Proposed NameEdit

WIKI Love Africa : NAIJA Fashion, Cultural Adornment Contest


Nigerians are very fashionable, asides been fashionable; Asides from sticking to our traditional means of dressing, Nigerians love to attend social events. In Lagos state alone, about four thousand parties are held every weekend with each party hosting between 500 to 1000 people. This amounts to about 2,000,000 to 4,000,000 people attending such social events weekly. These people dress in the traditional homogenous attires specially chosen for the event and popularly called ‘Aso-Ebi’. This goes a long way to show how vibrant the Nigerian fashion scene is, local designers are springing up every day, long-time designers are going international and fashion designs abound. At this year’s Wiki Loves Africa, we plan to showcase this vibrant-social part of Nigeria.
