Nigerian Fabric stylist, has deftly transformed aso-oke from an occasional ceremonial outfit for Owanbe into an everyday wear.
Aso-oke is a hand-woven cloth created by the Yoruba people of West Africa usually woven by men and women.
The fabric which denotes high status in the society, is used to make men’s gowns; called agbada and hats; called fila, as well as women’s wrappers; called iro and head tie; called gele for ceremonial purpose.
Meanwhile, @ceomaniaalasooke has changed the narrative of Aso-oke from one single story of Owanbe wear to everyday exquisite for corporate meetings, official wear, jacket and other casual wear.
