TURBANS/HEADWRAPS

Hey lovelies, 

Last year turbans made a terrific come back into the Nigerian fashion scene and it became a ‘rave’. I remember some 20yrs back when my mum use to rock the turban fabric as headtie on Ankara dresses. Then she had the stripped and multicolored long velvet turbans that was like a scarf and you have to wrap it around your head for that elegant look. Now the new turban/ headers are easy to wear  because it’s sewn into a cap shape and all you need to  do is wrap the ‘tail’ part round and you are good to slay and pepper dem! 

Also these headwraps have been twisted a bit to fit into our current fashion ‘taste’ and loads of party guests who can’t handle the stress of tying gele now opt for the turbans. They now come in different gorgeous designs and colors made from all sorts of beautiful fabrics and not just velvet fabrics. And are super comfortable (which is a very important factor in fashion).

The turban is now an essential part of your native wear wardrobe and can be worn on all kinds of outfits to create an elegant look especially on a bad hair day.  Every woman needs a turban! 

Let’s see some amazing samples that caught my eyes on Instagram :

LETS CLOTHE A KID THIS CHRISTMAS 2016

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to the month of November! Praise God we made it!

Like I mentioned in my post yesterday HERE, I can smell Christmas already and if you go to major markets and stores you will find Christmas trees and ornaments on display for sale signifying that the festive season is so near…….

And this brings us to my post of today on our charity project which we started last year tagged LETS CLOTHE A KID THIS CHRISTMAS which is targeted at putting a smile on less privileged children by giving them NEW clothes for Christmas. I shared how we came about this vision in this POST last year when we launched the project and the response was amazing. We got fabrics from individuals, fabric vendors within and outside Lagos and  a lot of talented designers also made fab clothes which we distributed at motherless babies homes to the glory of God.

2016 Christmas is near and we will like to clothe another set of 100 less privileged kids within Lagos and if possible across the country. To make this dream a reality, we need all the help we can get from individuals and corporate bodies within and outside Nigeria .

We will appreciate donations of-

*BRAND NEW CLOTHING FOR KIDS

*ALL KINDS OF FABRICS

*SERVICE OF FASHION DESIGNERS/TAILORS

Theasoebijunkie as a brand  already have reserved fabrics for this purpose, so volunteer designers can contact us on 07033040834 and we will send fabrics to you immediately.

For more information on how to donate or any other inquiry, kindly call/whats app 07033040834 or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com and we will be glad to reply you.

You can also ask questions as well as share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

God bless you.

FLORAL TULLE LACE

Hello my fabric lovers,

Its the end of the month of October and we are moving into a new month-November and I am definitely excited about this as I smell Christmas already !

Talking about Christmas, there are 3 Projects that we at Theasoebijunkie normally get involved in around this time every year which are – The Textile Fair Lagos, Lets clothe a kid and our annual fabric hampers sale but this Christmas we will be having just the Lets clothe a kid project and also sell our fabric hampers while the Textile Fair Lagos will not be holding due to logistics reasons and some other projects which we have been working on to make our brand serve you better that we will be unfolding to you all in a couple of weeks.

So beautiful people, as we did last year we will be collecting NEW FABRICS  to make BRAND NEW CHRISTMAS CLOTHES for less privileged kids from next month and we also need volunteer fashion designers/tailors that can make beautiful fabrics for free for these kids. More information on that will be up on the blog tomorrow in another post.

Back to our post for today, I will like to show us a new and not so new baby in the world of African laces that is so beautiful and versatile for my special ladies ……

The Floral tulle lace is a soft and high quality  lace made from tulle fabrics with floral embroidery on it.This fabric is a must in every woman’s closet as it gives a girly and elegant look whenever its worn irrespective kind of style or design made from it.

Also for women who want wear same fabric with their princesses/girls, this is the perfect fabric for your Mommy and Me picture as it is always super cool on little girls.

The floral tulle lace could be in a single color or multicolored (I love the multicolored designs), some have petals on the embroidery while some other ones are stoned but which ever you choose will make a stunning outfit if handled by a good tailor. I personally loved the soft feel it has on the skin and the way it glues on the skin is absolutely gorgeous.

Enough of my preaching (lol), lets see the beautiful fabrics in different designs and color mix:
