Hey lovers!

Welcome to the month of March! I’m over excited because this is my birthday month but let me not get into my birthday wishlist. Instead let’s talk about something else. Nigeria is one country that has recently opened its arms to the world of fashion. The people are more fashion conscious, there are emerging designers, stylists, models and so much more. Its been really exciting to the growth of our fashion industry and It is so important for me as a Nigerian fashion blogger to promote the Nigerian and African fashion industries. So I am going to introduce you, my beautiful readers to the world of Nigerian fashion. In no particular order,  here are the top 10 Nigerian fashion brands I love. I hope you fall in love with them too. Enjoy!!

REBAHIA

I would love to tag ‘Rebahia’ as the label of my dreams and their recent spring/summer 2014 collection just sealed the deal. The label stands for simplicity but focuses more on fabric and bold color choices. The Rebahia woman is modern, sensual, simple, elegant and confident and I must say the clothes do reflect the brand image. I love me some Rebahia.

VIRGOS LOUNGE

Virgos Lounge is probably one of the most recognised fashion brands in Nigeria. They are known for their love for vintage pieces and impeccable details like sequins, beading etc. I particularly love their dresses…I think they are amazing. If you’ve got that special wedding, birthday or dinner date, trust me, you want to get that outfit from VL. Angela Simmons happens to be a big fan of VL and she always stuns in their pieces.

GREY PROJECTS

I love Grey. They stand for affordable yet timeless and fashionable clothings. Their clothes are very functional and can easily be translated from day to night. I also love Grey for their fantastic prints and use of color.

WANA SAMBO

‘The Wana Sambo woman is strong, sexy and confident.’ The clothes definitely reflect this. I love how easy Wana Sambo pieces are. They are comfortable, functional but stylish and really sexy. I recently purchased a few items from the WS showroom in Lekki and I can’t wait to share my experience with you all.

Hey Dolls!

So, Andrea Iyamah is a designer i recently came across and her swimsuit line is banging! I love love her pieces! Oh…she’s Nigerian, just like me…so proud! But yeah…as I was saying, her latest collection titled ‘Nkwor’ was full of aztech prints, cut out swim wear, pastel colors and much more.I would feel really sexy wearing any of these pieces at a pool party or to the beach. Infact, even if i don’t wanna go to any of those places, I would just so i could show off my AI swimwear.
