It’s been a while.
How is life navigating through this covid season? I’ll tell you for free that life will never be the same. Lol. Every industry has been shaken, including fashion. But it is quite amazing to see designers still churning out awesome pieces.
I present the Victoria Collection by Nigerian Designer, Tubo. Tubo is a brand that I have admired for a while with its excellent stitching and innovative expressions of different Nigerian traditional apparel for women. The fabrics chosen by Tubo are rich and are embroidered with different kinds of stones. It really does make the woman super classy.
This collection features one armed dresses, elaborate bows and tails, and an infusion of traditional Nigerian wear with the sophistication of western tailoring.
Colour Palette: black, creams, mustard, peach, rose
I love this shimmery mustard tube dress that fits quite snugly on the model. It has with an underlying leotard and an elaborate and equally shimmery greenish bow behind.
This dress reminds me of the Rivers state traditional outfit. The tube part of the dress has a sweetheart neckline with a beautiful bow. There is also a layered cream fabric serving as the second wrapper. This outfit brings an added sophistication to the quintessential traditional Rivers style., coupled with its head gear.
This class black evening dress is perfect, with pleats and bow detail as well as its elaborate tail.
I love this female tuxedo with lace details and a hat for good measure.
This one armed pink dress with the elaborate bow is quite classy. I would have preferred a less grand slit but the lace detail pairing the dress to the bow add more pizzazz to the dress.
