Of Turbans and Statement Jewellery

After doing the piece on the Nigerian gele, I decided to do a more relatable headpiece post. What’s more relatable than a turban? Whether as a fashion piece to accessorize outfits, on a bad hair day, or for religious purposes, we all have those scarves and head-ties hanging in our closets. We decided to spice this whole experience up with loads of fun accessories.

A big thank you to my gorgeous models Asha and Zam, they were amazing to work with. Headwraps and jewellery are models’ own. Zam is like the turban guru, she can whip up amazing turban styles in seconds. She did an amazing job styling both turbans.
