    These designs are fab! Luv the way the chick in the yellow combined the yellow ruffled shirt with the ankara skirt! Noticed the high waist band trend.

    Naija has come far o.. as backward as the crime rate and standard of living may make it seem. Das just flipping kool. A lot of couture fashion shows are Art pieces not necessarily wear to a party type thing.. futuristic? That I’m not so sure of. More ancient interpretation, trying to go back to the old ways..! I like it.!

    a few of the pictures were very artsy/couture-like but not really wearable… the shapes, the cut.. amazing on some of the clothes actually… I never wear any sort of traditional material…but these are so cute that i actually could/ might.. are they affordable?
    lmao the judge was trying to be fashion forward with his leopard print scarf but he was just off! lol.. but he gets an A for effort sha! whao.. i guess those high waisted skirts are realy on fire in naija right now.. the girl in the yellow is really rocking em! the lady with her blonde hair and pale face scares me!!! lmao

    WOW!…Some of the designs are fab (The first photo, and the high waisted ankara skirt)…while others are borderline…over the top!. But still, i give them props for their creativity, albeit much! Nice pics, Bella!

    Combination. The off the shoulder figure hugging long ankara dress with a splash of solid yellow is beautiful.

    Other designs I think can be deconstructed. Since it is NFS I guess the creativity leaves room for couture work combined with ready to wear.

    Keep it coming baby!

    I believe this is more of the ready to wear variety, right? If this is the case , the its very impressive.
    I would have loved to see something more edge though, like ‘couture-ish’. Where is the winners pix?
    Look at me talking like I know a thing about fashion hehe.

    The lady (in black and white) sitting with Erelu Abiola is an Aunt of sorts, a very close family friend from my younger days. Aunty Susan.

    why the parrot/pigoen/dove or what bird species it is? is that suppose to add couturism to the line? I’m not really feeling it. the designs are not anything out of the ordinary. He/ she tried
