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

To order online, please call or WhatsApp 2347033040834.

LOVE LOOKS LIKE US

LOVE LOOKS LIKE US

Hiya,
Hope your weekend was party filled? I have been so busy preparing for the TEXTILE FAIR LAGOS!

Am so excited about this second edition because its going to be much more bigger and better than the first one. So if you are in Lagos or will be in Lagos on the 27th of June 2015, please join us at Dehall events place beside Alausa shopping mall Ikeja and experience #fabricorgasm lol.
More details about the fair will be up in subsequent posts.

I get series of mails from brides-to be on how to combine colors for their traditional wedding in a way that both their outfit and that of their grooms will compliment each other perfectly especially when the colors of the bride’s outfit is too feminine and the groom is just the type that hate colors or a groom that will never wear anything loud but the usual monochrome(black and white) combo.

In view of this challenge, I have decided to start a new series tagged ‘ LOVE LOOKS LIKE US’ where I will be showcasing different brides and grooms in their traditional wedding outfits from different tribes in order to inspire and help you choose the right color combination together with your Man.
After which you can now proceed to choosing fabrics(thats where i come in .lol) that will make you command the attention of everyone on your Big day.
To contact me for your traditional wedding outfit fabrics, please call/whatsapp 07033040834 or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com.

Now lets see the pictures of some gorgeous couple in trad wedding outfit declaring to everyone that love looks like them:

MEN IN NATIVE

MEN IN NATIVE

Hello Everyone,

You all noticed have not been posting regularly on the blog these days? It’s all about the planning of Nigeria’s first ever textile fair tagged fabrics meets designers. The day is almost here (6.12.2014) and because this is the first one am organizing, it’s a bit stressful but God has been awesome and have connected theasoebijunkie to amazing people.

Did I tell you there’s going to be a raffle draw at the fair? Yes, apart from the free fabric goody bags to the first 50 shoppers, there is going to be a raffle draw to win amazing luxury fabrics given to us from our sponsors: NHN COUTURE, BOSCH&COKG and FASHIONSTARFABRICS!

So you can’t afford to miss the fair, Venue is Our Place, 7 olufunmilola okikiolu Street off Toyin street Ikeja Lagos from 10 am to 7pm . Tell your friends to tell another friend and also invite your family members and all fabric lovers. It’s a good time to also shop for new fabrics at affordable prices for the Christmas season.

Today’s post is based on a new series tagged “MEN IN NATIVE” which will focus on showcasing stylish African men in African fabrics/attires.

I have been doing a lot of post on women and their amazing styles in different fabrics and I have also done posts on male aso-ebi here and here where I focus on the aso-ebi for men at different weddings. But this post is to showcase the African men in different fabrics, colors and style to inspire other male folks that will like to step out stylishly on Fridays to work or on Sundays to church services or to the next owambe they intend to attend. 

Men also have variety of fabrics to choose from like brocade, cotton fabrics, wool, atiku material, polished lace etc.

Most African men tend to choose calm and neutral colors they do not like to play with bright colors like the ladies. Examples of colors that men tend to use to sew native wears include: white, cream, beige, grey, black, off-white, navy-blue, sky-blue etc

The men folk also accessorize with mufflers, different types of caps/hats, sunglasses, wristbands, exquisite rings, coralbeads etc.

Below are some handsome African dudes with so much Finesse looking very fresh, eye-catching and smart as they display the Nigerian/African culture in different fabrics:
