Celebs & Stylistas with Tsemaye Binitie in Lagos! Exclusive Shots of Wizkid, Caroline Danjuma, Ojy Okpe, Dolapo Oni, Kemi Adetiba, Elohor Aisien & More at the Designer’s A/W 2013 Trunk Show



“Metropolitan Chic” , “Red Carpet goddess” and “Demure Beauty” are some of the many ways to describe the woman adorned in a Tsemaye Binitie outfitIt’s no wonder, American music stars Carrie Underwood and Alicia Keys are fans of the London-based Nigerian designer.

On Saturday 4th May 2013, Nigerian online luxury retailer 5th + Quansah hosted the in-demand designer for the first and exclusive unveiling of his label’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection – Number 6 at the Didi Museum, Lagos.

The event which kicked off at mid-noon, saw celebrities and Lagos stylistas including Wizkid, Dolapo Oni, Misi Molu, Kike Soyode, Ruth Osime, Kiki Kamanu, Zara Okpara, Kemi Adetiba, Ify Umeokeke and Tokini Peterside in attendance. The walls of Didi Museum were decorated with artworks by Ighodalo George from his Pungent Punctuations collections.

Dressed in simple, yet chic, outfits, some ladies at the event gave us lots of “shoegams” including Elohor Aisien in nude Valentino Rockstud Slingback sandals, Caroline Danjuma in tribal black-and-white heels, Vanessa Banigo‘s white sandals and Ojy Okpe‘s black pointed toe pumps.

While shopping for the fab pieces, guests were offered gummy bears, yummy cupcakes and glasses of champagne. Check out all the photos only on BN!

      Fashion is art and is meant for display to be seen, if thats the way the artist wants to illustrate their work then its fine. Models know they are there to display clothing either in a still photo, runway or any way the artist wants to.

    choi! Models dey suffer shaa *shakes head* and you know you’re on fire when niggaz who don’t know you have your picture on their Tee–Nice! O, and judging from the design of the clothes and because I see paintings in the background, I’m guessing the clothes are meant to be displayed as a form of art and not worn. I’d love to hang one of them in my gallery–beautiful!

    For Real…not one ugly person in these pictures. Just imagine how fresh looking and beautiful, glowing skin Nigerian women in Nigeria are and me I dey here for America dey suffer. Listen Naija women in Nigeria, you people look a thousand times better than us abroad. Always dressed to the hilt and looking fabulous and gorgeous all the time. I will come home to find out what is going on in Nigeria and soak up some of that beauty. YOU GUYS LOOK FABULOUS!!!!. JUST BEAUTIFUL FACES.

      LOOOOOOL – As in – I dey abroad and I dey alright. But I do know what she means. Girls in Naija eating organic food and proper food and dont get up to much – work/study so they end up sometimes appearing fresher. But Na Who dey help them? should be the question – collecting multiple incomes from many guys/uncles/ogas etc so how them no go fresh.

    • chiquita

      May 12, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    Very refreshing. Most of these women, infact all the women look beautiful. And, their natural skin color is glowing. Less horse/goat looking weave. Moderate makeup. I’m truly proud of Nigerian women now dressing simple, classy and beautiful.

    Please Bella 9ja POST my comment Oooo…
    The clothes are Ugllllllyyyyy as Hell!!! The guy should look for a job in a Museum or as an Artist or something along those lines. Women’s fashion is a no no. Some of the styles look like the curtains in my Grandma’s house in the 80’s.
    As for the guest, they looked good, best so far for a Lagos event. Not as shabby as we used to see. Mrs is Danujuma is looking hot hot hot!! Money dey talk!

    The guests have better clothes on than what the designer put on display on those human mannequins. Nice classy crowd though.

  41. prim

    May 11, 2013 at 2:36 am

    A bit disappointed. Tsemsye normally has good clean cut designs. While this collection stays true to form, they almost or should I say are school uniforms and not pretty ones for that matter. The model in short pink dress and a 3/4 length blue needs nourishment. Seems the legs have bowed and the skin is showing significant deterioration around the knees and calves

    May 11, 2013 at 9:09 am

    So it seems my fellow Nigerians want to talk rubbish again about something they cannot do! If you really understood fashion you would see that the designer stayed true to his aesthetic and put together an awesome event the like that has never been seen in Lagos. I say more grease to your elbows Tsemaye. To the girl in the white dress you slayed that look!
