2019 WEDDING COLOR: EMERALD GREEN

Every year in African fashion, a particular color tend to dominate the scene. Even though Pantone releases the color of the year, when it comes to fashion in Nigeria colors of the year tend to take a different turn because we are a whole VIBE as a people and just one color will not be enough for us because we love to explore and “play” with colors a lot.

So some colors (not just one) rule our African fashion scene every year. As a fabric vendor, I deal with lots of customers making orders for retail/individual and asoebi/bulk orders . And I can categorically tell you that this year 2019, Emerald green have been of high demand by party guests, asoebi orders, bridal outfits as well as for individual use.

The color emerald green is quite dark but this color still pops on #brownskin girls and also on #myfairladies.

It’s perfect for both male and female as it exudes class, strength and power.

It’s so gorgeous that you don’t have to combine it with any other color to slay in it (emerald monotone combination is gorgeous) but if you will like to add some colors, you can combine it with red, gold, white, yellow, silver, blue and black.

Below are some gorgeous ladies slaying effortlessly in Emerald green:

Still in the preparation mode for the fair but i just want to share a color that really caught my attention for the 2014 brides.

Yes, 2014 is almost over but this color is so beautiful, elegant and alluring that I just have to share: GOLD

Before now I have written about different color combinations in the 2014 wedding colors series here,here,here and here.

For those who do not know, the 2014 wedding colors is a series that is dedicated to the 2014 brides-to be, who are still confused as to what color to wear on their traditional wedding day to help them in making a stylish decision.

So today am focusing on the ‘all gold combination’, it’s absolutely breathtaking!

Gold signifies extravagance, wealth, riches, luxury, excess, generous, compassion, love, power, justice and strength.

And this color is beautiful on all skin tones especially when it’s used in its totality without mixing it with any other colors as shown on the brides in the pictures below:

THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS

SHINE BRIGHT LIKE DIAMONDS

Hello everyone,

Welcome to September, it’s a very special month for me because it’s my birth month and I also get to celebrate a special event in my life as well.

So in my celebration mood, am going to make more of fun- like posts this month because am happy. lol

Today, am going to focus on an amazing fabric for celebrants and wedding guests: THE SEQUINED LACE FABRIC.

This fabric is a type of lace fabric that is adorned with sequence all over or sometimes at the edges. Ranging from guipure to tulle, voile, etc, the sequined lace gives you that dazzling effect that makes you stand out in all occasions especially at night/ dinner parties.

This fabric can be used to make second outfit for brides, birthday dress,dinner gowns, prom dresses and even iro and buba.

When you want to purchase sequined fabrics be very careful and try as much as possible to buy quality over quantity because when you buy the cheap fabrics, the sequence tends to pull off the lace as you wash them and can also get scrawled.

Also note that the sequined fabrics are better to be washed inside out with your washing machine and ironing should be done inside out as well.

DO NOT PLACE HOT IRON ON A SEQUINED FABRIC, unless you want to melt all the sequence away.

In my usual manner, i present to you these stylish women in different attires made from the sequined lace fabric:

O sparkles! (In Jenifa’s voice)

If you have an event coming up soon either as a guest or celebrant and you want to make a statement with your style, then the sequined lace fabric is the way to go.

So go ahead, dazzle them as you shine bright like diamonds.

Cheers,

Modupe

 

TREND ALERT

IRO AND BUBA RE-DEFINED

Hello lovelies,

Today’s post is based on a renowned style that is mostly worn in the western part of Nigeria by females especially when you are of marriageable age or planning to get married and also a staple wear  in your wardrobe as a married woman.

In Yoruba land, having a box full of various fabrics used to sew the iro and buba style is a must on the list of things required from the groom by the bride’s family at the traditional marriage.

In fact, in the olden days the box is opened during the traditional wedding ceremony and checked properly to ensure that the groom bought enough clothes for his bride.

Iro and buba is a style that gives you that “madam look” and makes you command respect among men and women in your community.

The iro is just a wrapper that you wrap round your waist; most people use 2yards of the fabric or 21/2 yards if your hips don’t lie. While the buba is the top which is normally round neck with free sleeves and never fitted by the side it could be referred to as a free size top.

But recently, as the fashion industry in Nigeria is improving and different styles are evolving day by day, the Buba top is also not left out and has also been re-invented  to give today’s women a more sophisticated look in the traditional way.

The buba has moved from being a simple free size round neck top to a more stylish top to make Nigerian women look super sexy!  Sewn to fit by the sides with various neck designs like the high neck buba, cowl neck buba, cape buba, lace-edge neck buba, Mono-chrome neck buba, off -shoulder buba etc.

The list of fabrics you can use to sew iro and buba is endless; from all sorts of lace fabric, to chiffon, Ankara, silk, georgette, brocade, cotton fabric, adire etc.

Here are pictures of women in iro and buba style with different designs of the buba top looking super stunning:

1-717548755792951374_1319996021

 

So you see, the  iro and buba style is no longer for just bride to be or married woman but for every stylish African woman and fashionistas. Even the kids are not left out because most cuties wear iro and buba on their first birthday anniversary to relate with their African roots.

Another advantage of the iro and buba style is that it can be easily sown by most tailors/ designers within a short duration . So if you need a quick fix  just get to your tailor and ask him/ her to make iro and buba for you.

 

Cheers,

Modupe
