SEGO GELE

Happy Easter Holidays¬† people!¬† It’s the celebration of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and the finished work on Calvary (Hallelujah)!

From time immemorial the African woman especially Nigerian women are known to always compliment their outfits with turban, scarves and headtie.
The headtie to us is what the hat means to the European women especially when you are going to church, social functions and for all kinds of festivities.

There’s this special touch the headtie¬† popularly known as gele gives to the native outfit be it iro and buba or skirt and blouse and even the simple boubou beyond covering of hair. Gele makes you stand out, it’s traditional and oozes elegance.

So today,  am focusing on the sego gele which is a ( not so ) new kind of gele that has found its way into the heart of most ladies.
It is a bit softer than the old type of gele (favourite part for younger ladies) and it comes in 2piece  per pack , so you can share one pack with a friend/ sister or use the second half as ipele.

They also come in different  patterns and colors to match any kind of fabric. 

Let’s see some beautiful samples of Sego gele that you can rock to your next event or even to church on a bad hair day *winks* :

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:

LOOM ASOOKE

Hello Gorgeous People,
Today’s post is about the ancient and very famous Asooke fabric.
The Asooke fabric is known all over the world and has been infused into contemporary fashion by various fashion designers.
It’s is locally woven here in Nigeria and some other parts of Africa in fact we now have Asooke fabrics from China! You know the Chinese people can produce or replicate anything in the world but when it comes to the Asooke fabric, the best is from our local African weavers.

The regular Asooke that we know normally come in stripes. A set of Asooke has 8 stripes in the pack which can be used to make gele, ipele (for a woman) and one or two caps (for a man).
Three stripes of the set is stitched together to make one gele (Head gear), four stripes is stitched together to make one ipele (for the shoulder) and the remaining one will make a cap or two depending on the length of the Asooke.
The regular length of  Asooke is 90 inches and each stripe width is about  4inches.

But now the fashion world is improving and evolving all over the world and the Asooke fabric is not left out hence my post today on the LOOM ASOOKE.

Its a new dimension of weaving Asooke fabric which a lot of¬† people do not know about. The Loom Asooke is woven straight into the gele (headgear) size which means you don’t need to stitch 3stripes together like I explained earlier. Its just like ready to wear!
And also the ipele is made straight into the normal size, no stitching/joining involved.

The loom Asooke is the rave of the moment for those who know and it can be made as plain, multicoloured, metallic ,soge or even onjawu.
You can also ‘spice ‘ it up by applying blings on it or tack some beads or sequence on it in various design as a bride or party guests.

Let’s look at some samples of the loom Asooke and don’t forget to call/WhatsApp 07033040834 or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com to place orders for your Loom Asooke for personal use and party Asoebi quantity in whatever color or combination.

THEASOEBIJUNKIE STARS

Hello everyone,
Happy Democracy day! Its a new dawn for us in Nigeria and we hope to experience the change we desire by God’s grace.

Remember our April asoebi diva – Abiodun Apoola .
Yes, she called me that she  needed a champagne gold lace for herself and her sister for a wedding.
The asoebi for the wedding was multicolored sego gele with any champagne gold fabric.
So I sent her some pictures of beautiful champagne gold fabrics to choose from #theasoebijunkietotherescue.

She finally picked this exquisite champagne gold with silver guipure lace and we delivered next day (Yes, we try to be prompt).

Here are pictures of Mrs Biodun Apoola and her Sister serving all sorts of hotness and slaying stylishly in our fabric:
