The LA designer caught the audience's attention with an affordable luxury collection that flawlessly fuses her West African roots with a West Coast Californian vibe, all while being sustainable.

The Collection

Gefa showcased a collection called "Follow Your Dreams," a fusion of her African cultural roots and Californian upbringing. Her love for nature and laid-back, spiritual lifestyle are evident in her design style, which she built upon the foundation of her upbringing.

"Follow Your Dreams" features an array of "Robe Dresses" crafted from luxurious linens in delightful pastel shades, enriched by bold mud cloth print cotton and splashes of tie-dye which call to mind cotton candy skies on a leisurely California day.

As fashion trends shift towards multi-functionality, attention to detail, and craftsmanship, B Studios stands out as a brand that embodies these values. The designs in this collection appeal by the way the fringe and flow movement is incorporated into the fabric. As the models stroll across the stage, it creates a beautiful effect. This production exhibited a peaceful and calming tone, featuring nature imagery in the background and gentle, complimented by ethereal music.

B Studios was founded in Los Angeles, CA, by Gefa Banini. What started as custom-made face masks during the global COVID-19 pandemic, Gefa realized she had the talent to start and run a business that could help people by improving the quality of their lives. It was from these humble beginnings that B Studios was born.

During her statement to the press after the show, Gefa explained that she titled her collection "Follow Your Dreams" because that's what she had to do to make her collection a reality. She is on track to graduate at the top of her class with a bachelor's degree in Fashion Design while launching her first collection. Gefa's designs have already been showcased at the California African American Museum and the Exposition Park Rose Garden, with plans for future displays in other venues.
