Fashion Alert: Nigerian fashion house, Jahda unveils debut collection ‘Jagaban’

Nigerian fashion house and men’s wear label, Jahda has carved a niche for itself  over the years in the Nigerian fashion industry. With its numerous designs that have been seen on various celebrities and top shot individuals, one could easily say the future looks great for Jahda without even batting an eyelid.
For its debut collection, Jahda goes from the usual to the extraordinary; from what we are conversant with to what we didn’t see coming.  With a bold step the fashion house redefines  the usual Agbada ensemble we’ve come to know since the 40s or 50s in the mainstream Yoruba culture to what it calls “Jagaban”.
‘Jagaban’ is a redefining mix of the popular Agbada style with buba all in one ensemble. Apart from the mix, one also notices the one sided agbada “flap” style making it seamlessly easy and comfortable to wear to anywhere without even breaking a sweat, while still looking dashing as a real Yoruba ‘angel’. _
 When asked the idea behind the design,  the Creative Director of Jahda, Opusunju Daniel said the fashion space has over time constantly revolved round designs like Agbada, Danshiki and the rest and its about time to reinvent new crop of designs.
In his words ” Often the industry keeps revolving round the Agbada design and its high time we did something else that will be comfortable to wear any day, anytime like your normal native attire and would still be classy at the same time without breaking the bank”.
The design is basically tailored for fashionista and other bold and stylish men and women out there. Would you rock this and look #jagabanish

  1. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari. Superb Blog!
