One Nigerian Boy goes into the closet of Nigerian Fashion and lifestyle blogger Adaku Ufere, a.k.a Daks of Third World ProFashional for the first feature in this ‘In The Closet’ series. I first met Adaku at the monthly Le Petit Marche trade show and I was a bit flattered when she professed her love for my blog, now that I’ve been reading her blog for some time now, I’m equally smitten.
Word has it that loads of people go to these fashion trade shows and event to pose and interact without buying stuff but my wandering eye has caught Adaku picking up stuff on several occasions and she was even wearing a Deola Sagoe polo the first time we met which proves her #BuyNigerian ability not just liking.
I asked Adaku to show me her favorite pieces from Nigerian designers and other stuff she’s obsessed about and about an hour later after loads of choco milo, water and shots it was a wrap.
Odio Mimonet Bag: I love the colors and excellent craftsmanship. You can see all the hand detailing and amount of time that has been put into this bag.
Meena: I own 4 Meena pieces, which makes it one of my favorite Nigerian Fashion labels, if not my favorite. The first 2 and the last one are from her debut collection, the 3rd one is an old dress I got years ago when she was not a fully established designer, but I still rock it!
Babushka: I love Babushka because the clothes are trendy and affordable. You don’t have to break bank to cop a few cool pieces.
Lanre Da Silva Ajayi: My mom gifted me this dress years ago and it’s still treasured as if it’s new. I like the vintage vibe it’s got.
Ejiro Amos Tafiri: I copped this months ago at LPM, it was on sale.
Jini: This is a new label with cool clothes for very pocket friendly prices. I got this dress for just a little above ₦5,000.
