ANKARA ASOEBI 

Hello my beautiful readers, 

In the beginning of the year,  a lot of us write down our targets for the year and make new year resolutions. Asoebi is one word that people tend to rule out of their purchase because a lot of people see it as overpriced and overrated. People now make new year resolution not to buy Asoebi in order to increase their savings. 

Well in as much as I will agree that some people abuse the purpose of asoebi which is a very beautiful display of our culture at events/parties because it signifies love and unity amongst families and friends, I tell people from time to time, you don’t have to break the bank because of asoebi. It’s not necessary that you have to use an expensive fabric as aso-ebi but try and get a good quality fabric that will give your guests good value for their money and something they can Re-rock after your event (I still don’t get why some people wear asoebi only once). 

That’s why today’s post is focused on using Ankara fabric as asoebi for that colorful yet classy turn up of  guests at your next event. Ankara is much more cheaper than lace but please get a good quality. You can get beautiful Ankara fabrics at best rates  from us at Theasoebijunkie. Call/whatsapp 2347033040834 or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com. 

Below are some party guests in Ankara asoebi at different parties:

Do have a fun filled Friday. 

Cheers,

PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2018 – ULTRA VIOLET

Lovely day to you all,  as our custom every year we bring to you the forecast color by Pantone which most times is the color that trend all through the year in the fashion world. 

So if you’re having your wedding this year and you are still trying to choose a color theme, Pantone says Ultraviolet is the go to color for 2018.

According to Pantone, Ultraviolet is ” A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

Color of the Year 2018 - Quote from Lee Eiseman

Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own”. 

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection. 

In our next post, we will be listing other colors that can match ultra violet perfectly for your asoebi color combination or for your event color theme.

TURBANS/HEADWRAPS

Hey lovelies, 

Last year turbans made a terrific come back into the Nigerian fashion scene and it became a ‘rave’. I remember some 20yrs back when my mum use to rock the turban fabric as headtie on Ankara dresses. Then she had the stripped and multicolored long velvet turbans that was like a scarf and you have to wrap it around your head for that elegant look. Now the new turban/ headers are easy to wear  because it’s sewn into a cap shape and all you need to  do is wrap the ‘tail’ part round and you are good to slay and pepper dem! 

Also these headwraps have been twisted a bit to fit into our current fashion ‘taste’ and loads of party guests who can’t handle the stress of tying gele now opt for the turbans. They now come in different gorgeous designs and colors made from all sorts of beautiful fabrics and not just velvet fabrics. And are super comfortable (which is a very important factor in fashion).

The turban is now an essential part of your native wear wardrobe and can be worn on all kinds of outfits to create an elegant look especially on a bad hair day.  Every woman needs a turban! 

Let’s see some amazing samples that caught my eyes on Instagram :

Peach asooke turban embellished with pearls

Sequined velvet pink turban

Gold silk turban

Silver plain velvet turban

Army green velvet turban

Classic white turban embellished with pearls and stones

Red beaded tulle lined with velvet turban

Champagne gold silk turban

Silver turban embellished with studs

Fuschia pink plain velvet turban

White beaded tulle lined with velvet turban

Black engraved damask fabric turban

Cobalt blue plain velvet turban with brooch

Emerald green plain velvet turban

What’s your opinion about turbans and headdress? Do you have a favorite from the pictures? I will like to know in the comments section. 

Have a great day ahead.

My Owanbe Weekend 

Hello my beautiful readers, 

Over the weekend, my friend from way back invited me to a wedding party at classique events place Oregun and I was excited about it because my social life has been a bit dull as I’m always busy with business and family. But this is one friend I can’t say no to and I really enjoyed myself which is why I took some pictures for a post because most of the time I share with you style post of customers and stylish women that catch my fancy in order to inspire our African/traditional fashion  sense as well as different unique fabrics in stock for sale. And you don’t really get to see the face behind the brand so I think this is an opportunity to show my face. 

Enjoy the beautiful pictures of myself and my friends at my Owanbe :
