FAVOURITE BRIDES OF FIRST QUARTER OF 2020

Hello everyone,

Welcome to a new week! And a very big thank you to everyone that patronised us during our international women’s Day sales HERE.Thank you all so much. We appreciate your patronage greatly.

Today, I will be showing pictures of some beautiful brides in their traditional wedding outfits as they represent different cultures in Nigeria .

I particularly love their combination of colors, choice and use of jewelry/ adornments , accessories etc without overriding the culture of their respective tribes.

Also , they all display class and elegance! Indeed Less is more. The subtle make up and stunning designs made from traditional fabrics made them look so graceful and super stylish.

So if you are a 2020 bride, you can draw inspiration from any of these brides to look classy and elegant on your big day.

Rave of the moment: Lamé Fabric

Hello everyone and can I still say Happy New Year?🙈 Since it’s my first post here in the year 2020.
How has the new year been so far? Hope you are smashing your new year goals already?

Well, it’s 2020 and a lot is happening in the fashion/fabric scene especially in Nigeria and Africa generally. So if you are a lover of African fashion, get ready for a dramatic turn as we are bringing new Fabrics and fashion houses are churning out amazing pieces which I will be sharing from time to time here.

So today, I’m sharing one of the new entrants that made way into our fashion scene late last year and it’s taking over at the moment because of the versatility of the fabric. It’s the Lamé Fabric 💥

This is a shiny fabric made with metallic threads. It’s lustrous, smooth, with a fluid drape, semi-sheer/opaque.
Lamé comes in different varieties, depending on the composition of the other threads in the fabric. Common examples are tissue lamé, hologram lamé and pearl lamé.

So if the memo says sparkle and shine, Hollywood glamour or you just want to shine bright like diamonds to your next event, the Lamé fabric is your best bet.

And it’s so versatile that you can make amazing dress styles in different lengths with it like wrap dresses, Kaftans, even our ever green iro and buba, boubous, jumpsuits and many more that I will be showing you samples of but first let’s take a look at the fabric:

Now let’s see some gorgeous style inspirations on these beautiful ladies creatively designed from this stunning fabric:


Metallic threads should never be exposed to high heat in a clothes dryer or while ironing. Use a clothes steamer to remove wrinkles and be sure to keep the steamer nozzle at least 12 inches away from the fabric surface. If you must use an iron to remove wrinkles, use a low heat setting and always press from the wrong side while using a pressing cloth between the iron’s surface and the fabric.

Good news is some fashion brands like @funkeadepoju has some of these styles as ready to wear which you can just order for yourselves.

But if you need the fabric to make one of these or a totally different design depending on the look you want. Fabric is available in different colors as seen in the pictures and videos above.

To order online, please call or WhatsApp 2347033040834.
You can also send email to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com

2019 WEDDING COLOR, THEASO-EBI JUNKIE WEDDING, THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS, Uncategorized

2019 WEDDING COLOR: ORANGE

Hello my beautiful readers,

It’s almost the end of the year and there are loads of parties happening every weekend especially weddings.

And like I mentioned in my last “2019 wedding color” 👉HEREwhere I wrote about emerald green, some colors are always dominant in Nigeria every year especially during the party season. So our focus today is on the ORANGE COLOR.

Orange they say is the new black! And this bright and bold color has become a classic like black and it’s now a popular asoebi color. Most celebrants and brides want orange asoebi either for their friends or family members. Or sometimes choose that color for their parents outfits just to infuse this stunning color into their events.

It’s super beautiful on dark skin and also gorgeous on #brownskingirls. It naturally pops on every skin tone making a very bold and bright statement that makes the event colorful

You can combine orange with other colors in order to tone it down or up the brightness of the color .

I particularly love the monotone combo of orange fabric and orange headtie because it’s so elegant and classy as you can see in the following pictures :

Some of the colors you can combine with orange to tone it down or Brighten it includes: black, grey, royal blue, green, gold, white,lemon, purple


So if you are planning any event this year or towards early next year and you are still trying to make a decision on colors, I will suggest you choose orange.

If you need a complete color combination ideas for your wedding, don’t forget we offer color consultation services for events

Also if you need good quality asoebi Fabrics in orange or any other color, we sell beautiful fabrics for asoebi from 8000 Naira for 5yards and above. Buy from us and let your guests slay stylishly.


Please contact us for any information on 2347033040834 or theasoebijunkie@gmail.com

NORTHERN NIGERIAN BRIDES

Sometimes a go I made a post HERE about the Hausa or Northern Nigerian Amariya I shared my thoughts about the beautiful Hausa/Fulani rich culture displayed at their weddings which is quite unique from other traditional weddings in Nigeria.

Over the years, the Amariya or Northern Nigerian brides have evolved in their fashion/style for their big day and I felt I should make another post on this.

In as much as we all know that Hausa especially the Fulani ladies are conservative but we can’t ignore how stunning they look naturally. Have you met some Shuwa Arab ladies?? OMG! They are super gorgeous.

Their smooth and shiny skin either dark or light, their long and soft sometimes curly hair , their love for perfumes and incense ( they love to smell nice)😉 are some of the attributes of the Northern Nigerian ladies.

They spend a lot of money on their hair/skin especially on natural skin care products from Arab countries and some parts of Nigeria ( Maiduguri in particular) where they have local spas that you can treat your skin with natural herbs at low costs.

When getting married, the northern Nigerian wedding is more of a festival especially for the bride.

The display of culture from the outfits to the makeup, henna, exquisite gold jewelry, unique veils is amazingly beautiful.
Since this is our focus on today’s post, grab your popcorn and check out these beautiful pictures of stunning Northern Nigerian brides and let me know what you think in the comments section:
