Nigerian Style Short Gowns Are Perfect As Wedding Guest Outfits

Gown aso-ebis (wedding guest wears) are some of the finest, you’d agree. Or what about wearing an ankara or lace short gown to work on a Friday? I like that you can look both elegant and simple in a traditional style short gown. And for brides-to-be who are planning a honeymoon, be sure to include one or two into your honeymoon suitcase.

Nigerian traditional wears and dresses are really looking better and better every day, and competing well in the International Fashion scene. The finishings are becoming better and better – even with outfits made by local tailors.

A few years ago, I was at an International Fashion show and was amazed at how the Onyibos and Nigerians abroad were buying our made-in-Nigeria gowns, even though those ones were really costly.

  4. How to make purchase request? I am in Congo (DRC)

    • Hi Irene, welcome to NaijaGlamWedding. We don’t sell dresses – we are a magazine website. What our readers do is to take find a tailor/ dress-maker who lives near them to make their desired gown/ dress for them. Take your mobile phone/ tablet PC along when you go visit your tailor and show him/ her the style you like, ask them to sketch it and replicate the style for you. I am sure that there are fabulous dress-makers in Congo.
