      Nicee

    • Babious July 12, 2013 at 4:27 PM

      the models are not appealing and i dread the choice of colors.

    • Olabisi Modele July 12, 2013 at 7:18 PM

      It’s a classic ,well done ,kudos………….

    • neon July 12, 2013 at 7:46 PM

      this kain ankara wey be say na 2500, n aim the girl dey call big price on top? ok o.

    • Lafunky July 12, 2013 at 8:41 PM

      Dresses from £30? That’s not true…well according to your website. I got so excited when you wrote above that is from £30, I went straight to your website to place an order. To my disappointment, the prices on your site range from $200, $300, etc. I can easily buy an Ankara material and choose a style for my tailor to sew. The total price would be less than £50.

      • tatafo! July 13, 2013 at 2:10 AM

        The sale starts July 27, maybe the sale discounts will reflect on the website then

    • lola July 12, 2013 at 9:28 PM

      pele. are you a learner? lol. thats a marketing gimmick right there.

      • Lafunky July 13, 2013 at 2:12 PM

        I’m not a learner…when stores say..from £30..the discrepancy is not that high in price. Perhaps £50, £80, £100 but not £200.

    • style@atl July 12, 2013 at 11:06 PM

      I totally agree with you Lafunky and I mean there are so many talented tailors in all of our neighbourhoods that sew excellently well…infact, isn’t it the tailors that sew and they put their names on it!

    • Miss posh July 13, 2013 at 12:43 AM

      Love

    • oose July 13, 2013 at 2:30 AM

      shoes look really cheap for such beautiful pieces

    • AroChick July 13, 2013 at 7:53 AM

      Some of these comments are constructive others are plain spiteful. If u don’t like don’t buy! After all the yap yap you’ll go and waste money on the high street. Support Nigerian design. It’s come a long way.

      • Lafunky July 13, 2013 at 2:14 PM

        My High Street clothes (House Of Fraser, New Look, Debenhams, Forever 21, H & M, M & S) last me longer and they are more versatile.

        • Tiey Rex July 15, 2013 at 7:50 AM

          LOL! Are those high street? More like middle street. Aunty you for just say they last longer and not list them. Don’t worry you’ll do better next time.

    • Tribal west July 13, 2013 at 8:42 AM

      If you look at the fabric closely u’ll reailise that the fabric are jersey and chifon like, so it cleary cost more than your regular 2300 ankara gosh, so she shouldn’t make money off her brand, she should sell 10k becoz she bought fabric 2300, poor man mentality. Gucci and all how much do u think there materials cost , they all come from china.

      • Lafunky July 13, 2013 at 2:13 PM

        It’s not about looking at fabric. We don’t know how much she bought the fabric. It could still be a cheap fabric. I doubt Nigerians would patronise her. Maybe non-Nigerians

      • neon July 14, 2013 at 5:43 PM

        are you a joker! n one is saying she should sell for 10k, but please dont come and sell us something that 6yards of the material cost 2500 and youve used 3 yards to sew at 200pounds. abeg.

    • rukkys July 13, 2013 at 3:18 PM

      these dresses are so beautiful, the fabrics very unique. i will definitely be there. !

    • AroChick July 14, 2013 at 4:30 AM

      @ lafunky. You said ” I got so excited when you wrote above that is from £30, I went straight to your website to place an order. To my disappointment, the prices on your site range from $200, $300, etc. I can easily buy an Ankara material and choose a style for my tailor to sew. The total price would be less than £50″ and that high street items would be cheaper and more versatile. You are absolutely right. This is not high street fashion. If we wanted to buy an Indian sari it may cost us and it would not be as versatile as a purchase from house of Fraser etc. but then not all items are supposed to be versatile. The design, cut, or fabric may not be to the taste of all. However, if price and versatilty is the issue – compare like with like.

    • AroChick July 14, 2013 at 4:35 AM

      i.e. we cannot compare a sari or traditional wear even if it’s a fusion range with the high street. The two things fulfill different functions. It’s like saying that Iro and Buba cost too much I can buy it cheaper in debenhams!

    • Mma July 14, 2013 at 8:00 PM

      Lovely collection.

      I really like the fabrics and I think the prices are reasonable also…

    • Berry July 16, 2013 at 11:40 AM

      Don’t think its Ankara, she just choose Ankara design to imprint on chiffon, satin material

    • Saratu August 6, 2013 at 2:16 PM

      Na wa oo see beef! All you classless ppuppers ranting about jst gerrout if u cant afford dem…go nd buy ur cheap 2500 Ankara and sew simple!
