Here is an interesting story about what I wore on this day.
I took my dad’s shirt which he had purchased from a local fashion designer in Lagos Nigeria. He was wearing it the one day and I told him I would like to make a dress out of his shirt. He laughed at me at first then he later agreed when he realised I was dead serious .Well this was long before that signature blue and red African Print Shirt that everyone had broke the internet. This was even before they decided to give the print the name “Aztec”. Everything about this shirt gave me life. I have been told how you can tell how great a Nigerian designer is is by how well presented the embroidery on these signature shirts look and this is always perfectly placed around the neck all the way down to the chest. These shirts are made while you wait , all you have to do is bring the fabric of your choice and the designer goes wild .This piece was indeed well excecuted and people always ask me where I bought this “dress” from. I always have to explain that this was once an extra large men’s shirt and thanks to my mom’s Fashion Design skills we managed to transform it to a dress.
