THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS

NEW FABRIC ALERT: BROCADE JACQUARD

Hello my stylish asoebi lovers,

Today I will be introducing a new fabric which is actually the rave of the moment in the Nigerian Fashion Scene.

Not yet common but most women of style have one or two patterns of this gorgeous fabric in their closet.

The brocade/jacquard fabric is one of those timeless fabric that will always stand out at any time.
A brocade is merely an example of a jacquard, a heavy fabric with acolorful allover raised pattern or floral design with an embossed or embroidered effect; it may or may not incorporate gold or silver threads.

One thing that made me fall in love with the brocade fabric when I got the first delivery is the floating designs on the surface plus the rich opulent looks👌

This fabric oozes elegance! It’s classy and super stunning yet skin friendly.

It’s perfect for dresses, tops and skirts or top and wrapper but you need a very creative and innovative designer to get the best out of this fabric. This is a timeless fabric, so please invest in getting a great design from a good tailor.

Let’s see some gorgeous designs and colors that we currently have in stock for you to purchase:

Which of these is your favourite design? Let me know in the comments section.

📍Prices are between 30,000 Naira and 40,000 Naira for 5yards

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:

Hello everyone,

It’s been a long time I posted on here but we have been active on our social media pages.( Please follow us @theasoebijunkie on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter)

This is actually my first post in 2019 ( covers face) and the year is half gone already. Let me just say I just got out of #writersblock because I keep trying to bring content here but some issues either from business or family will take up my time and I kept postponing.

But here we are today , a new post finally and I hope to continue to be consistent from now on.

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.

MILK FIBRE LACE is so similar to guipure but it’s lighter than guipure on the body and so soft on the skin.

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.

Here are some pictures of this gorgeous fabric in beautiful colors that we have available for sale:

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 😃

ANKARA JUNKIE, ASO-EBI INSPIRATION, WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT

ANKARA ASOEBI #FAAJI2018

Hello my beautiful readers,

Last weekend was the multicultural traditional wedding of the Son of Oyo state Governor Senator Ajimobi (Idris Ajimobi) and Daughter of Kano state Governor Ganduje (Fatima Ganduje)

Immediately I saw it in the news, I developed interest and stalked their hashtag FAAJI2018 which was indeed a display of the Hausa and Yoruba cultures ranging from the bride’s hausa costume,Asooke, Durban horses, royal event theme, henna night and so many beautiful and magnificent expose of the richness of our diversity in Nigeria.

Another aspect which is my major interest is the asoebi. Because this is a society wedding and both parents are politicians, I was expecting that the event will be filled with a sorts of Swiss laces as asoebi but to my pleasant surprise, I saw their beautiful guests slaying in colorful Ankara fabrics. OMG!!! To say I was elated will be an understatement.

Remember few weeks back HERE, I made a post on Ankara aso-ebi. And I was trying to show you how your guests can slay stylishly in Ankara fabrics at budget friendly rates.

So when I saw that # FAAJI2018 was filled with mainly Ankara designs, I was excited because this shows that you can use Ankara fabric aso-ebi for your event not just because you have a low budget but because you just want to appreciate and give you event that Naija or African Vibe.

Let’s see some of the pictures from # FAAJI2018 :

The pretty Bride and

The guests in different gorgeous Ankara fabrics :

Awesome! Awesome display of the Nigerian culture.

Also check out this picture of the bride and her friends in the Fulani traditional attire :

Then the Wakanda formation of the groom’s friends :

All in all, # FAAJI2018 was splendid and I wish Idris and Fatima Ajimobi a very peaceful marriage filled with all the good things of life.

Cheers,

Modupe

MATCHING COLORS FOR ULTRA VIOLET 

Hello my beautiful readers, 

In my post about the pantone color for the year HERE,  I promised to make a post stating colors that will match the color of the year – ULTRA VIOLET  perfectly incase you want to use it for your event’s asoebi or your event’s color theme. 

Here are some colors that you can combine with ultraviolet to get a perfect match :
1. White

If you want a subtle ‘feel’ as your theme this year, ultra violet and white is the way to go. This combination will be fabulous as asoebi. Get a white lace fabric plus ultra violet asooke for your guests from us and let them show up in style . 

2. Champagne 

If you want something elegant, I will advise you choose champagne gold either as your event’s color theme or guests aso-ebi. For asoebi,  ultra violet lace with champagne gold headtie or cap will do the magic

3.Green

If you are a fan of colors and you really want a vibrant theme, then green and ultra violet  will give you that colorful yet unique effect.

Another ‘ hot’ combination is ultraviolet and red. For aso-ebi, red lace fabric with ultraviolet gele will make your guest appear super sexy. And if you want a sexy theme,  red and ultra violet  will be perfect this year. 

6. Pink

Pink and ultra violet is just so ‘girly’.  I love the combo and you can either use hot pink for #loud effect or baby pink for a #subtleandsexy effect. 

For aso-ebi, I will advise a baby pink fabric and ultra violet gele or cap. 

7. Lilac 

This is a very classy combination. Lilac and ultra violet will be  beautiful as your event’s color theme or guest’s aso-ebi. 

For asoebi, ultraviolet fabric and Lilac gele will make heads turn.
