CORALS OF THE NIGER DELTA

Hello everyone, 

In 2015 and 2014, we made posts on the beauty of corals worn by the Niger-delta part of Nigeria brides for their traditional wedding HERE and HERE

Like I mentioned in previous posts, the brides from the Niger-delta are adorned with beautiful coral beads most times from Head to Toe which makes them the cynosure of all eyes on their big day.  This culture is quite fascinating, purely African and super gorgeous. 

The coral beads gives the bride a royal appearance and The Niger- delta bride whether from Edo, Delta or Rivers state outfit can never be complete without the beads costume.

There are always of different sizes and shapes ranging from small sized bead to medium to large to extra-large! Yeah, extra-large because some of them look very huge on the neck of the bride but am not sure of the weight if it’s as heavy as it looks (if you are from Niger-Delta kindly explain further in the comments section. Thanks).

Customarily, coral red color is the standard color for the beads even though some use other colors like white, peach e.t.c. it’s only the coral colored beads that actually give the native effect that every bride will want to portray on her traditional wedding day.

The beads can be worn as a top on the wrapper tied on the chest; it basically covers from the shoulder down to the waist in some parts while some other parts use the beads to make a cap and the bride gets to wear this very regal cap and also adorn her neck with the huge size coral bead neck piece! EXQUISITE!

Some also use it to adorn the native hairstyles that are exclusively made for brides on their Big Day to give the Emotan (Benin Queen) look with different sizes of coral beads carefully arranged on their neck as they present them to their groom.

Once again, check out these gorgeous brides adorned with different designs of corals beads on their big day to inspire you especially if you are from the Niger-delta and you’re trying to make a decision on your traditional wedding outfit :

TURBANS/HEADWRAPS

Hey lovelies, 

Last year turbans made a terrific come back into the Nigerian fashion scene and it became a ‘rave’. I remember some 20yrs back when my mum use to rock the turban fabric as headtie on Ankara dresses. Then she had the stripped and multicolored long velvet turbans that was like a scarf and you have to wrap it around your head for that elegant look. Now the new turban/ headers are easy to wear  because it’s sewn into a cap shape and all you need to  do is wrap the ‘tail’ part round and you are good to slay and pepper dem! 

Also these headwraps have been twisted a bit to fit into our current fashion ‘taste’ and loads of party guests who can’t handle the stress of tying gele now opt for the turbans. They now come in different gorgeous designs and colors made from all sorts of beautiful fabrics and not just velvet fabrics. And are super comfortable (which is a very important factor in fashion).

The turban is now an essential part of your native wear wardrobe and can be worn on all kinds of outfits to create an elegant look especially on a bad hair day.  Every woman needs a turban! 

Let’s see some amazing samples that caught my eyes on Instagram :

Peach asooke turban embellished with pearls

Sequined velvet pink turban

Gold silk turban

Silver plain velvet turban

Army green velvet turban

Classic white turban embellished with pearls and stones

Red beaded tulle lined with velvet turban

Champagne gold silk turban

Fuschia pink plain velvet turban

White beaded tulle lined with velvet turban

What’s your opinion about turbans and headdress? Do you have a favorite from the pictures? I will like to know in the comments section. 

Have a great day ahead.
