I was invited to attend the launch of Brand Nubians in Nigeria which took place on Saturday the 4th of August at the Silverbird Mall in Lagos. Brand Nubians is a fashion e-tailer whose focus is providing Africans with access to authentic fashion items. Their products include women’s wear, men’s wear, kids’ wear, jewellery and other accessories.
I decided to wear the classic all black because not only is it suitable for a night time event, it is very flattering for women like me who are endowed 🙂 . I switched the look up a little with an orange snake skin purse.

For my makeup, I went with metallic brown eyes and coral lips. I like to wear metallic eyeshadows at night because they reflect nicely:

I was unavoidably late to the event, so I wasn’t able to cover everything. There was a runway show which I missed unfortunately but here are some shots I was able to capture.

Brand Nubians is a purely online business so their store in Silverbird mall is only a representative office. They however had these items on display at the launch. Love the gold and purple shoes! Want!
Head over to www.brandnubians.com to view a wider range of products and brands they stock. They offer free shipping within Lagos for first time orders.
Peace and Love,
