Nigerian Style Short Gowns Are Perfect As Wedding Guest Outfits
Gown aso-ebis (wedding guest wears) are some of the finest, you’d agree. Or what about wearing an ankara or lace short gown to work on a Friday? I like that you can look both elegant and simple in a traditional style short gown. And for brides-to-be who are planning a honeymoon, be sure to include one or two into your honeymoon suitcase.
Nigerian traditional wears and dresses are really looking better and better every day, and competing well in the International Fashion scene. The finishings are becoming better and better – even with outfits made by local tailors.
A few years ago, I was at an International Fashion show and was amazed at how the Onyibos and Nigerians abroad were buying our made-in-Nigeria gowns, even though those ones were really costly.
