It’s as if the lyrics “never to be caught unfresh” was written for Nigerian women. When you think of fashion, you think Nigeria. Nigerian women have always been over the top.
Think back to some historically fashionable women like Stella Obasanjo – she wore vibrant Ankara fabrics with puffy sleeves, glistening red lipstick and headgear that looked like a satellite dish.
Elaborate fashion has always been the style of Nigerian women who wear heavily embroidered guinea brocade with different motifs, appliques and beadings. A visit to a wedding party or Sunday service will reveal this to you.
