There's something about this dress that screams Nigerian and class which we love. Nigerians are known for their classy and expensive wears at social gatherings and events and this stunner is the perfect attire for any social gathering. It is the perfect outfit for a wedding, naming ceremony, you name it. We love this look and the bold flower on the right shoulder is a shoe stopper.

What is a naija celebration without food? These food images were made with so much creativity. We especially love the first cake photo which recreates a Lagos scene, we love the danfo, the street sign boards. We also love the rice and peppered stew with plenty orishirishi, and the green leaves as a prop just makes the photo pop.
We love!
