THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS

GO GUIPURE! GO FIGURE!

Hello my lovelies,

Earlier in the year, I made a trend alert post about the Guipure lace fabric here explaining how ‘hot’ this fabric is at the moment.

The Guipure lace also known as cord lace is still very vibrant on the fashion scene in Nigeria, used by brides as buba or top with aso-oke wrapper for traditional weddings or a complete set of iro and buba for Introduction ceremony.

Wedding guests are also not left out as they use it as aso-ebi, creating beautiful and unique styles ranging from iro and buba to tops as well as dresses. Guipure lace can also be used to make formal outfits/work wears or chic party/ dinner wears.

Recently, I have seen lots of stylish women mix and match the Guipure lace mixed with other fabrics like sequined lace, ankara, brocade even with silk fabric tastefully designed to stand out of the crowd graciously.

The Guipure lace is still the rave of the moment and it’s going to stay long on the Nigerian fashion scene, so if you want to keep up with the trend, go get yourself some yards of Guipure lace and replicate some of these amazing styles for that elegant appearance at your next owambe:

TREND ALERT

TREND ALERT: MULTI-COLORED ASOOKE

Hello all,

The weekend is almost here and we are getting ready for the next owambe. But before then I will like to alert us on a new trend in the ‘aso-ebi industry’.

This new trend for Brides and Wedding guests is the MULTI-COLORED ASO -OKE!

The fabric is the same aso-oke fabric in different colors (2 colors, 3 colors or even 4 colors) merged together to create a perfect blend.

This new rave is absolutely beautiful and trendy, the color variation of the fabric exudes class, elegance and sophistication.

You can also use this multi-colored aso-oke for baby dedication/christening or even as your Sunday’s best attire to worship the King Of kings.

 Below are beautiful multi colored aso-oke used as gele (headgear) and ipele for your peusal:

TREND ALERT

TREND ALERT: SANYAN ASO-OKE

The aso-oke fabric is one fabric I really love, even though I do not have much of it because people rarely use it as aso-ebi. On the other hand it’s mostly worn by the celebrants especially for Yoruba traditional weddings by the bride and groom.

But now there is a new (well, not so new) aso-oke fabric trending now, it’s called the Sanyan aso-oke!

Sample of Sanyan aso-oke fabric

Sanyan is commonly used in Ondo state of Nigeria for cultural/traditional events, woven from the beige silk obtained locally from the cocoons of the Anaphe moth, forming a pale brown/beige cloth.

Nowadays, you can get Sanyan in not just brown but more fabulous colors like pink, coral, blue, teal and sometimes in a mixture of 2-3 colors.

This ancient fabric is a ‘stunner’ at the moment and can be used not just by the celebrants but also by the guests as aso-ebi for weddings, birthdays, child christening and all sorts of parties.
It’s absolutely beautiful, unique, gorgeous and a breath of fresh air!

Here are some pictures of gorgeous people in Sanyan:
