The face when someone asks ‘Is Adire still in vogue?’ Huh… Is that even supposed to be a question. Many people think Adire is an old or vintage fashion theme synonymous with old women and ‘iyas’ probably because it’s an old clothing that goes as far back into the 1930s from the ancient Oyo town.
Well, excuse you, who made the rules???
When it comes to fashion, your closet is to be as versatile as an actress! The Adire fashion has evolved beautifully over the years, with more amazing, quality styles and designs. It’s 2021 and the Adire is subtly sneaking up on other African fashion styles. From Owambes to hangouts, church, beach, even to offices, you can rock the Adire anywhere and however you want to, you call the shots with Adire.
The tiedye cotton fabric has this unique feel that stands you out and that is one of the many reasons the Adire fabric is gaining grounds globally featuring on international fashion runways and TV shows. In our previous post, we showed how Michelle Obama, Lupita Nyongo and many other cool people wear Adire. No be juju be that? Haahaha, absolutely not because Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga don’t wear Iro and Buba. Adire has evolved so much when it comes to creativity such that both the old and contemporary styles can be combined to give new and unique fashion statements.
