The Beauty & Fashion Collective hosted Haute Halloween – A Costume Party, powered by Lenovo Nigeria, on Sunday 30th October, the first of its series of fashion and beauty themed parties.

The founders Lola Maja-Okojevoh and Funmi St Matthew Daniel treated their guest to a private party at Samantha’s Bistro in Ikoyi.

An amazing selection of cocktails was provided by Distell using Amarula & Bisquit Cognac, while naughty treats were on hand thanks to The Cookie Jar. To set the mood, classic movies played in the background on a Moore Advice digital truck supported by Eva TV, a subsidiary of AMC International.

Guest included Toolz, Adebayo Oke-Lawal, Ezinne Chinkata, Denola Grey, Omowunmi Akinnifesi, Idia Asien, Onah Nwachukwu, Mariam Adeyemi, Ivie Omenai, The Mbadiwe Twins, Chef Eros and more.

    Now when has Halloween become a Naija thing.? I just feel we lack our own identity abeg. pls let’s start celebrating our own festivals…like the New yam festival, Eyo masquerade, Festac 77, etc. Most of us call those evil, devish etc…yet some happily celebrate Halloween (they don’t even know the history) with the devilish looking costumes because it’s an oyibo thing…na wa o. Naija sha

      No one is stopping you from celebrating new yam festival though. Be the change you want to see in others, and until then, you and your kind should stop with the hackneyed “Halloween is not Nigerian” comments

      If Halloween isnt a Nigerian thing, then we should DEFINITELY do away with Bank Holidays, Workers Day, stop speaking English, wearing trousers etc. British people celebrate Chinese New Year and Americans celebrate Yom Kippur or whatever. It’s called GLOBALISATION. You people should stop being so myopic and unhappy at other people’s activites on this site. This is what Bodundade calls ‘pepper body’
      *PS if you dont celebrate New Yam’s festival and Eyo and if you dont even know the actual festivals celebrated by your tribe, you’re as shameless as you’re hypocritical

      Poor comparison. Chinese-Brits celebrate Chinese New Year, and Jewish-Americans celebrate Yom Kippur, but it’s still no Christmas or New Year’s Eve. The larger society simply acknowledges. Remember too that the British identity things you’re quoting are a colonial legacy, and were not adopted by choice. Silly as the idea of Halloween in Nigeria sounds, it’s clearly an elitist thing, and with the size of our repat population, we can’t but.

      Yeah, just like we imitate Christmas, a holiday with pagan origins. #liveandletlive

      Waiting for someone to have something to say about your comment. I agree with you @corolla. A lot of people forget that we didn’t start with Christmas, it was sold to us. Bottom line is we pick and choose

      No disrespect, that is a very stupid comparison. There are christians in Nigeria, regardless of the origin of the celebration, its a day for christians all over the world. It is not a country specific celebration. Halloween on the other hand is very particular to a few countries and its engrained in the culture and tradition of these countries. Nigerians have absolutely no business celebrating halloween. Its like Americans celebrating Nigeria’s independence, new yam festival, or democracy day. Please do not give excuses for ridiculousness.

      To someone. Actually, hallowe’en has Christian origins. 1st November is traditionally All Saints Dayor All Hallows Day, And its eve (32st October) is known as the night of the dead

      Not like I particularly care for haloween, but if some people want to celebrate it, what is your business? Just keep it moving.

    Honestly Halloween is not an African thing. Nobody even gave the thing as much effort as the europeans do. And its fine. I think it was just a reason for them to host a party and hang out.

      Naah, no responsible parent(s) will allow their kids go out alone o. Kids came knocking on my door in batches yesterday and a common denominator was their parents right behind them. Even in obodo abroad, parents are not that trusting again o. It was fun sharing sweets. The kids put in so much efforts but, l don’t get it when adults go overboard tryna turn it into some huge party. Every mallam with im kettle. Do you.
