Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa located in West Africa and shares land borders with the Republic of Benin in the West, Chad and Cameroon in the East, and Niger in the North. Today, Nigerian Fashion is becoming more and more popular around the world and has now well and truly earned its place in the global fashion industry. Aso ebi translated to English means “family Cloth”. The Aso ebi fashion in Nigeria is a cultural trend which involves outfits made from matching fabrics worn by a group of people to a party, wedding, traditional wedding, naming ceremony, funeral and social events. Aso ebi fabrics are typically of ankara (african prints) or lace materials for the outfit with occasional head tie/gear (gele). Aso ebi for funerals are generally simple but Aso ebi for weddings, parties etc are glamorous.
