‘Zibah Couture

It’s no surprise that I’m always on the hunt for new Nigerian labels. I just can’t understand why Nigerians find it so hard to support our economy and shop Nigerian. Having said that, with the excessive rent, demanding tailors and ridiculous expectations, Nigerian brands tend to be overpriced taking us back to square one, shopping abroad. At the end of the day let’s face it, if the H&M’s and Primarks of this world are cheaper and execute a cleaner finish, why would anyone shop Nigerian? Well, I guess we’ll have to weather the storm if ever we’re going to see the rainbow and for this reason, I will support Nigerian fashion as far as my wallet will stretch me.

My latest Nigerian discovery is called ‘Zibah Couture. ‘Zibah Couture is a friend of mine, Andie and her brother, Charles’, label and it’s the diffusion line from their Mum’s label, Hephzibah Couture. I was invited for their launch in May and got the chance to examine creativity from a fresh point of view. To sum it all up in a simple paragraph, I’d describe ‘Zibah Couture as a subtle twang on early Versace with an appreciation of African print.

Below are a few pictures I took at ‘Zibah Couture hope you like….

  1. Love the skirt she has on. Always great to see fresh Nigerian brands. I know people say “the market is saturated” but do they know how many independent designers there are in London, NY, and other big cities? It’s just the beginning for Nigerian fashion.
