Africa Fashion – essential to any traditional Nigerian outfit, but often overlooked by international fashion design, is the Nigeria cap that men wear with their traditional clothes.
“Nigerian clothing is unique and very attractive!”
Nigeria is a country with rich culture with well over 250 major ethnic groups, each ethnic group has its unique way of dressing
“In Iboland the red is for chiefs, while ordinary person can wear black, brown, green or white.”
It is often called the Red Ozo or Ichie Okpu.
