Eku Edewor’s Effortless Buy Nigerian Fashion Parade Featuring Jewel By Lisa, Maki Oh & Bunmi Koko

Eku Edewor has always been a huge supporter of the “Buy African” fashion movement as evident by her latest red carpet stylish moments. Whether it’ll be a beaded Jewel By Lisa asymmetrical-hem stunner or a kaleiodoscope Bunmi Koko silhouette, Eku manages to stay ahead in the curve. The 53 Extra host keeps her fans in the loop on what she’s wearing via daily tweets and twitpics posted on her official Facebook and Twitter pages. We love Eku’s Grey graphic print pants she wore at  2011  Hennessy Artistry Video Launch party! Actress Lynn Whitfield also took part in the fashion parade when she was photographed in a off-the-shoulder Ere Dappa ankara dress.

  1. I really like the Buy Nigerian campaign! I’d buy more if it wasn’t so expensive though. But the designs are lovely

  2. It’s always refreshing to see celebrities supporting the cause!

  3. The Buy Nigerian campaign is a great idea. It would work better if most of the designers were more affordable. But i love all the support its getting
