I am a British citizen and was born in the UK but have Nigerian descent as my parents are both Nigerian. I'm visiting Nigeria for a several months to spend some time getting to know the Country and learning about my heritage, it is the first time I've experienced the Country first-hand. I'm fortunate that I have a good job in the UK that has allowed me this great opportunity. I really want to embrace the culture and that includes the Nigerian fashion. I was reading not so long ago that there are actually many talented fashion designers from Nigeria and their clothes are worn by many famous celebrities. Seeing how the people dress in Nigeria is very different to how people dress in the UK. I am very interested to find out what people know and understand about Nigerian fashion. Whether they are aware of Nigerian designers and whether they like the kind of style that Nigerian designers create. Their are a lot of different designers with their own unique style and I think that the Western culture of the UK may identify more with certain ones as some of the styles can be very flamboyant and out there. I haven't really given it too much thought in the past as I have been use to wearing Western fashion. In recent months though, since I've had a bit more cash to spend, I have been taking a keener interest and have been playing around with styles. Now I'm in Nigeria, it would be a perfect chance to find out about and try some of these styles for myself but I'd be keen to see if anyone here has any input on the subject. I've found a very good site that has fashion goods for sale based in Nigeria so I have already bought some clothes from them. Thank you so much and I look forward to your responses.
