Wedding Fashion: Legit Readers Speak on High Cost of Asoebi, Reveal How Much They Can Pay, One of the fun things about wedding parties and other ceremonies in Nigeria is certainly the glitz and glamour associated with asoebi.

The concept of asoebi

Asoebi, sometimes spelt ashoebi in Nigeria, is a uniform dress or dressing code/style that is traditionally worn as an indicator of cooperation, camaraderie and solidarity during ceremonies, events and festive periods.

The affordability of ankara fabrics contributed to the popularity of uniform dressing.


However, imported lace and George fabrics were incorporated into Nigerian fabrics and have now become popular choices for asoebi.


While the prices of these fabrics vary, they are generally more expensive than ankara fabrics.
