LASER CUT FABRICS 

Hello everyone, 

Today I want to introduce another amazing and very versatile fabric that is fast taking over the fashion scene and lots of ladies are making drop dead gorgeous outfits from it- LASER CUT LACE. 

 Laser cut lace fabric is intricate, elegant and has a classic pattern that makes you stand out in any outfit. 

Laser cutting used to be reserved for haute couture designs. But as consumers began lusting for the technique, and the technology was made more readily available to manufacturers, it’s become commonplace to see laser-cut silk and soft leather to make gorgeous lace designs. 

There are different types of laser cut designs as shown below :

Laser cut embellished with pearls and stones

Cream plain laser cut lace

This amazing fabric can be styled into blouse and wrapper, iro and bubble as well as dresses but please get a good tailor or fashion designer to make exquisite designs that will make you slay stylishly.

Cotton Fabrics (Atiku) for men

Hello people, 

Even though we cater for male fabric needs on request,  we haven’t really devoted any post to sales of male fabrics and that’s about to change as today’s post is dedicated to our male readers who have been making inquires on  Atiku fabrics. 

If you are non-nigerian,  you might be wondering what Atiku is ? Well,  Atiku fabric is a pure cotton fabric that is not as thick or heavy as brocade. 

This fabric is commonly used by men from the Northern part of Nigeria and our former  Vice president- Alhaji Atiku Abubakar  who is a northerner, rocked this fabric in different colors during his tenure in the most stylish way that made most men in Nigeria want to replicate his style and So the fabric was named after the former vice president Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. 

The cotton fabric is either plain, stripped or patterned. Its mostly 100% cotton,  easy-breezy and soft on the skin. Mostly dyed in subtle colors but every guy should at least have a white Atiku fabric in their closet. It’s a classic wear! 

They come in different grades depending on your budget. Today I will be showing us a ‘medium’ grade quality which is a good one that we have available for sale at the moment. There are ‘higher’ grades like the HKG, Filtex etc but these are budget friendly ones that are pure cotton and of great quality (pictures not doing justice) :

How to choose a tailor

Hello beautiful people,

Today’s post is on a very controversial topic and a question I get regularly as a fabric vendor from clients. Getting a good tailor or fashion designer seems like hardwork especially in Lagos and when you get a good tailor,so many times they are not so affordable especially at this time in Nigeria.

And I get so skeptical referring my clients to tailors especially clients that are not within lagos because you just cant be too sure…..

So personally, I put some factors in consideration before I choose my tailors ( yes I have  more than One) which I will like to share with you our awesome readers and followers:

1. Type/cost of fabric : For some reasons, I have different tailors for differnt kind of fabrics.

 For instance if I want to sew ankara fabric or a silk fabric that costs less than 5000 Naira, I will take it to low budget tailors around me but one thing I will always check is the finishing of clothes he/ she has sewn before. I will not pay so much for a cheap or low quality fabric but I will ensure I get a neat job. You will be surprised at how good some ‘local’ tailors are when it comes to sewing. But if the fabric in question is expensive , I will not take the risk of giving it to just anyone.

2. Intending style: Another factor I consider is the style I want to make.

Most times if I see a nice design on a person or on someone’s ( with my kind of body structure) social media page , I could approach the person and ask for details of the tailor that made it and patronise such tailors instead of disturbing my head trying to get a new tailor to replicate the design. But if I need to make a simple boubou or regular iro and buba, any regular tailor can make that and I always give them one of my best buba as sample so as to avoid mistakes

3. Creativity: I also check how creative some tailors are by asking them to sketch a design that will suit my body type. If the tailor can sketch something nice right in presence , I can trust him/her to make nice outfits.

4. Time frame: Another major problems with tailors is their ability to deliver on time. So I have learnt to always give them ample time by sending my fabric to them on time.

When you know your tailor is good at what he/she does which also means he/she will always be busy, you need to send fabrics like 2weeks before use.

Another tip is to update your native wear wardrobe with basic colors from time to time (check my post on native wardrobe staples HERE), so you always have something to wear when there’s an ’emergency’ party or event.

5. Test run:This is another tip I use when I see nice designs displayed by a tailor online or offline, I will first of all do a test run by giving him/her a cheap fabric to ‘test ‘ his/her handiwork .The  outcome of the ‘test’ will determine my final decision.

Do you have any tip you will like to share on this topic or will you like to share your experience with different tailors? Please share in the comments section

Do have a great week ahead.
