African fashion is on a steady upward spiral and Nigeria is at the helm of affairs, churning out amazing talents and beautiful pieces every single day and here at BellaNaija.com, we absolutely love when our celebrities pay homage to Nigeria by donning outfits by the country’s budding designers, especially on “out of Nigeria” trips.
One superstar who recently caught our eyes, is award winning Nollywood thespian Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde who was the epitome of perfection in a custom royal blue dress by Alali Boutique in Tanzania for a movie premiere.
When Oroma Cookey-Gam (Creative Director, Alali Boutique), was approached by the actress’ team to design a dress for her, she immediately knew it had to be fitted structured dress to show off Omotola’s stunning silhouette. Oroma said “Naturally for me, a structured dress means I have the liberty to play with patterns, textures and colors without the dress looking over the top and garish. The vision for the dress was a classic, non-conventional dress that says a lot without saying too much. A dress that would make its wearer feel confident and elegant. I chose to do the dress in one color- royal blue- and concentrated on different textures in that color that express opulence- tulle, chiffon, satin and rayon jersey”.
Omo T accessorized the custom Alali Boutique dress with drop down feather earrings and black Christian Louboutin “Alti” Pumps.
