    Can Nigerian men stop wearing shirts and jackets with HUGE meaningless badges/coats of arms on them? It has now become a competition these days with Naija menswear designers- Who is the best at disfiguring decent clothing with useless massive badges?

    Mai Atafo (Un)Inspired, Ouch and other follow-follow designers please take note.

    Abuja scene is pretty terrible when it comes to Western fashion… They should stick to Hausa clothes. They do that really well.

      The “just like the pple in Lagos” part sounds one kind. Makes me want to say, “Eeyah…”

      abuja people are simply different, not better than or worse than lagosians. end of discussion

    SMH….am getting bored with everyone becoming a fashion designer in Nigeria ….i love fashion, but just feels like there is more to life, the fact every entrepreneur stems from this sector is getting rather mundane and just reveals the vanity without substance of our nation….

    with all the brains that come out of Nigeria …just sick and tired of the” I want to be famous attitude” and fashion seems to be the fastest ladder to get fame in Nigeria.

    Even if fashion industry was the biggest boom for Nigeria, I would like to see the Chinese / Asian Clothing and Textile module approach that would inevitably impact on our economy.

    It would be nice to see more fabric makers , CMT managers / experts ,trend forecasters ,fashion journalist, Fashion show directors , Young designers forum (like institutions for aspiring designers esp from a disadvantaged background.

    To actually build a sustainable fashion industry that employs millions and have proper factories where international buyers can manufacture in Nigeria. Take a look at Lesotho, Old Navy jeans are manufactured there, factory employs thousands of people and the owner of the factory is relatively unknown.

    The Deola Sagoes are becoming rare (fields experts), and I worry about the longevity of the industry.

    A Clear distinction should be made otherwise the word Fashion Designer will lose its profundity, I mean you can’t be called a doctor ,just because you woke up one morning and gave yourself Panadol.

    My 20 cents worth…

      I come here to view pics, read comments, laugh and sometimes drop a tear when moved with writeups are inspiring. But I must say, this comment deserves an applaud, it is true that nigerian fashion designers (over-used word) have used this medium as a step to quickly become popular jingoss with all due respect some that are not better than my road ide tailor even calling themselves Creative Directors, pls i beg. what you have said here is true its time we start looking for other ways to promote this industry everyone is not a fashion or creative director but have one talent or the other about fashion, clothing and styling, its better for each to harness one’s energy to where their strenght lies rather than tagging along. Even with Niola, I appreciate your efforts not here to criticise your designs but can see you made a conscious attempt not to use the word CD or FD rather called it Niola clothing.
      But I can also see your business acumen, you made your clothes readily available to the customers immediately after the show, very clever, the competition out there is fierce and you quickly took the opportunity while you can and not allow people to immediately forget what they saw and think, next…well done

    I wish to commend Niola, for her gesture & persistence in spirit by making her dreams come through.
    Great things does not start great, they start small.
    I have a questions to all critics here: how many of you have a dream that is healthy and alive?
    Keep it up be yourself!

    Why oh why have pantyhose/tights suddenly become a fashion accesosory in a climate as hot as 30 – 32degrees??!! Still can’t get my head around it tbh! It just looks extremely ridiculous, we might as well wear mufflers and gloves to complete the look!!!!!!!

    every industry has critics,we need them to build ourselves stronger and to become better in our act. I love the comments I read above and I applaud a few. I must say that NiOLa clothing is an upcoming fashion house that is still taking baby steps in the fashion industry. I would commend her for her creativity and being able to pull off a show that big. That just shows us that she has more things up her sleeves and she would shake ABUJA very soon. I was at the show myself and it was fabulous.

    Eniola, please go back to School of Fashion (if yu ever did sef). Time for graduation is not anytime soon. There really isn’t anything interesting in what you showcased. You obviously still have a lot of work to do but you deserve to be commended for even getting this far.

    be nice people. can’t fault her for trying. the designs are simple alright but that’s not a bad thing. some people like simple clothes. if you find her collection uninteresting go shop elsewhere.only evil people tear others down like this. well done niola. having said this, i must say i agree with a few of your critics. you could have put some innovative and eye popping pieces on that runway. when you organise a fashion show, people expect to see things they haven’t seen before and a lot of the things you had there have been seen over and over. congrats anyway. things will only get better. you crossed the first hurdle. keep a it and give your best. in a short while, you’ll have this people eating their words.

    i agree with kid to an extent. we don’t need more designers who are only interested in creating over priced clothes for vain mindless fashionistas. what we need are people who will churn out good quality clothes in their thousands thereby creating jobs and providing good quality clothes for nigerians. that’s what we do at emily matthews global ltd. we train aspiring designer so they can have the set skills necessary to succeed and help this industry reach it’s full potential. we also manufacture good quality ready to wear clothes at affordable prices. let’s stop being so selfish. building other economy like Dubia and china’s while our GDP goes to hell.
