Jewellery designer Gbenga Artsmith, presents his new lookbook tagged Fàájiquin and it chronicles the delights of Owanbe lovers aka #AsoEbiBella of the Nigerian society – from the uber glam of makeup and gele to fabulously tailored outfits and not to forget beautifully crafted jewellery!
In the words of Gbenga Ayo-Dada, Creative Director of the Gbenga Artsmith brand,
Fàájiquin was coined by me and I fondly use the moniker to describe owanbe queens and elegant brides who are always the cynosure of eyes at various celebrations. They are the symbol of fun, glamorous fashion and revelry. Fàájiquin” is also a mythical tonic that I believe gingers party riders who hold back nothing when grooving and having the time of their life at owambe gigs. Something just has to be responsible for all that high-octane energy. Lol
This 15-piece lookbook is the most versatile collection to ever come from the stable of Gbenga Artsmith. Most of the pieces are multipurpose and can be rocked with anything!
