Why Hello There! My name is Chioma Alade and I am Founder & Creative Director of Studio-Chi Design. I was the kid who spent her money on sweets, cupcakes and Vogue. I believe an event worth celebrating should be celebrated well. My passion is using my years of experience working in the bridal industry to create the day of your dreams.
Studio-Chi Design House is your one stop wedding and event ingredient. As a Planner, Florist, Designer and Stationer I work intimately with my brides and grooms to create a day uniquely theirs.
This is my dream. As an Arts Degree student , fashion crafting and design intern I learned what luxury looked like. How the process occurs and what it feels like. Pursing my design dreams 8 years ago as a graduate wasn't possible. So I worked my other passion. Selling diamonds to the brides I wished I could create for. I worked as a features editor for a bridal magazine, I styled and planned many weddings. I became a celebrated wedding commentator and blogger.
In spite of this I was consistently being hired by brides to tell decorators what to do, as brides couldn't quite articulate their elegant fine art dreams to decorators and florists. And decorators were not interpreting in proposals what brides wanted. One day my Father sat me down and said, its time you believe in yourself and your dreams.
When I was a bride I was looking for a wedding with feeling, and it seemed like so many vendors were offering the same thing. Packages that were cookie cut and tablescapes I'd seen a hundred times before. Often because the dream look or flowers feel inaccesible.
The only thing my weddings have in common is high quality, elegance and luxury. Luxury is the experience, the artistry and the impact my team brings to every facet of your day. From installations to centrepieces to your custom crest logo. I want to create a day that exudes the essence of the two people coming together. Intentional design. So that everything else is up to you.
I cannot wait to be a part of your day.
