THEASOEBIJUNKIE TEXTILE FAIR

TGIF my lovelies,

Am excited to announce to you that theasoebjunkie (your No. 1 hub for anything fabrics) is bringing to you Nigeria’s first ever textile fair!!!

It’s going to be happening  live in Lagos on the 6th of December 2014 at Our place, No. 7a Olufunmilola okikiolu street off Toyin street, Ikeja.

This fair is going to be the foremost platform for the display of fashion fabrics and African prints in Nigeria.

It will provide fabric vendors the opportunity to showcase their products and brands to fabric lovers
and fashion designers in the Nigerian fashion industry.

There will be sales of different kinds of exquisite fabrics: Lace, Ankara, Brocade, Chiffon, Silk, Cotton Fabrics etc

Also sales of colorful and quality aso-oke fabrics and gele like Sego and even bedding, curtains and much more will be at the fair.

Creative designers will also be there to showcase their crafts as well, so you can buy fabrics and pick a designer at the fair.

If you are having a party and you need to organize aso-ebi, then you must not miss this fair because there will be lots of amazing aso-ebi deals from various vendors to choose from and you also get help with color combinations from them.

ASO-EBI EXTRAVAGANZA

In the month of July I started a series tagged ‘asoebi inspiration’ here where I posted various pictures of party guests in a particular aso-ebi for different parties. In the second edition here, I  also showcased random asoebi pictures of party guests in groups to inspire you in selecting aso-ebi colors and fabrics.

Today’s post is another edition of showcasing amazing color combinations of beautiful fabrics that can help you in making fast decision on the aso-ebi uniform for your event.

But one striking thing about this post is that am changing the series name from ‘asoebi inspiration’ to ‘aso-ebi extravaganza” because i will be displaying pictures of assorted aso-ebi groups of both men and women for you to enjoy, its going to be some sort of aso-ebi  carnival.

So let’s get down to the ASO-EBI EXTRAVAGANZA proper *winks*

GO GUIPURE! GO FIGURE!

Hello my lovelies,

Earlier in the year, I made a trend alert post about the Guipure lace fabric here explaining how ‘hot’ this fabric is at the moment.

The Guipure lace also known as cord lace is still very vibrant on the fashion scene in Nigeria, used by brides as buba or top with aso-oke wrapper for traditional weddings or a complete set of iro and buba for Introduction ceremony.

Wedding guests are also not left out as they use it as aso-ebi, creating beautiful and unique styles ranging from iro and buba to tops as well as dresses. Guipure lace can also be used to make formal outfits/work wears or chic party/ dinner wears.

Recently, I have seen lots of stylish women mix and match the Guipure lace mixed with other fabrics like sequined lace, ankara, brocade even with silk fabric tastefully designed to stand out of the crowd graciously.

The Guipure lace is still the rave of the moment and it’s going to stay long on the Nigerian fashion scene, so if you want to keep up with the trend, go get yourself some yards of Guipure lace and replicate some of these amazing styles for that elegant appearance at your next owambe:
