Simply Kayo Centrepieces at AFWL Banquet at The Dorchester

Hey loves

Sorry it’s taken a while to get this post out but here it is. As you all know, Simply Kayo was an official partner and sponsor of Africa Fashion Week London that took place just over a week ago. The 3 day fashion show culminated in a fundraising Arts and Fashion Banquet at the prestigious Dorchester Hotel on Sunday 4th August.

The event was hosted by Nigerian business woman and socialite Princess Fifi Ejindu, and was in aid of the Georges Malaika Foundation.

It was a lovely night with a delicious 3 course dinner, great company and beautiful centrepieces by Simply Kayo. The ankara centrepieces were a nod to African print and the overall mission of AFWL. Check out the iPhone pictures below. What do you think of Ankara print flowers?

Muchos love

Moodboard Monday…Blue and Gold

Hey dolls

Another trawl of Pinterest inspired this week’s Moodboard Monday theme. I saw the blue and gold church and fell in love. It’s just stunning! Who wouldn’t want to get married here? As I was searching for images I came across various blue and gold table design ideas and thought I’d showcase the different things you could do with your table, using this colour scheme. Let me know which one you like best loves.

Moodboard Monday…The Asian Bride

Hi dolls

A casual browse of Pinterest turned into a bit of inspiration for this week’s Moodboard Monday. I was actually looking for another theme entirely but was distracted by this gorgeous image of an asian bride. I absolutely love the richness of the culture and how this is showcased in clothes, jewellery, accessories and decor. Feast your eyes on this my lovelies.

Hello darlings

So we’re cheating a little this week. Our inspiration is more of a theme than one particular item. Here’s a very condensed view of Simply Kayo’s events last year. Lovely couples, amazing venues and talented suppliers. Let us know what you think of this moodboard.

Launch of Weddings by Harrods

Hello darlings

So last week was the launch of the highly anticipated Weddings by Harrods. Unfortunately I couldn’t be there myself but thankfully SK was well represented by the lovely Abena. It was a lovely evening; with great canapes, champagne and operatic style entertainment. The delightful Sonia Abrams, wedding planner for Harrods and organiser of the launch spoke about the gorgeous room in which the launch took place. It was a great opportunity to meet colleagues in the industry and by all accounts an enjoyable night all round. Here are the pictures, they’ll tell the story better than I can.

Simply Kayo Likes: ABO London

Hello darlings

Today marks the first of our Simply Kayo Likes blog posts. These posts will feature all things, not necessarily event related but definitely luxury, that we like. We begin with ABO London. If you haven’t heard of this duo before then do read on…

Tell us what ABO London is all about?

ABO London is an ethical independent brand that offers luxury fashion and interior accessories in the UK. Everything is made in England. All our designs are based on original artworks made by Aliya. ABO London is pushing the boundaries between art and fashion and making art wearable.


What inspired you to start your business? How did the 2 of you come together to start ABO London?

We both had a passion for fashion and always wanted to start a business. We focused on accessories like scarves because they are so versatile and different, they can emphasize your style, protect you and be part of the outfit. We combined our various skills like business development, marketing, media, communications and other to create a brand ABO London.

In only 3 words describe what ABO London represents?

Ethical artistic luxuries.


Which scarf in your collection is your favourite?

I really like the triangle scarves as each has two designs in one accessory and it can be worn in so many ways and it is also unisex. There are guys who like to wear it like cravats around their neck under the shirt. Another favourite scarf is the large one from new collections. It even can be worn as a sarong.

Who would you love to see in one of your scarves?

I would love to see Kate Middleton, because the scarves are very artistic and elegant and that will match her style.


What plans do you have for ABO London in the future?

We would like to grow brand further on and create new products. Few months ago we added cushions to ABO line. We would like to be sold globally.

Where can our readers find you?

We stock at Wolf&Badger in Dover Street, Mayfair and Amaka just behind Oxford Circus. We also have website and can be seen on few online marketplace.
