Powede Lawrence

The outfit that former beauty queen, Powede Lawrence, chose for the 2015 edition of Music Meets Runway was one of the most talked about aspects of the show.

The dress was hand-crafter by a designer called Bola Yinka-Obebe and it was created with 300 plastic Access Bank Debit and Credit cards. According to the designer the dress took 96 hours to complete.

We think it is very creative!

    This is a brilliant one! Brands, not all the time out logo on banner. This is how to make a “fashion statement”.

    Love love love it. Brilliant creativity but wait, did she borrow the cards from that Northerner that was arrested at Kano airport with 870 ATM cards on him? Errrr…Powede honey, did you stand all through?

    As soon as I saw this I remembered the original I saw years ago. The original credit card dress was designed and worn by Australian costume designer Lizzy Gardiner in 1995. It was made using expired Amex cards was quite a famous dress. You can see it here:

    It would have been nice if the so-called “designer” of Powede’s dress had given credit where due. Then again, these so-called Naija “designers” who simply duplicate the work of others never do.

      MsMak . Yes I agree they should give credit to whom credit is due…..but Powede’s dress is finer than the original … least they copied and improved on it.

    SUPER creative! Excellent work! Simple yet stylish design! Who said it’s a copy and credit should be given? Excuse you.
