THEASOEBIJUNKIE STARS: #OPEGOKE2015

It’s a new week people, let’s make the most of it as we pursue and work towards our 2016 goals.

Today am excited to bring to you another set of stars that stepped out slaying in different styles for the wedding of Mr and Mrs Afolabi.

Ope (bride)  got our contact details online and got in touch with us through WhatsApp. She had made her asooke somewhere and needed a beautiful orange fabric that is quite affordable to match the asooke.
We sent different options and she finally chose this unique orange tulle lace embellished with stones and pearls.

And on the 5th of December,  her friends turned up in different amazing styles made out of our fabric .
Here are some pictures of stylish guests/stars at #opegoke2015 in Theasoebijunkie fabric for your perusal :

And a big thank you also for allowing us to be part of your Big Day. We are very grateful and we do appreciate your patronage.

Cheers,

Silk and Chiffon

Happy Sunday Y’all,

So our giveaway sponsor Green Castle Dubai sent me some fabrics for a photo shoot and we made some beautiful iro and buba styles as well as dresses from the beautiful chiffon and silk mix/match fabrics.

When deciding styles to make from this fabrics, my being covered yet chic and classy mantra came to play because nudity is gradually taken over the fashion scene nowadays.
And as Africans, we love to look elegant and sophisticated but we also try to cover the appropriate parts of our body as females. Personally, I do not believe I have to expose parts of my body to feel/look sexy and as a fashion cum fabric blogger, I try to celebrate women who do not show their private parts but look absolutely stunning in well tailored African outfits.
I see my body as my treasure so will not expose it unnecessarily just like I will not expose my box of gold jewelry because I place so much value on it.

So in this photoshoot, I made some iro and buba  outfits with different kinds of sleeves with plain sego gele as my headtie .
My Tailor also made some maxi dresses from the fabrics to show us that chiffon and silk is not just for iro and buba but you can make dresses, shift dresses, maxi- dresses, tunic tops etc from them.
Let’s see some of the pictures:

THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS

LOOM ASOOKE

Hello Gorgeous People,
Today’s post is about the ancient and very famous Asooke fabric.
The Asooke fabric is known all over the world and has been infused into contemporary fashion by various fashion designers.
It’s is locally woven here in Nigeria and some other parts of Africa in fact we now have Asooke fabrics from China! You know the Chinese people can produce or replicate anything in the world but when it comes to the Asooke fabric, the best is from our local African weavers.

The regular Asooke that we know normally come in stripes. A set of Asooke has 8 stripes in the pack which can be used to make gele, ipele (for a woman) and one or two caps (for a man).
Three stripes of the set is stitched together to make one gele (Head gear), four stripes is stitched together to make one ipele (for the shoulder) and the remaining one will make a cap or two depending on the length of the Asooke.
The regular length of  Asooke is 90 inches and each stripe width is about  4inches.

But now the fashion world is improving and evolving all over the world and the Asooke fabric is not left out hence my post today on the LOOM ASOOKE.

Its a new dimension of weaving Asooke fabric which a lot of  people do not know about. The Loom Asooke is woven straight into the gele (headgear) size which means you don’t need to stitch 3stripes together like I explained earlier. Its just like ready to wear!
And also the ipele is made straight into the normal size, no stitching/joining involved.

The loom Asooke is the rave of the moment for those who know and it can be made as plain, multicoloured, metallic ,soge or even onjawu.
You can also ‘spice ‘ it up by applying blings on it or tack some beads or sequence on it in various design as a bride or party guests.

Let’s look at some samples of the loom Asooke and don’t forget to call/WhatsApp 07033040834 or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com to place orders for your Loom Asooke for personal use and party Asoebi quantity in whatever color or combination.
