Spotting a gap in the market after an unsuccessful search to find modern invitation designs that showcased her vibrant Nigerian heritage prompted designer Ify Ojo to seriously consider creating her own range and led to the founding of Bibi Invitations; an exquisite range of wedding and special occasion invitations designed to capture the vibrant celebratory spirit of Nigerian, and indeed many African special occasions. The company was officially launched in 2012 by three friends; Ify Ojo and Omena Babalola who are based in Canada, and Chinelo Agazie who is based in the UK. Whether its layers and textures, or shimmer and shine finished with an indulgent flourish of contrasting ribbon; Bibi Invitations luxurious designs are inspired by traditional African fabrics such as Kente, Aso Oke, and Bogolanfini (Mudcloth); and are organised into three collections. Meaning Peacock in Yoruba, the Okin Signature Collection features intricate die-cutting in patterns that echo Swiss lace, Aso Oke, and traditional African embroidery enhanced by foil stamping on a range of metallic papers. The Ifeoma Collection is bright and bold inspired by the ever-popular Dutch Wax prints; whilst the colourful Abena Collection offers stylish affordability.
