair for the extravagant. One who’s not afraid to take up space, ever graceful and timeless.

Mowalola Ogunlesi Is Design Director Of Yeezy Gap!

Shortly after Kanye West announced his latest business venture – in collaboration with apparel conglomerate Gap no less, we learned that West’s Yeezy brand has hired Nigerian designer and Central Saint Martins graduate Mowalola Ogunlesi as design director.

@mowalola

The collaboration with the controversial rapper is optimistically projected to earn $1 billion annually within its first five years. “We are excited to welcome Kanye back to the Gap family as a creative visionary, building on the aesthetic and success of his Yeezy brand and together defining a next-level retail partnership,” the Global Head of Gap Brand Mark Breitbard said in a press release.

Mowalola shared the news on her Instagram page:

We are so proud of Mowalola and can’t wait to see what she accomplishes at the helm of Yeezy Gap!
