    I like the idea of several afri-designers, one website. But darn, some of the pieces are ‘hespensif’ o. Till money tree start blooming in my backyard i’ll stick to my in-town clothier.

    I do agree with Nneka, the price is a bit on the high side. But Ibo keep your pencil, pinching others design is not cricket, all the time spent on the design and the labour is not FOC.

    eh 15 pounds thats almost 30 USD for a doll that my daughter will love for a week and abandon after she has removed the arms and legs??? is the doll a wardrobe staple for me or for children?? abegi i can buy better and cheaper dolls at walmart, which wont cost so much, including the clothes. Haba, why must we make our products so expensive in naija? Anyway again I dont blame the designers for doing that, it’s because if you dont put a high price on something in nigeria no one will buy or even see it as something to reckon with, but when the price is sky high more people will show interest. Vanity upon vanity all is vanity!!! pshewwwww!

    abeg they need to cool down with these price ojare. and btw, Bella u already featured that “pocket skirt” in ur old blog years ago so how is it among the hottest right now?
    N e whoz, the prices r not the only thing turning me off….i have seen very similar styles b4. Infact i own a dress similar in style to the “wrap dress”. I just don’t get y they can’t make these clothes affordable so that more people can buy. The jewel by Lisa dress i understand bcos it is very detailed, but abegi jare.

    I love that clutch by Ituen Basi. The creativity is simply off the chain. I am so proud of our African designers. Keep the flag flying!!!
    Will buy one of those dolls for my niece. Its refreshing to see a black doll in traditional African attire. All these barbies and bratz in their hoochie outfits reinforce negative stereotypes in young females so this is great on many levels.

    £15 for a doll??? Even the 50 year old Barbie.. that most girls default to.. are a fraction of that price.. so why is Azeeza so expensive.. I think my daughter actually got one last Xmas.. didn’t last our holiday in Naija talk less of when we got back home.. I sure hope my sis-in-law didn’t pay that much for it!!

    IF you can’t afford the dresses then you’re obviously not at that “level” yet LMAO.

    The day will come when those of us that have copied a style will be called out and publicly humiliated for wearing a fake JBL or Tiffany Amber naija style. Those of you who are old enough remember when people where yabbed for wearing Tommy “Hilfinger” LOL.

    We as African need to start embracing our stuff as the white man embraces theirs. Yes i know to some people it might be a little expensive, fine but don’t curse it or say its too expensive instead be proud and forward it to someone who has the money that can afford it. If it had been Gucci or Chanel i don’t think i would have heard a lot complain as i’m seeing. Asos online fashion are selling African ready made skirt, dresses and its not as nice but more expensive than what MyAsho is asking. If we don’t show any love for our stuff then how do we expect others to. The English high street fashion at the moment is all about African print and they are charging as from 50 pound for something that we see as nothing, that we are complaining about as too expensive and its selling fast. So who is the fool? we are, always selling ourselves cheap.
    I have just check MyAsho collections and i have to say they are all nice and some are a little expensive. Then it all depends on you and your pocket.

    Thanks for this! I’ve bought clothing from previously and I can vouch for the quality of the items received. They are also super sweet! Going back for some more,haha!

    Oh well, you can’t please everyone!

    I for one LOVE the JBL dress…but can’t afford it but I’m not “hating” b/c I know that all that embroidery and material COSTS NAIRA jo! *However* I don’t think there’s anything wrong w/ getting a similar cut by one’s tailor! Why is that a problem? It won’t be the same material and it probably won’t have all the embroidery and “attach” so it will be “inspired by JBL” not a knock off…so no Tommy “Hilfinger” here! Hehe. I, however, will wait and maybe God will reduce the price this ONE time. Lol.

    As for myasho, some of the items are overpriced, some are priced for a “selective audience” and some are right on the money. This is Haute Couture…or High Fashion… so the price will not be “too reasonable”. People should remember that BEFORE criticizing. I for one prefer JBL to LV, or Christian Dior, Chanel, Ferragammo et al. I want African clothing FROM Africans. Those in the UK should check out Sika b/c her clothes are lovely.

    Lastly, *when possible* we MUST remember to SUPPORT our own. They will also be the one’s to support us. Ok, my novel done finish! 🙂
