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.

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.

BOUBOU STYLES

Hello everyone,

Hope y’all doing well? I promised to be consistent but I haven’t kept to my promise in my last post HERE

But as they say it’s better late than never 😉

Eid holidays will soon be here and you get to see loads of rams up for sale around Lagos at this time which is a reminder that Eid- Kabir is around the corner.

Fashion wise, it’s a time where the whole family source for fabrics perfect for Eid.

One of the most comfortable outfits yet elegant styles for women at this time is the BOUBOU style. It’s easy to make and very comfortable to wear as you can move around, serve food, attend to visitors during the festive season.

The last time I had a party and I was confused on what to make with my asoebi because I didn’t have enough time to get it to a tailor on time infact I had less than 24hrs and I just didn’t want to make iro and buba, I just asked someone to make my fabric into a BOUBOU and I got it ready in less than 1hr. I just matched it a turban, long earrings, bracelet and wristwatch and I was so happy unfortunately I didn’t get to take pictures which would have been perfect for this post.

But here, I have some beautiful BOUBOU style options for you to choose from incase you are opting for the comfortable yet elegant look:

Guipure laces are one of the best fabrics for boubou styles but the truth is I have seen amazing boubou styles made from tulle laces, adire fabrics, brocade fabrics and even Ankara fabrics. So it all depends on your budget. You can use guipure lace, cord lace, milk fibre lace (like I showed you in my last post HERE), silk fabric, chiffon fabric etc

On choosing colors for boubou, I personally love the classic white for boubous. White colour is versatile as you can match it with any color of turban or asooke and it’s so easy to accessorize.

Also depending on your body size, you can opt for a colorful fabric, prints or plain. I love to use plain fabric even though in my last birthday photo shoot HERE I wore a multicoloured guipure lace boubou which was so beautiful but because my fashion language is subtle yet stunning I still prefer plain fabrics for boubou.

Let see more pictures:

What’s your take on boubou styles? Let me know in the comments section.

Also note we have loads of fabrics (plain and patterned) perfect for boubou styles.

And we can easily help you make one and ship to you anywhere in the world.

To order fabrics for boubou, please call or WhatsApp 2347033040834

You can also send email to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com

We deliver within and outside of Lagos state and internationally.

We look forward to your patronage

So there’s a new kid in the block of fashion fabrics and I thought to show you guys this beautiful , skin friendly, comfortable and easy breezy fabric called MILK FIBRE LACE.

I personally love this fabric because it’s versatile and beautiful. It feels light but of a good density and quality.

It’s a timeless classic (especially the white colour ) which is perfect for boubou or A-LINE dresses. You can style MILK FIBRE LACE into our evergreen top and wrapper aka iro and buba or make a shift dress.
