    • ?? Thanks darling ?? ?? As in ehnn… stretchy fabrics are not friendly one bit ?? I agree o, the paper method will require that you start peeling off the paper afterwards.. I opt for candle wax instead. Lmaoooo!!! The first time I window-shopped Balogun, I went with a designer friend who had a good grip of the market already,so I was just a surveyor for the day .. Hhahahahaha you’ll need to critically explore to get great stuff (for a reasonable price) in Balogun ??…. Good ol’ Aleshinloye.. Kai Jolaade.. you just brought back memories of Aleshinloye nauw.. fabrics are expensive there too, but ihz noh az bad as Balogun .. and they can drag someone for Africa ehn

    This is wonderful. Great designs, masterpiece prose. Tolu, why not consider waiting for a style magazine? I think you have it. Even those of us who no know book are still doing tuketuke as if we are there. Come out and shine joor.

  • All fabrics are truly not created equal. Learning to understand, accept, accommodate, and deal with people with their respective characters was something I struggled with at some point. Personal experience as reflected in this article helps us understand and learn better. I wish many people understand the lessons here.
    Good stuff!!!

  • Afi Praaaaa!!! Dazall! !!! Those Balogun people be like “Fine geh come na, I get your size, ” You be God. Sorry about the initial tear, But in reality.
    The Hustle fashion designers go through is not scriptural, but that’s what removes them from Tailor ??????????

    Nice write-up. Good to see “everyone” represented. I should feature in next edition. Thank goodness the dress wasn’t for a client.

  • This was an amazing story…all the chuckles in-between and life lessons carefully woven in. I appreciate this. Your dress came out wonderful! I like the sleeve length and slightly body-hugging feature. Oh and the first thing I loved were your shoes!!! Looks amazing on your legs, girl! ????
