BN Pick Your Fave: Tonye Garrick & Jennifer Obayuwana in FIA Factory




Yay it’s our first BN Pick Your Fave for the month of November and special thanks to that BN Reader who pointed it out!

Today we’ve got music star Tonye and Executive Director of Polo Avenue, Jennifer Obayuwana in Fia Factory.

We love the chic ways these two stylistas made the outfit their own.

Tonye rocked the FIA factory ‘Agbada’ set  with a white box clutch and a pair of white sandals.


Jennifer Obayuwana took a bold step and rocked her FIA Factory outfit without the trousers. She paired it with a Les Petit Joueurs bucket bag and a pair of Dolce & Gabbana shoes.

    Meanwhile you should really consider using polls on posts like these so that we can easily vote and clearly see the winner. Not everyone has time to comment.

    Jennifer sure knows how to mess up outfits

  9. More (clothing) is more, please.

    Ms. Garrick.
    1. Because she is covered up and does not look indecent and cheap.
    2. Because her look looks more elegant.
    3. Because she doesn’t look like she’s trying too hard (unlike the other).
    4. 1 contributes greatly to 2 & 3 but but apart from that, her look just is more elegant and attractive. The other is repellent and simply makes you pity the person.

    I don’t know either of the ladies, and I stating things bluntly in the hope they both see things for what they are and make changes. People can be so fake, and tell others, friends, etc, how wonderful, how fashionable, how stylish, even avant-garde they look, and then go laugh at and mock them behind their backs. I’m tired of all this nakedness and indecency, and yes, I do like fashion and do dress stylishly in Nigerian designers and western clothing and hardly a day passes (and I tell no lie, truly practically EVERY day) someone, and often more than one person, (mostly women and girls, including perfect strangers often) will come up to me to admire something on my body if not even my entire look, either my jacket/top, skirt, shoes, bag, hair, all look and very often total strangers included come up to ask to take my photo (I had to agree for my bank manager but I insisted they did not include my face) or rather the photo of my clothes to give their tailors to copy and even my shoes to look for and buy. It is NORMAL for me to go out and women come up to me, even much older, perfect strangers, and say to me “You will remove this your jacket and give me before you go.” or “You will bring this your jacket/top/dress/shoe/skirt for me next time.” People often ask me if I am a designer.

    I have not yet started wearing haute couture from Milan and Paris and New York, that is not my point. I just want to make it clear that being anti-indecency and immorality and pro-modesty, decency, virtue and morality does not automatically mean there is a no make-up, no lipstick, no weaves, no jewelry, longsleeved to the wrists, high-neck maxi or adire kaftan, boubou or iro and buba-wearing, natural hair in suku religious fanatic behind this post.

    My skirts and dresses are knee-length at least, actually on my knee, I don’t show cleavage, I hardly wear sleeveless dresses, I wear mostly short or cap sleeves, a few times, I may sometimes buy clothes (Nigerian designers and western high street, and high street designers) that the design shows some cleavage but I take them to very good tailors to use embellishments eg. beads, stones, sequins, etc to cover those places/cutouts up; I do the same with dresses that are really nice but just a bit too short, I have tailors buy good lace, leather, accessories and add on to the length with very good stitching and finishing and people never know the clothes did not come like that; same thing with clothes that come with lining that is too short, stops halfway down the skirt or dress so that half the thighs are exposed, or with full lining but the lining fabric is too thin such that people can still see through especially when the wearer is standing in direct sunlight and you can see everything, I just have a tailor add more, or the right lining. I don’t sew clothes, I buy ready-made, both Nigerian and western; I use tailors (both in Nigerian and abroad) just for alterations. I think if as a woman you have time to shop for clothing, to fix weaves, do nails, buy fabrics, choose tailors, sew, go for fittings, do the things women do, you have time to ensure your fashion/clothing is decent. I have lost absolutely nothing in fashion credits and more importantly, style, neither in admiration from men (I even have men coming to compliment me and ask for the information of my tailor or where I shopped so they can take their wives there, and I have had to write down information or describe directions in detail) and women, of all ages (ALL), bank balances and fashion, by doing so.

      Wowzer, all because of a “Choose your best” post? Tried to read it the long epistle, but mba, I no fit.

    • Wozzalldis?

      November 6, 2015 at 4:53 pm

      So you wrote this epistle to the Galatians all to say what? Because this your magazine column has no head, tail or middle. Pick one and go your way, no. You have to inform people in a long, badly punctuated essay that you’re a modest dresser. Okay so what should we do? Knack our head on the ground abi? Gerrarahere please.

    This BN sef. How do you expect Jennifer to feel if she sees this post now? Like sometimes Pick your fave section makes sense and other times, i fear it’s just to spite people. Sigh

    Tonye looks lovely as always. Jennifer is with her baby! I can’t hate but she could have done better

    this Jennifer woman needs a stylist urgently, a clear example of money can buy fashion but not style
