Listen, when I saw these images floating around the internets, I had to track down the designer.
According to My Music Grind:
Buki Ade is a Nigerian-American designer and entrepreneur dominating the swimwear industry through her culturally inclusive designs — Bfyne. Buki gained inspiration to start her line while on vacation searching for a unique swimsuit; there she realized the industry lacked creativity and representation of African designers.”
Buki Ade’s swimwear can be seen in Vogue, Glamour, and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Oh, and you can actually buy these pieces! Shop the store HERE.
An unapologetic tribute to women’s curves and confidence, with purposely cut lines and strategically placed seams to make any figure alluring. . Shop the entire collection on Bfyne.com Featuring SAHARA, EMPIRE & PHOENIX collections ??? . Special thanks to: ?: @dera.visuals X @cvrlosnunez X @clifellis

Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
