      they went to the mainstream and got ALL WHITE MODELS! this is why africa carries last! if it was Jason Woo or Vera Wang there would be atleast ONE asian model! smh

      • skimpy May 1, 2012 at 10:39 PM

        i was about to say the exact same thing! when virgos lounge first launched their line we saw the black model they were using. now all of a sudden they are in top shop and its only white models! i guess it just shows who they want to sell to. but the clothes are lovely and i think some will look better on a black model than these pale girls

    • faith May 1, 2012 at 6:52 AM

      Love them!

    • Tiwababy May 1, 2012 at 7:46 AM

      Haba so on point with that comment…. How do we as Africans take ourselves mainstream. If we reject to push ourselves there. I am now wondering is Virgos Lounge really a Nigerian British brand?? On to the next one ojare

    • Ada May 1, 2012 at 9:28 AM

      Nigerians are sooo quick to make silly comments. One step forward two steps back! White black pink whatever the color maybe they just do fashion and see past the racial ish… Hard to please!

    • Ready May 1, 2012 at 11:49 AM

      I think most of the prints/colors would look better on olive/darker skin tones, but I’m sure they’re catering to their big spenders. Can’t knock the hustle. Mostly pretty stuff.

    • sassycassie May 1, 2012 at 2:11 PM

      They just had to use white models! They’re a lotof black models looking for gigs.open your eyes africans. That’s why we get no respect from the western world.

    • sassycassie May 1, 2012 at 2:12 PM

      @ ada: you’re quite naive. since when did the fashion world start looking past race?

    • Bolanle May 1, 2012 at 2:13 PM

      i checked their website and found that the items are actually quite affordable, cheaper than what i thought it would be. The sequined oversized clutch bag is only £45!!!!! I think i might purchase it, the sequined skirt is lovely too!

    • tatafo! May 1, 2012 at 2:53 PM

      Ope oh! they’ve finally made their lengths longer. I’ve always been a fan of their work but the skirt/dress lengths were always too short for me.

      Either way, well done girls! Not everyone has to be afro-centric jare.

    • christy May 1, 2012 at 6:23 PM

      Luv d concept!

    • Priscy May 2, 2012 at 9:22 AM

      nice one

    • Tiwababy May 2, 2012 at 9:27 AM

      So in essence you are now saying the big spenders are the whites??? You must have lost your damn mind @ Ready… Go find out how Africans especially Nigerians shop abroad? We only use Cash, no credits cards oh… @Ada.. Whites started Racial discrimination. Try and go back to your history books… Shame you still consider them more entitled… And we never said they shouldn’t have been in the campaign. We just wanted a dark skinned girl in the campaign.One is enough.. I know Virgos Lounge is reading, next cookbook ladies, don’t forget us…cheers

      • Ada May 3, 2012 at 4:35 PM

        sigh sigh….cant get through to you.

    • Tiwababy May 2, 2012 at 9:27 AM

      Virgos Lounge….amazing as usual! Drool worthy…

    • lets go May 3, 2012 at 12:03 PM

      Africans cant we just get along, everything isn’t about race for heavens sake. just appreciate peoples success and move on o jare. When u design your own clothes please use african/black girls or whatever(by the way it doesn’t matter) and also its not like their site doesn’t have black model ladies on their site(not dat it matters). Please support one another and let us move forward…finito.

    • lets go May 3, 2012 at 12:05 PM
