Image
Naijagal readers there is a new fashion line being launched called LSHANDI on July 14th Here is what the LSHANDI founder had to say: "I was born and grew up in Nigeria which is where I got my inspiration for my designs. Having always wanted to be individual in everything I did, I have tried to change things up and stand out. I am fascinated by vintage designs and some of creations have vintage influences. L~Shandi designs are a mix of western designs with traditional African fabrics in a way that gives you the freedom to create your own look by integrating them with your existing wardrobe. Wear any of the tops with a pair of jeans or dress it up by wearing it with a dressy bottom. The easiest way to figure out what color to co-ordinate an L~Shandi piece with is by going with the color of the inner lining. " CANADIANS NEXT TOP MODEL MORAYO!
