Polos & Denim from Deola Sagoe alongside Music from MI & Nneka – Photos from the “Just Before Christmas” Event



In what must have been a ‘first-of- its kind’ – renowned Nigerian designer, Deola Sagoe collaborated with award-winning rapper MI for a unique event. The event was described as “a celebration of music and fashion with an autograph signing session with both Deola Sagoe and MI“.

On the 19th of December 2010 at the Deola Sagoe Flagship Store on Victoria Island, Lagos, fans got to experience Deola Sagoe’s Polo Couture and the new Jean’Gida denim range while they enjoyed music from artistes, including MI and Nneka.

    Okay this is the second time I am seeing CHANTELLE wear her flip flops on the red carpet. Pretty girl but what’s up with that? If you are too lazy to get dressed for the event you can always stay home you know.

  12. Dimeji

    January 11, 2011 at 9:34 am

    It is Femi Akintilo and not Femi Akinfulo.Btw, Hauwa Mukan totally rocked her outfit.

    January 11, 2011 at 10:35 am

    Firstly, did anyone notice that all the people in the pic with Tope Mebude are using their blackberry phones?????????? Seriously, people, cut down on the addiction!

    Secondly, Chantelle Unachukwu????????? Isnt that a tad bit too much flsh?? Tummy showing and bum shorts? tsk tsk tsk *smh*. She looks like a hot mess. Worng outfit for the event too….where’s your dress sense?

      What’s wrong with showing flesh? Are we in Saudi Arabia?

      Btw, not sure why many of the comments here are tripping. Chantelle’s outfit displays a playful irreverence. Quite apt for a denim-and-polo (aka t-shirt) event.

    *swoon* I see a very good-looking man… Ebuka, who are you? Where are you? *giggles*

    Was this supposed to be a casual or dressy event? Half the attendees are casual and the other half are dressed up. Maybe Nigerian events should state whether guests should dress up or down? Maybe?

    – I love Deola’s top
    – WHO IS THIS EBUKA SOMEBORRI???? He’s a hottie!

      January 28, 2011 at 11:06 am

      @iya- why don’t you put the venom from your deep-set fangs to better use, instead of bleeding them all over the BN page?? Your style commentator skills will serve you well when you attend the fashion shows in Paris, London, Paris and Milan, this coming season. Oh,wait a minute, you are a common civilian & as a result are- NFI. However,I’m sure that Biki John’s work ( that she gets those tickets, so who cares what her job title is!!
      And p.s- as for your ‘Biki John always looks like a hot mess’ comment-how in God’s name have you had the opportunity to meet/see her on so many occasions that you can give a summary of her style? Back in your cardboard box my friend.

    • Biki John

      January 28, 2011 at 11:48 am

      Hi Iya, Biki John here. It’s interesting to see how an outfit I wear can muster up so much resentment, immaturity and bitterness in you. Such is the power of fashion and that’s why I love it so much. You are entitled to your opinion (about my clothes, taste etc) and landing cheap blows as you see fit- if that’s what you need to do to make yourself feel good & have a purpose in life. As to what I call myself, or how others choose to label me in the fashion industry- don’t worry your pretty little head about that; I am getting my props doing what I love in one of the fashion capital’s of the world, I’m A-OK. Also rest assured that I am secure enough in my career, that I don’t need to resort to adding you or your barbie to my client list.

    @notsosubtle- First of all insults have a much sharper delivery when words are spelt correctly- so ‘knowledge’, not ‘knowlwdge’. Furthermore, it looks like this is what she could come up with after ‘Z yrs of experience’- – with clients like ARISE and VV Brown- looks like her world is pretty sweet to me!!
