Lagos, Nigeria, is brimming with a diverse array of events and vibrant parties that promise to captivate you from sunset to sunrise. From cultural gatherings to pulsating nightlife experiences, the city offers a dynamic range of options to suit every preference.
Fashion, is however a major a means of communication and showcase of groups in prints and styles in Nigerian parties. Clothing is bold, colourful and majorly uniformed.
A lot of people make their own clothes, using parties as a way of advertising their services as stylists and tailors. It’s a fashion choice and an economic necessity, which eventually came about the name Aso Ebi among the western part of Nigeria.
Aso ebi, sometimes spelled as asoebi in Nigeria and ashobie in Sierra Leone and the Gambia is a uniform dress or dressing code/style that is traditionally worn by the Yoruba People and culturized by some other African cultures as an indicator of cooperation, camaraderie and solidarity during ceremonies, events and festive periods. The purpose of wearing the dress can be to serve as self-identification with age mates, relatives or friends during social occasions.
The word aso in Yoruba means cloth and ebi denotes family, so aso ebi can be described as a family cloth usually worn during family ceremonies like weddings, funerals, naming ceremonies, birthdays etc. The practice has now spread beyond family dressing because strangers of a celebrant can wear the aso ebi.
