Hailing from Nigeria, Badamilola is a Chicago-based wedding dress and formal wear designer.

After high school,  he went to college, and studied fashion design, and then moved here to the states with his family in 2005.

While fashion was always a passion, in order to provide for his family, he wanted to go for nursing. However, fate would intervene and the class was full.

So he decided to fill up his time going back to fashion school while he waited for an opening in nursing school. But as time passed, he re-found his love for passion and decided to stay and finish fashion school, doing so in 2011. Badamilola has been working as a full-time fashion and bridal dress designer since then.
