A Fab Day Out for Fashion Enthusiasts! Exclusive Photos of Ashionye, Omoni Oboli & Adesuwa Onyenokwe at the Official Launch of Byge & the Unveiling of its Regeneration Collection in Lagos



Obijie Oru (Creative Director, Byge)

On Tuesday 1st May 2012, budding new fashion brand – Byge officially unveiled its brand and launched its new collection – “Regeneration” at the Coral Hall, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The well attended event which kicked off at 2 PM was hosted by the ever gorgeous Nigerian actress – Omoni Oboli, who gave a brief speech of how Obijie (Byge) got her to audition for her role in Figurine, even though she hadn’t met her. After her speech, she and Obijie cut the ribbon and officially declared the event open.

The special guest of honour – Adesuwa Onyenokwe (Publisher, TW Magazine) encouraged upcoming designers to take bold steps and ended her speech by commending Byge. The fabulous event also saw performances by Onos, Ayuna Dance Troop and Ameena who performed on stage with Ashionye Ugboh Raccal’s son.

The MC – Cordelia Okpei called Byge on stage and interviewed her. Byge gave insights on her journey so far and the inspiration behind the regeneration collection. The Regeneration collection came out in 6 different categories, first was the organza pieces called Kijie – named after Byge’s niece meaning love or precious in her local dialect, followed by the Law Series inspired by her university days, then the Utsu Collection meaning chic in her language comprising of contemporary outfits made of ankara and damask, then their bustiers collection. The fashion presentation came to an end with the Skeske collection, after which byge’s bridal gown was shown.

      Lmaooooo!!! As in, she needs fashion school! See how badly her bustiers are cut, even the ones she’s wearing. And please, she should not claim others’ work as hers. SHE DID NOT MAKE THAT RED CORSET.

    BN, I have a suggestion for you. Your picture heavy posts are getting tedious to look at. I think you should look into a gallery option like yahoo articles where you can scroll horizontally and comment individually on pictures. I am not sure how this will work on mobile but it worth checking out.

      May 15, 2012 at 9:33 am

      I second. thats a very good suggestion. BN pls consider.

  35. @AtimTimLive

    May 15, 2012 at 9:57 am

    Thanks luv @Cleopatrabriggs! I try my best o! Anyone who’s looking to lose weight follow @AtimTimLive. I liked most of the clothes on the line, (the see through ones not so much), but i feel that tailored to the right contours of a more “Coca Cola” sized lady/shape they could really come out well. But i dont see the Ankara styled Shoes?!! I loved them! I’m buying the Blue Platforms as soon as I can.

    May 15, 2012 at 10:06 am

    Like the boldness of the desings although most aren’t street wearable, at all. She needs more fine tuning either with experience or better yet fashion school.

  46. Lulu

    May 16, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    Am not feeling Ashionye’s dress, could be bera. Her baby is so cute though. Some of the runway dresses….not doing it for me, some others are OK.
