FOR THE CURVY FASHIONISTA: MA'BELLO LAUNCH THIS WEEKEND

If you're plus size, this must be good news. I'm excited for this as well as i have friends and clients constantly trying to find fabulous plus size clothes. I was very glad to get this in my mail. Enjoy.

 


MB is a fusion of African inspired fabrics with Eastern and Western fashion patterns that fit any curvy woman from UK size 8- 22. The line is embraces different marketable styles and pattern, which does not adhere to a specific fashion trend.

MB’s mission is dedicated to promoting a positive image of Nigeria and Africa globally. The unique fusion of rich African history, culture and traditions with Eastern and Western will open renaissance in the Nigerian fashion industry.

 




Creative Director of MB, Osa Aisien a curvy woman herself started MB after years of frustration to find clothes that were stylish and flattering in her size, the curvy fashion represents the biggest opportunity in retail as an average woman is a UK size 14, it's the most underserved market. MB aims to fill the curvy fashion gap in the designing and retail market.

The inspiration for the line is in memory of Osa’s mother Modupe Bello-Osagie whose style and elegance shaped Osa’s passion for fashion designing. Osa’s early background also plays a strong role in MB as she has always been encouraged by her family to follow her passion. Osa all through her working career has constantly developed her innate fashion designing skills alongside working in the corporate world.

POSITIVE STRIDES IN OUR FASHION INDUSTRY: THE VANE-STYLE SHOWROOM

Hi ya,

Took a quick break from work two days ago to attend the launch of the Vane-Style showroom a place where designers stock pieces they need solely for press/publicity and stylists can come and pull pieces for magazine covers, editorials, ad campaigns, celebrities, tv shows etc.

It is the brain child of Celeb stylist and personal shopper Veronica Ebie-Odeka.

First of all let me just say a big thank you to Veronica for this.When she first told me about her idea i was sold on it completely. You see as as a working stylist all i see here is my work being made easier. I don't have to call up different designers, send loads of emails and sit in hours of traffic going from one artelier to another to source for pieces when i have a shoot.

Also i think its a great platform for designers to get on. They dont have to be thronged with calls from stylists to get pieces. They also dont have to worry about stylists not returning pieces on time damages and all. The showroom takes care of that. At the moment there are 18 designers on board which i find pretty impressive and i do hope that more get on board.

Some of the designers at the showroom are Republic of Foreigner, Alter Ego, Toju Foyeh, Bridget Awoshika, Jess Stephanie, Ms Makor and a host of others.



My outfit is from Alali Boutique and was quite the star getting compliments both at the office and at the showroom. For enquiries and to purchase contact Alali Boutique on 08133282944, 07066912089
