Urban glam

ZEBRA, the clothing label run by Ugonma Ebilah, is gradually building a strong profile for itself. In the last few months, it has held a variety of shows, which have provided a forum for both fashion and socialisation to meet. Its shows have always been a perfect opportunity for Zebra enthusiasts to mingle while browsing through the racks. Last Sunday was no exception. At the Urban Nectar show held in Bambudha Restaurant in V.I, where incidentally, it has showed in the last one year, fun loving and fashionable people turned out in their numbers to see the label dish out new confections from its new collection. Some of the outfits were really sweet and looked rather edible with the interesting detailing like beading and colours and accessories that pop.

Mix and match


Matching two or more fabric to get one remarkable outfit requires the creativity of the designer. It’s a common thing these days to see fashionable ladies turn out for traditional weddings in outfits with combination of two or more materials such as ankara, adire, lace and more. And this trend usually adds more colour to the ceremony. Realising the beauty of the craft, designers are now trying out new ways of making the style more colorful and appealing by injecting other fabrics such as tafeta, bridal satin, dry lace, wooden, and sometimes adding beads to make it look more gorgeous. This style has become very popular and fashionistas even go beyond their own shores to have a share of the beautiful design. International designers such as Louse Vutton, Channel, Prada, and others have embraced this concept in most of their recent designs. You could try matching your outfits too and see how attractive the combo style is.
