Ladies! Are you Owambe-Ready?
Unlike most western societies, in Nigeria the party season never really comes to an end as we enjoy fairly good weather all year round. Well, except for when rainy season does its thing for a few months and even then the party never really stops. There is always an event or two happening somewhere. In southwestern Nigeria, big celebratory parties are referred to as ‘owambe‘, which are cultural-themed parties that require you to dress in traditional pieces as opposed to rocking western-inspired looks.
Receiving an invitation to a cultural-themed ceremony often means that you have to purchase what is reffered to as the Aso Ebi package containing the choice fabric for the party. The package may also come with a Gele (headgear) as well as other necessary accessories the celebrant dims fit to add.
The next step after receiving the Aso Ebi package is what we call the search; which has to do with seeking out Aso Ebi styles that would transform the fabric into something that you would be delighted to see yourself in and something that will outdo all other attendees’ styles, leaving your lovers and haters alike speechless! The goal is to be the hottest person in the room after the celebrant. So who better than your favorite celebrities to inspire your next Aso Ebi slay?
