BN Exclusive - AD by Agbani Darego Showroom - September 2013 - BellaNaija - 027

In April, BellaNaija Style exclusively revealed to you that former beauty queen turned entrepreneur Agbani Darego will be launching her denim line – AD by Agbani Darego. (Click here to read)

On Wednesday 18th September 2013, the Miss World 2001 opened the doors of her AD showroom to the media.

For the event, Agbani looked simple-yet-chic in a pale  AD v-neckline blouse, AD jeans and a pair of yellow wedges. The look was accented with diamond stud earrings, smokey eyes and neutral lipstick.

Opting for minimalism with the AD Showroom, the products take centre stage. The most alluring feature in the showroom is the denim bar which is an interactive space for customers and provides them with an intimate experience of the products.

Spotted at the event were beauty entrepreneur Elohor Aisien, blogger/entrepreneur Noble Igwe, stylist Ezinne Chinkata, Glam Networks CEO Bola Bolagun, media personality Jumai Shaba and fashion blogger Adaku Ufere.

On the denim line, Agbani says “It is a line that caters to the ease we require of our personal style and it is intuitive to our body, style and pocket needs”.

Products available include its range of Jeans, Bags and its Zip front Shirt Dress. Polos and tunics will be introduced later. The official launch of the AD Showroom will take place in October 2013.

    Exquisite!!!

  2. That african chic

    September 20, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Agbani has this exotic look to her. I am not feeling the denim bags but the jeans look great on her. Hope she targeted the average Nigerian. Oops from the look of the people who graced the event she did not. I was actually expecting to see a lot of young students and young professionals but the women look like the normal ‘high’ society peeps

    Agbani is so slim. The last picture with other women, made them all look obese beside her.

      They’re actually quite affordable. I just read Adaku Ufere’s full expose which includes the price of the jeans. Check out thirdworldprofashional.com/

    Did Agbani get a nose job? Nice collection though minus the jeans bag looks so 90s

      September 20, 2013 at 5:36 pm

      I just checked her nose now and pulled up a picture from 2011 and I think you are right oh!!! But it is all about what makes one happy. Good luck to her.

    • Chic

      September 20, 2013 at 8:17 pm

      I think it is contouring. A good makeup artist can contour the biggest of noses to look smaller

  13. nene

    September 20, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    a lot of makeup but she looks good. the body tho, she needs to get to a size 8 or 10, then BAM!!!

    agbani is so beautiful but me thinks she looks quite skinny around the neck…..hope she is not starving herself to remain slim oh…..and nene u must be kuku in the head i guess? with how skinny her neck looks she should go down to 8 or 10?

    • nene

      September 20, 2013 at 1:45 pm

      she looks like she’s a size 6, that’s why i said 8 or 10. i believe she should gain weight.

    Ehhhhhh…… no, these jeans are not for me- I am too short and have the typical big hips and small breasts of the African woman- I leave Agbani and her friends to their devices- at least they look like each other and can borrow off each other lol

  30. dlapikin

    September 20, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    It really annoys me when Bella Naija post this type of articles and says nothing about the fashion items themselves. Ok We saw the pictures, you could have told us more about the product. Where are they made, what sizes, price ranges… We like looking at the pictures but we may also wanna know these other things.
