NORTHERN NIGERIAN BRIDES

Sometimes a go I made a post HERE about the Hausa or Northern Nigerian Amariya I shared my thoughts about the beautiful Hausa/Fulani rich culture displayed at their weddings which is quite unique from other traditional weddings in Nigeria.

Over the years, the Amariya or Northern Nigerian brides have evolved in their fashion/style for their big day and I felt I should make another post on this.

In as much as we all know that Hausa especially the Fulani ladies are conservative but we can’t ignore how stunning they look naturally. Have you met some Shuwa Arab ladies?? OMG! They are super gorgeous.

Their smooth and shiny skin either dark or light, their long and soft sometimes curly hair , their love for perfumes and incense ( they love to smell nice)😉 are some of the attributes of the Northern Nigerian ladies.

They spend a lot of money on their hair/skin especially on natural skin care products from Arab countries and some parts of Nigeria ( Maiduguri in particular) where they have local spas that you can treat your skin with natural herbs at low costs.

When getting married, the northern Nigerian wedding is more of a festival especially for the bride.

The display of culture from the outfits to the makeup, henna, exquisite gold jewelry, unique veils is amazingly beautiful.
Since this is our focus on today’s post, grab your popcorn and check out these beautiful pictures of stunning Northern Nigerian brides and let me know what you think in the comments section:

THE TEXTILE FAIR

THE TEXTILE FAIR LAGOS 2018

Hello my lovelies,

The Textile Fair Lagos is back!!!! *Inserts a dance emoji* .

As you all know, THEASOEBIJUNKIE is all about African Fabrics and fashion. And in 2014, we started a fair tagged The Textile Fair Lagos where we gather vendors of high quality Fabrics, creatively designed ready to wear pieces for adults and kids plus unique fashion accessories but stopped along the line.

And because our past vendors keep disturbing that we should bring the fair back, we had to listen and the next edition will be on the 1st of December 2018 at Lagos Airport Hotel Ikeja Lagos.

So if you love great bargains and you have been waiting for our next sales, The Textile Fair Lagos is the place to be this weekend because not only will THEASOEBIJUNKIE brand be there with Exquisite Fabrics as usual but there will be other vendors selling all things Fashion at discounted prices.

It’s going to be an amazing family Christmas shopping event as there will be something for everyone.

Did I mention that there will be free master classes on gele tying, party makeup, fashion styling and I will be teaching on the business of fabrics . So if you want to start a fabric business in 2019 and you need some tips/advice or you have questions on the business of fabrics? You should make it a date.

Another good news is that we have goody bags for the first 50 shoppers and when you purchase goods worth 10k and above from vendors, you get a raffle ticket to win beautiful Fabrics.

So you see we have a lot lined up at The Textile Fair Lagos 2018 with good music and food from our food vendors.

And above all admission to this event is FREE!!

Please make it a date with your family and tell a friend to tell another friend.

In my next post, I will be showcasing brands to look out for at The Textile Fair Lagos but for more updates kindly follow @thetextilefairlagos on Instagram.

Can’t wait to see y’all on Saturday and please if you are a blog reader, kindly stop by our stand and say Hi to me 😃

Cheers,

MAGNIFICIENT NORTHERN AMARIYAS

I lived in the North, Kano precisely for about seven years but unfortunately did not attend a single Hausa wedding throughout my stay *covers face*.   May be because most of their weddings are somewhat intimate and only the relatives (note that they have a large and closely knitted family system which I admire a lot) and close friends get to attend most of their weddings.

The Northern traditional wedding is similar to the Arab’s wedding but with our African culture infused in the ceremony, you wonder how I got to know this since I didn’t attend any? Well I get fascinated by pictures of Hausa weddings in featured in magazines and also online.

So am dedicating my post today to the northern Amariyas (Amariya means new bride), the bride is always the cynosure of all eyes at every wedding and the Northern weddings are not an exception, in fact their brides are super magnificent!

From the wedding dress which is always slaying and stunning to the display of gold accessories, diamonds, and nowadays beaded jewelry.

Another important part of the Northern bride appearance is the henna tattoo. Henna tattoos are non-permanent dying or staining on the top layer of skin using a henna paste product. This used to beautify the hands and feet of the bride to make her appear absolutely gorgeous on her big day.

645560495100917943_204705253 751457125678708848_204705253

Most of the times, the Amariyas are always well covered on their wedding day, their head is properly wrapped with a turban or sometimes the gele head-tie and then a veil is placed over the gele/turban. They look absolutely stunning!

Apart from the henna tattoo on their hands and feet, their faces are also well made up with subtle make up, nothing loud but absolutely flawless even though they are blessed with good skin naturally especially the Fulanis.

In my usual manner am going to display lots of pictures of beautiful Amariyas in drop dead gorgeous bridal outfist made from lace fabrics, ruffles, plain tulle fabrics, satin and silk in various colors  for you to attest to the magnificence of the Northern bride.

Amariya Kenan!

Once again, am proud to be a Nigerian.
We have lots of beautiful cultures and traditions and our weddings irrespective of the tribe are always phenomenal.
Watch out for more traditional wedding pictures of other tribes in Nigeria and across Africa in future posts.
