Grand congratulations are in order for the Nigerian-born Canadian designer Esé Azénabor, one of today’s most respected couture bridal and evening wear designers.
Azénabor’s expansion to Madison Avenue, New York, marks the brand’s success. The boutique opening took place on February 15th, 2023; amongst family, and close friends, were diplomats and socialites such as Ambassador Lot Peter Egopija, Consul General of Nigeria, Vanessa Noel, Prince Dimitri, Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin, Debra Lee, Don Murphy, Rolonda Watts, and Peter Tarantino were spotted.
The designer unveiled a few key pieces during the grand opening, proudly displaying her new collection.
A rich color palette introduces brocade gowns and embroidered organza pieces that overlay the evening gowns.
Petal-inspired dresses were featured in bold, bright colors, and the designer’s signature high-slit gown with a feathered, detachable skirt.
Bridal overcoats in Silk satin blended fabrics delicately embellished with pearls ushered in the bridal gowns.
A Greco-Roman influence comes through in this fully beaded column dress.
A mixture of asymmetry is seen on a few of the gown’s bodices. In comparison, how the textiles are used shows a juxtaposition of strong structure and soft fluidity.
There is an homage to art and floral motifs seen throughout the presentation.
Ese’s luxury fashion brand specializes in creating elegant and sophisticated wedding dresses and evening gowns. With a focus on highly intricate detailing and form-fitting silhouettes, her designs are for women looking for bold, bespoke gowns for their special events.
This new location will offer a wide selection of Ese’s latest collection and a team of knowledgeable, highly trained stylists to help women find that outstanding piece for their next special occasion.
Our founder, Myrdith Leon-McCormack, who attended both soirees, shares, “Gillian Harding, socialite and founder of Brand Connect, produced an exquisite event that was the epitome of excellence for all present to experience as the who is who of Madison Avenue. Esé Azénabor has made countless brides and socialites happy by bringing her artistic creations to New York.”
Every detail was impeccably designed, starting from the beautiful invitations hand-delivered to each invited guest designed by Oda Creatives, another splendid designer one must know about for any upcoming events you want to make a statement with. Sabine Poisson, Inc. executed the catering and floral design for the opening on the 15th and the sit-down dinner on the 16th. All in attendance were left speechless by the conversion of the boutique to host both these soirees, along with a fashion show presentation.
