Rave of the moment: LamĂ© 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 LamĂ© Fabric đŸ’„

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.

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:

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,
