Hi dearies,
I am in love with my Eve & Tribe set. Anyways, it feels good to have recovered fully, there is nothing like good health! My natural hair is in a protective style (single plaits under my wig). So down to today’s post, I love my Nigerian(African) traditional attires but a lot of times I have noticed that people translate Nigerian (African) fashion as a whole to just merely ankara prints/designs. Honestly, in today’s modern world African fashion has grown way beyond that and people need to understand that there is a distinction between our traditional wear/attire and designs by Africans Designers that may not necessarily be traditional. Don’t forget you have African women like me who happen to work in the professional scene (sometimes Western styles & suits not everytime trad).

I am so proud when I see a lot of what our Nigerian (African) Designers produce. One day I decided to wear a top and skirt set by Eve & Tribe. As someone who supports Innovation & Entrepreneurship I encourage you to buy African and support the movement. If we support African Designers (and businesses as a whole) it is for the overall good of everyone in my opinion (more jobs created, better economy, attracting Foreign Direct Investment etc). At first glance, the outfit looks basic but my priority was choosing an outfit that was perfect for my body type, classy and modest as oppose to what is trending (I guess that is the difference between a fashionista and someone with their own personal style). It is all about putting you and your taste first. Decided to restore my mum’s Gino Aldrovandi shoe and bag set (it is older than me! My grandfather kept them in his store room and I grabbed them when I visited Lagos ladt year). You know I had to add that African vibe with the beaded necklace! Here are some pictures of my Eve & Tribe set. What do you think and would you have styled it differently?

Cool! Looks ethnic but a lot softer or like jersey so it clings and accentuates the body. To totally make a statement, I wonder what effect it would have with original Nigerian gele in all it’s splendor (wide)?! The blue accessories made it more vivid. Kudos!

Aunty mi gwo … my very own fashion correspondent ☺ I should try it with white gele perhaps to see the effect like you said or even my afro combed out! Great feedback, thank you ❤

I have so much to say here where do I start: first of all kudos to you on all your blog developments: your web layout design, upcoming videos etc, second ofall this post is talking aobut a topic thats very close to my heart: African designers and fashion: I dont know if you ever saw it but I did a Fashion Special vid with Silverbird TV where I interviewed and showcased the S/S16 collections of London based African designers…I agree with you, the days of thinking African fabrics begins and ends with Ankara is long gone…
Love this piece you are wearing, the print is faaab and you played off its tones with your accessories very well indeed! ( :
