THEASO-EBI JUNKIE WEDDING, WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT

THEASOEBIJUNKIE WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT #thebashunion

Hello everyone,

Hope you are enjoying the long holiday if you are in Nigeria and Barka da Sallah to our Muslim community.

Today I’m bringing back your favourite series on this blog #theweekendspoltlight

This is actually the first one this year 🙈 ( check the last one HERE ) but over the weekend, a particular traditional wedding broke our timeline on different social media platforms with the hashtag #thebashunion and this triggered the need to bring back this series.

It was such a beautiful and colorful event with top celebrities and society ladies in attendance.

One striking thing about this wedding is that they didn’t choose any fabric as asoebi but they only made a uniform asooke for their party guests as asooke asoebi and it was beautiful.

Like I normally say here even though I’m a fabric vendor, when you want to choose asoebi always consider your guests. If a uniform gele be it #segogele or asooke will be perfect and affordable then it’s okay. You don’t have to use or sell fabrics as asoebi.

In this case , their party guests are high class ladies so money is not even a factor and most of these wealthy folks even give out asoebi for FREE. But it could be due to time frame because manufacturing and shipping fabrics in large quantity takes like a month to 6weeks that’s for air freight but asooke is made locally and it will be faster to get and distribute.

So choose whatever works for you and make it easy for your guests . You can choose affordable fabrics of great quality as asoebi or you can choose quality asooke gele or Sego gele for your asoebi or just pick a color code. Remember the most important thing is to have your guests honour you with their presence at your party.

Now let’s see the beautiful party guests we spotted at #thebashunion last weekend in their lemon green or Chartreuse color asooke gele asoebi:

First of the gorgeous couple ( Dara and Tosin) in all white looking super stunning

Then in their asooke traditional outfit ( Did you notice they are wearing different but complementary colors)

Now to the party guests in fabulous fabrics with the asooke :

Then some other party guests in different gorgeous designs without the asoebi gele but still caught our attention as they are spectacular in different colors also:

What do you think about #thebashunion traditional wedding? Share your thoughts in the comments section and will you use only asooke gele as asoebi for your party? Let me know why.

Cheers,

Modupe

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:

THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS

THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS: CHRISTIAN MOTHERS OF ST. MARY’S CATHOLIC CHURCH

Hello everyone,

Sometimes last month, one of our very good customers who keeps referring us to her loved ones for single purchases and Asoebi reached out to us to supply sego headtie to the women (Christian Mothers) of her church within 24hrs and we just had to swing into action and arranged for about 50pieces of royal blue sego gele.

Sego gele is one of our options for budget friendly Asoebi, which I also recommend for weddings. If you want the Asoebi effect at your event and you don’t want your friends to “break the bank”, the easiest and cheapest way to do this and still have fabulous Asoebi ladies is to pick a unique color combo but since you are not selling Fabrics like laces or Ankara, you will have to pick a fabric color that is classic. Something like white which is what these women chose and then you can pick a sego color that will blend with your event’s color theme.

Other colors that are classic and will be easy to find in every woman’s wardrobe that you can choose as Asoebi Fabric color are gold, pink, blue and teal green.

But here the Beautiful women of St. MARY’S CATHOLIC CHURCH chose white and Royal blue and they turned out exceptionally beautiful and slayed on a budget.

Check out their pictures from the event below:

What do you think about their color combination? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

And don’t forget we are still the best in supplying quality and exquisite fabrics at budget friendly prices for Asoebi and single purchase.

To order, 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

ASO-EBI INSPIRATION, TREND ALERT

PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2018 – ULTRA VIOLET

Lovely day to you all,  as our custom every year we bring to you the forecast color by Pantone which most times is the color that trend all through the year in the fashion world. 

So if you’re having your wedding this year and you are still trying to choose a color theme, Pantone says Ultraviolet is the go to color for 2018.

According to Pantone, Ultraviolet is ” A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

Color of the Year 2018 - Quote from Lee Eiseman

Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own”. 

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection. 

In our next post, we will be listing other colors that can match ultra violet perfectly for your asoebi color combination or for your event color theme.

2017 wedding colors

2017 Hot Asoebi color: Silver 

Hello my beautiful readers, 

The wedding season is fully here now.   And we have seen and also supplied lots of fabulous aso-ebi colors this year so  today we will be looking at one of the hottest  asoebi color for 2017 which is SILVER. 

Before now, brides and party hosts prefer bright colors for their party guests asoebi but recently they tend to shift to the subtle and sexy side thus trying out not so loud yet gorgeous colors like silver.  Some prefer to use the silver on silver monotone combination while others mix silver with black, white or red to spice it up a bit. I personally love the silver color because it pops out on every skin tone and it exudes class and elegance. 

Incase you have an event coming up or you are planning for your wedding this year but you haven’t made a decision on your asoebi color,  then Silver is one Color you might want to consider. 

Below are pictures of some party guests offering so much ‘sauce’  in silver :
