Known for using subtle African influences combined with the use of corsetry and boned bodice to recreate the classical and elegant hourglass figure that curve and shape the bride, Kosibah's designs are often recognizable as this is their signature silhouette.

Yemi describes the Kosibah bride as a discerning professional woman who is accustomed to luxury products of the highest standards and who has a strong sense of style and wants a gown a little different from the norm without compromising on taste and/or elegance.
