    i have said this before, and i will say it again:

    what’s the point of showing us these clothes (that are fabulous, by the way), when many of us don’t have direct access to the shops. better business acumen would be for them to have a website where they can sell their clothes.

    Ella & Gabby tried to even have a website, but they don’t sell their items there. so what gives?

    • Damygurl

      April 16, 2012 at 7:00 am

      I was thinking the same thing…I went on their website and was disappointed they didn’t have a ‘shop’ option

    I cant believe this. This is fabulous and glamorous. Africans are very talented. They are set to give the West a run on the fashion runway. This designer should premiere Mercedes Benz Fashion week. Congratulations Nigeria. We cant wait to have these wow collections in New York.

  25. AlittleHumour

    April 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    If they are being unveiled in Nigeria, why is it called “spring collection”???? And those pieces cannot be worn in obodo oyibo right now cos of oyi…

    As an African American in Hollywood, i am proud of these collection. A friend of mine who owns a fashion blog called my attention to the clothing line and i believe that the label would make us proud like other top African lines in America. The ANKRA is fantastic.
