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 ūüėÉ

Cheers,

Modupe

THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS

Silk and Chiffon

Happy Sunday Y’all,

So our giveaway sponsor Green Castle Dubai sent me some fabrics for a photo shoot and we made some beautiful iro and buba styles as well as dresses from the beautiful chiffon and silk mix/match fabrics.

When deciding styles to make from this fabrics, my being covered yet chic and classy mantra came to play because nudity is gradually taken over the fashion scene nowadays.
And as Africans, we love to look elegant and sophisticated but we also try to cover the appropriate parts of our body as females. Personally, I do not believe I have to expose parts of my body to feel/look sexy and as a fashion cum fabric blogger, I try to celebrate women who do not show their private parts but look absolutely stunning in well tailored African outfits.
I see my body as my treasure so will not expose it unnecessarily just like I will not expose my box of gold jewelry because I place so much value on it.

So in this photoshoot, I made some iro and buba  outfits with different kinds of sleeves with plain sego gele as my headtie .
My Tailor also made some maxi dresses from the fabrics to show us that chiffon and silk is not just for iro and buba but you can make dresses, shift dresses, maxi- dresses, tunic tops etc from them.
Let’s see some of the pictures:

TREND ALERT

TREND ALERT: SILK AND CHIFFON COMBO

Happy new month everyone,

This is a not so new trend because lots of ladies have rocked the silk or chiffon knot tie iro and buba since Tiffany Amber launched it.

But here am going to focus on the combination of both fabrics in making fabulous traditional/ native outfits.

One unique thing about this particular combination is that both the silk and chiffon often carry same prints/designs even though they are two different fabrics.

1-756455743122834822_203712304

I love the use of these two fabrics in making stylish iro and buba styles also known as oleku; where chiffon fabric is used as buba and the silk as the wrapper /iro.

Nowadays the buba has shifted from the regular round neck, long sleeved and free size top to more sophisticated forms e.g. the off shoulder buba, the cape buba, the fitted short sleeve buba, the  cowl neck buba etc.

The wrapper too can be tied in the normal conventional way or knot tied (also known as the tulip style wrapper).

Below are pictures of fabulous people in the silk/chiffon combo:
