Ever wondered how people would interpret an “African Victorian themed” party?? Well, we have just the answer!! It was Ezinne Chinkata’s birthday on the 17th of  August. She threw an African Victorian themed party on Sunday (the 16th)  for family and really close friends. ..with little or no notice..Most of the attendees interpreted the theme as best as they could from their wardrobes.. Fun times!..

Ejay and Ceejay Jibunoh  !! Don’t you just love Ceejay’s interpretation of the theme?? Love the riding boots and the added Ankara Touch; light blue ankara print Cravat. Ejay  was  a rebellious Victorian belle in a gorgeous piece by FIA.

Monalisa Chinda

Hang on guys!! It’s Monalisa Chinda!! The Nollywood star had the best coiffure interpretations by miles!!It automatically placed her right smack in the theme…Gorge!

We are quite obsessed with Ugochi Omonode’s brown clutch.. .. It lends her structured cut-out maxi by FIA a really quaint air and would fit right into any era.. Hers was quite an effortless look. We love the coral beads!

We are not quite sure how Victorian Chioma Frederick Eze’s outfit was.. but we were certainly up for the cohesive fusion of Western and African influences. Her glittery blue hat by Ene Maya perched at a jaunty angle gave her ensemble by FIA a nice spin!!

Fifemayo Aiyesimoju was heard proclaiming thus “I came as an African Victorian man”! Err..We sort of totally see where she was going with this…

Adebayo Oke Lawal had a modern re-endition of the Victorian theme with pieces from the orange Culture  collection and a surprising twist with the denim top..

How cute is Vonne Nwosu’s print against Bayo Oke Lawal’s… She’s equal parts whimsy and equal parts seductress in scarlet red with tulle and coquettish flower garlands..

..amd one of our fave designers Uju Offiah, Creative Director of Meena  looked gorge in a Pata-pata Ankara dress from Zinkata over a sheer navy blue sheath.. Spot the quaint bag??

Emmanuel Okoro

We love Mpho Laing’s interpretation!!Her sleeves lend her outfit a restrained Victorian elegance.. while the Ankara prints gave it a refeshing African twist… sort of reminds us of the 1985 movie starring Oprah Winfrey, “the Colour Purple’.

Ihuoma’s jacket has a distinct Victorian cut.. and it’s Ankara!!

Nnenna Ukadike

Nnenna Ukadike proves that a classic look remains timeless.. The classic stripes and simple cut of her maxi could easily be from any era.. with the hat..err “The African Victorian Gypsy??”!

Latasha Ngwube’s outfit was quite literal.. A Victorian high-waist shirt, matched with an Ankara African wrap.. It worked perfectly!

Funmi Daniels and Onah Nwachukwu both look great in their graceful maxis, victorian accessories  and grand bearing..

..Isioma’s high neckline and voluminous skirt was another African Victorian  favourite from the night. The cool grey tones were a great shade for her skin and we love the braided updo!

Ezinne says to Kayo Ezenwa “I absolutely love your dress” .. and Kayo responds with a smile” Oh thank you”.. We absolutely love it..so subtle yet still carrying  the theme right along.. and she tied in the African theme with the beads.

Moses Ebite came as a…??? Please tell us, Moses.. In his defence, he came right from an old school party… and .. We find his outfit super cool..
