ANKARA JUNKIE, ASO-EBI INSPIRATION, WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT

ANKARA ASOEBI #FAAJI2018

Hello my beautiful readers,

Last weekend was the multicultural traditional wedding of the Son of Oyo state Governor Senator Ajimobi (Idris Ajimobi) and Daughter of Kano state Governor Ganduje (Fatima Ganduje)

Immediately I saw it in the news, I developed interest and stalked their hashtag FAAJI2018 which was indeed a display of the Hausa and Yoruba cultures ranging from the bride’s hausa costume,Asooke, Durban horses, royal event theme, henna night and so many beautiful and magnificent expose of the richness of our diversity in Nigeria.

Another aspect which is my major interest is the asoebi. Because this is a society wedding and both parents are politicians, I was expecting that the event will be filled with a sorts of Swiss laces as asoebi but to my pleasant surprise, I saw their beautiful guests slaying in colorful Ankara fabrics. OMG!!! To say I was elated will be an understatement.

Remember few weeks back HERE, I made a post on Ankara aso-ebi. And I was trying to show you how your guests can slay stylishly in Ankara fabrics at budget friendly rates.

So when I saw that # FAAJI2018 was filled with mainly Ankara designs, I was excited because this shows that you can use Ankara fabric aso-ebi for your event not just because you have a low budget but because you just want to appreciate and give you event that Naija or African Vibe.

Let’s see some of the pictures from # FAAJI2018 :

The pretty Bride and

The guests in different gorgeous Ankara fabrics :

Awesome! Awesome display of the Nigerian culture.

Also check out this picture of the bride and her friends in the Fulani traditional attire :

All in all, # FAAJI2018 was splendid and I wish Idris and Fatima Ajimobi a very peaceful marriage filled with all the good things of life.

Cheers,

Modupe

THEASO-EBI JUNKIE WEDDING, THEASOEBIJUNKIE STARS

THEASOEBIJUNKIE STARS: ADEFUNMI2016

Hello everyone,

It is my delight to bring our amazing #theasoebijunkiestarcouple to you as they rocked theasoebijunkie asooke on their big day.

Our bride- Now Mrs Adeleke made it clear that she wanted a unique and gorgeous design of asooke for the traditional wedding and not the regular hand-cut buba but something easy breezy that will be airy and not so heavy.

So we decided to make a tiny interlace hand cut buba in champagne gold with patches of orange and neon green to represent her color theme with lots of blings scattered on it.
The wrapper was a plain champagne gold asooke but we also joined the tiny inter lace handcut to the lower part which turned out so beautiful.
Because the buba and wrapper had a burst of colors, we decided to tone it down with a plain white head-tie and ipele embellished with gold stones and pearls which the bride slayed stylishly on her big day.

The groom also looked regal in his  champagne gold agbada with white embroidery design and champagne gold cap.

Theasoebijunkie brand is so proud of the final outcome of the couple’s attire and we are grateful to be part of your big day!

Now let’s see the amazing pictures from Ripples Photography:

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:
