An African Victorian Theme Party

Ever thought of having an African Victorian Theme Party? Well, think no more! My facebook friend,Ezinne Chinkata a fashion consultant, editor at and fashion retailer based in Lagos, Nigeria threw an African Victorian themed party on her birthday, Sunday 16th August 2015.
The result I must say is beautiful and stunning! Everyone nailed it.

Below are some pictures from the party for inspiration . . .

Ezinne recently opened a boutique – Zinkata Boutique – A fashion and eclectic fashion boutique in Lagos, Nigeria which is a fuse of vintage, classic, african, chic pieces and much more. Congratulations to her on the new store.

    thx so much for posting these photos. I LOVE the boldness and vibrancy of African fashions. I’m pretty sure you will never see pastels among them and I like that!

    Never thought of this theme Chin. The closest iI’ve come to an African Victorian theme party was an Egyptian theme party when on a Nile cruise. The fashions were similarly bold!

    What a fantastic idea! I’m completely impressed with these outfits, including the men! I think they enjoy dressing up as much as we do, though some aren’t so quick to admit it. Love the table decor too. SO good to see you back!

    Wow – just wow! The colours, the fabric, the style, the confidence!
    The models are “owning” every single item of clothing.
    Thank you for sharing and welcome back!

    Has there ever been anything described as Victorian with so much color? Trying to imagine what a full group shot would have looked like.

    I love the table centerpieces. They are so unique and interesting. I also like the picture of the women laughing. That’s just a great shot and a real moment. And, of course, those colorful outfits are spectacular.

    These fashions are simply stunning! The colors are so beautiful, but I am a classic kinda gal so I would go for that floor-length black dress in a heartbeat!

    That is a colorful palette of designs that must have resulted in an amazingly energetic night. It looks like a great festive night.

    LOVE all those fabulous fabric prints and beautifully structured garments. Makes me want to get my sewing machine out and head off to the fabric store. Nothing like this in the UK sadly. What a great idea.

    What wonderful pictures.
    I do have a stupid question, pardon my lack of knowledge in such things, why is it an African VICTORIAN Theme Party? All I know is the Victorian age was from 1837 until after the turn of the century.

    I love Ezinine’s outfit! All the outfits creatively blended the elegance of theVictorian Era. I The party’s theme was ingenious.
