THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS, TREND ALERT

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.


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

THE TEXTILE FAIR

THE TEXTILE FAIR LAGOS 2018

Hello my lovelies,

The Textile Fair Lagos is back!!!! *Inserts a dance emoji* .

As you all know, THEASOEBIJUNKIE is all about African Fabrics and fashion. And in 2014, we started a fair tagged The Textile Fair Lagos where we gather vendors of high quality Fabrics, creatively designed ready to wear pieces for adults and kids plus unique fashion accessories but stopped along the line.

And because our past vendors keep disturbing that we should bring the fair back, we had to listen and the next edition will be on the 1st of December 2018 at Lagos Airport Hotel Ikeja Lagos.

So if you love great bargains and you have been waiting for our next sales, The Textile Fair Lagos is the place to be this weekend because not only will THEASOEBIJUNKIE brand be there with Exquisite Fabrics as usual but there will be other vendors selling all things Fashion at discounted prices.

It’s going to be an amazing family Christmas shopping event as there will be something for everyone.

Did I mention that there will be free master classes on gele tying, party makeup, fashion styling and I will be teaching on the business of fabrics . So if you want to start a fabric business in 2019 and you need some tips/advice or you have questions on the business of fabrics? You should make it a date.

Another good news is that we have goody bags for the first 50 shoppers and when you purchase goods worth 10k and above from vendors, you get a raffle ticket to win beautiful Fabrics.

So you see we have a lot lined up at The Textile Fair Lagos 2018 with good music and food from our food vendors.

And above all admission to this event is FREE!!

Please make it a date with your family and tell a friend to tell another friend.

In my next post, I will be showcasing brands to look out for at The Textile Fair Lagos but for more updates kindly follow @thetextilefairlagos on Instagram.

Can’t wait to see y’all on Saturday and please if you are a blog reader, kindly stop by our stand and say Hi to me 😃

THEASOEBIJUNKIE WEDDING – #JR2017

Hello everyone,

We will not allow the month of love(February) to end without sharing beautiful pictures from the wedding of our #christmas couple.

The bride as being an amazing customer for about two years (or more), so when she contacted us that she was getting married, I was so excited. She chose coral red and teal green for her wedding theme, so we stated with her aso-ebi fabric and I sent her options that fit into her color theme/budget and in a short while we sealed the asoebi deal. She’s the calmest bride ever! Then we moved to family fabrics and we sealed that too as well as fabrics for her own outfits, asooke and sego headtie (s) and the native handfan for delta brides.

Let’s see these fabrics in pictures as we celebrate this amazing couple displaying so much love at their traditional wedding.

Bride’s first outfit – Fabric and headtie from us

She slayed stylishly in our teal green tulle lace embellished with pearls and stones matched with our beaded sego headtie

Here she steps out with her boo in her second outfit which I really love because she allowed me style her in champagne gold monotone combo.

Fabric is champagne gold George with matching tulle blouse.

Headtie was champagne gold asooke fully embellished with Swarovski stones and gold pearls

Handfan was also embellished with stones (we had to go all out for our bride)

Here is our pretty bride with her brothers in Atiku and teal green asooke caps also styled by us

Now to the asoebi Fabrics, her female friends and colleagues turned up in this colorful yet classy/beautiful tulle lace with white sego gele that blends perfectly into her color theme and also makes you think of Christmas while the male counterparts wore white Atiku with coral red caps. All supplied by us!

I really wished we got more pictures of the asoebi Fabrics but from the few we got, we have no doubt that everyone slayed in different gorgeous designs.

We appreciate the couple for choosing us to style them and their amazing families and guests on their big day.

We pray that God bless their home and that their love for each other abound forever.

Thanks again for choosing Theasoebijunkie.

If you are a bride and you need our services for traditional bridal styling for any tribe in Nigeria, please send us a mail at theasoebijunkie@gmail.com or call/whatsapp 07033040834 and we will take the stress of you.

Cheers,
