How are y'all doing? Yes, I've been MIA for a week.
I have no excuses!! You know how it gets sometimes.
So what have you been up to? Getting ready for xmas? Since there are soooo many weddings in Nigeria this xmas, I know some of the brides definitely read bellanaija so congrats to all of you! May God bless your marriage and make the marriage even more beautiful than your wedding ceremony. Wedding ceremonies in naij are on another level now....as in, I hardly attend weddings but I am constantly astounded when I see the photos. Fabulous! but on the other hand, divorce rates in Nigeria are getting very high. I have 2 friends (not friends of friends or people I just heard about o) that are under 30 and already divorced/separated....plus I hear about many more. Anyways, just some food for thought. A friend also recommended this Nigerian movie titled 'After the Vow', it starred Desmond Elliott and Stephanie Okereke. Y'all should see it. It had its annoying moments like every other Nigerian movie but the message is strong. I have the same sentiment about the Tyler Perry movie, 'Why Did I Get Married'...those are my 2 recommendations for your weekend movie picks.
Anyways, back to blogging!
I saw this feature in Genevieve Mag some months ago and was really impressed.
It featured 3 of Nigeria's top young designers. Mabruka Mai Deribe, Lanre Da Silva Ajayi and Lisa Folawiyo.
3 different styles, 3 different personalities, 3 successful women.
Check it out!
Lanre DaSilva Ajayi - LDA
Lisa Folawiyo - JEWEL BY LISA
Mabruka Mai Deribe - MABS COUTURE
That's it for today! Leave a comment, let us know what you think! The reason I feature many of these designers is with the hope that it will inspire others with the talent and/or business savvy to pursue their passions. I hope its working!!! cause I am really looking forward to more young Nigerian (and African) entrepreneurs cropping up! On the same topic, check out Business Week's feature on Top Young Entrepreneurs in America (they are all 25 and under!!) . There are 3 young people of Nigerian origin on the list! Be Inspired and have a fab day!!!!!!!
