LETS CLOTHE A KID THIS CHRISTMAS 2016

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to the month of November! Praise God we made it!

Like I mentioned in my post yesterday HERE, I can smell Christmas already and if you go to major markets and stores you will find Christmas trees and ornaments on display for sale signifying that the festive season is so near…….

And this brings us to my post of today on our charity project which we started last year tagged LETS CLOTHE A KID THIS CHRISTMAS which is targeted at putting a smile on less privileged children by giving them NEW clothes for Christmas. I shared how we came about this vision in this POST last year when we launched the project and the response was amazing. We got fabrics from individuals, fabric vendors within and outside Lagos and  a lot of talented designers also made fab clothes which we distributed at motherless babies homes to the glory of God.

2016 Christmas is near and we will like to clothe another set of 100 less privileged kids within Lagos and if possible across the country. To make this dream a reality, we need all the help we can get from individuals and corporate bodies within and outside Nigeria .

We will appreciate donations of-

*BRAND NEW CLOTHING FOR KIDS

*ALL KINDS OF FABRICS

*SERVICE OF FASHION DESIGNERS/TAILORS

Theasoebijunkie as a brand  already have reserved fabrics for this purpose, so volunteer designers can contact us on 07033040834 and we will send fabrics to you immediately.

For more information on how to donate or any other inquiry, kindly call/whats app 07033040834 or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com and we will be glad to reply you.

You can also ask questions as well as share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

God bless you.

cheers,

THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS

FLORAL TULLE LACE

Hello my fabric lovers,

Its the end of the month of October and we are moving into a new month-November and I am definitely excited about this as I smell Christmas already !

Talking about Christmas, there are 3 Projects that we at Theasoebijunkie normally get involved in around this time every year which are – The Textile Fair Lagos, Lets clothe a kid and our annual fabric hampers sale but this Christmas we will be having just the Lets clothe a kid project and also sell our fabric hampers while the Textile Fair Lagos will not be holding due to logistics reasons and some other projects which we have been working on to make our brand serve you better that we will be unfolding to you all in a couple of weeks.

So beautiful people, as we did last year we will be collecting NEW FABRICS  to make BRAND NEW CHRISTMAS CLOTHES for less privileged kids from next month and we also need volunteer fashion designers/tailors that can make beautiful fabrics for free for these kids. More information on that will be up on the blog tomorrow in another post.

Back to our post for today, I will like to show us a new and not so new baby in the world of African laces that is so beautiful and versatile for my special ladies ……

The Floral tulle lace is a soft and high quality  lace made from tulle fabrics with floral embroidery on it.This fabric is a must in every woman’s closet as it gives a girly and elegant look whenever its worn irrespective kind of style or design made from it.

Also for women who want wear same fabric with their princesses/girls, this is the perfect fabric for your Mommy and Me picture as it is always super cool on little girls.

The floral tulle lace could be in a single color or multicolored (I love the multicolored designs), some have petals on the embroidery while some other ones are stoned but which ever you choose will make a stunning outfit if handled by a good tailor. I personally loved the soft feel it has on the skin and the way it glues on the skin is absolutely gorgeous.

Enough of my preaching (lol), lets see the beautiful fabrics in different designs and color mix:

PICKING ASO-EBI

Thank God it’s Monday (I wish I actually meant that.lol)
Weekends and ‘owambes’ are all over until the next five days when another Aso-ebi would be the order of the day and we would all be gorgeously dressed for one ‘parry’ or the other dancing away all the stress of the week! That’s why today’s post is to the celebrant of the next occasion or anyone planning to celebrate an event soon.
HOW TO PICK ASO-EBI FABRIC/PACKAGE?
Picking aso-ebi for your event or party mostly depends on the personal prefence of the celebrant.
The style, taste, age, and sometimes societal class of the celebrant determine the kind of fabric chosen.
Most elderly people prefer lace material(cotton or organza) while young ones or youths like to experiment with fabrics like Ankara, kente, adire, sample lace, velvet and soft lace generally and most male guest prefer fabrics like brocade, ‘atiku’, polished lace etc.
Any which way, comfort and affordability should be key factors to consider when you want to pick a fabric which will be a uniform wear at your special event.
Some other factors to consider before choosing Aso-ebi are:
• The age bracket of your guests
• The societal/financial class of guests
• The theme of your party
• The color code of your party
• The kind of event you are celebrating

Important points to note also include:
The price of the fabric:
This is of great importance, make sure your Aso-ebi package is affordable for all guests or you can choose different fabrics at different prices for different people.
Durability:
Make sure the fabric is of good quality and genuine.
No one likes to purchase a material/fabric that would tear or fade off after the first wash. Remember the fabric would always represent you in the mind of your guest even after the event.
Uniqueness:Make sure your fabric is not common, try as much as possible to select a unique fabric not some cloth you would find all over the street the next day.
Tip: it would increase your sales (people love unique and beautiful things naturally)
Pattern/design:Make sure your fabric design is not too bogus or loud. Such designs do not get high level of patronage anymore.
Distribution:Make sure you have a good distribution channel in place for your Aso-ebi so that everyone interested gets their fabric.
Most Aso-ebi vendors nowadays, do home delivery where your fabric/package is being delivered to you at a convenient address with the option of paying cash on delivery.
If you are not engaging the service of any vendor, a trusted friend or relative could also help in the distribution.
Timing:
Timing is very important (as they say; time is money)
Make sure your Aso-ebi gets to your invitees on time!
Personally, I would say a month to D-day or you could also distribute them immediately after your invitation card is out. So that you guests can get them ready before that day in case the tailor needs to make some adjustment *winks*
