Evolution of Iro and Buba - AFWN

AFWN's goal is to showcase Nigeria's heritage through fashion. This year, we take a step back to fashionistas of our past to get a glimpse of how they lived. Through the years styles evolve but kinda remain the same (sort of).  Let's just say we get our stylish gene from somewhere (wink!) AFWN will put up an exhibition on May 24th, Gala night that consists of images of fashionistas' best expression in Iro and Buba. Competition starts now, read on for a chance to enter.
