The first Vendor and her adorable little boy.Love her work and her friendly personality. The clutch purse I'm holding looks like it was made from a CICAM fabric. Love it!
One of the designers...love her head wrap.
I was also happy to meet the very cute designer Bob-Ij. She was really friendly and I regret not going through her designs. Fortunately, she shared her blog address with me and I was able to see a bit of her work and from what I could see, her clothes are for the young Nigerian Lady...and they are really affordable. As you should know by now, I'm always for the creative and industrious Nigerian so I'm going to ask you to please support the Dione Mauvement.
And for hair inspiration form the beautiful Bob-Ij visit Bastile of Beauty
Talking with Bob-Ij (lady above) was the coolest brother at the event
Ms. Ukoh Valentina and her eclectic collection. Everything was beautifully made.Thumbs up for you, Val!
Like those beaded baskets and the key holders...
and don't get me started about the bag...
Guess what that is....a mirror. I wanted to buy it but I had run out of cash by the time I got to her table :(
I have very limited information on how you can order items from her but I was able to get her BB Pin: 223B4606 and her fb address
Another Abj Curly. Love her curly fro and bubbly personality. I bought two hair accessories from her. The picture below is my sister wearing one of her creations. Hope to see more of you Sister!
...and more beautiful people...
My friend Dee and her friend.
Love her TWA
I want her skirt!!
My friend Dee and her Cousin.
Thanks Dee for sticking with me all through the event and giving me the liver to ask people to pose for the camera:)
The event was great and I loved the time out with my friend. I've known her for about 10-11 years and there is never a dull moment with her.
Abuja people were their usual...'ABJ' selves and most of the vendors where great but I noticed some things that need to change. In a subsequent post I will deal with the aspects that need improvement .
Till next time people, always remember that the growth of our Country and Continent lies in our hands. And because DB&K loves creative and industrious Africans, its always a joy to share the works of your hands with a wider audience. So don't be shy, take pictures of your work and send them to me at email@example.com. Peace!
