Posh International Nigerians

August 13, 2014 § Leave a comment

Hello Beautiful People,

This is going to be my first post on Posh International Nigerians -PINs. PINs are basically Nigerians that are making a difference, being creative and doing positive things. Don’t you get tired of all the negative connections people make with Nigeria, not just in life but also in series and movies – Lost, Castle, X-men, Leverage…do I go on?

I came across an article by Sunday Akinlolu in Tuesdays Guardian, ‘Esther, the Nigerian dress, makes history at the Smithsonian’. At the risk of sounding rather ‘un-posh’, I didn’t know what the Smithsonian wasI have done my research now and apparently, The Smithsonian is the world’s largest museum and research complex, located in Washington, DC , United States . Don’t say I never taught you anything.

The Esther dress has found a new home at the world’s largest museum.

The Creator and The Dress

The  piece of art dress is called Esther, It is an absolutely beautiful, hand painted silk ball gown brought into existence by Ms. Torlowei of Patience Please – Nigeria’s first registered lingerie manufacturer.

What do you think about the dress- worthy of the Smithsonian Museum or not?
