Nigerians react with mixed feelings to style recreation of Tubo’s design

  • A fashion house identified as Damian’s Couture, has taken to social media to share photos of their latest piece
  • The design is a replica of celebrity designer brand, Tubo’s ‘High Tea’ jumpsuit, which has become a popular design
  • Several internet users have reacted with mixed feelings to the recreated version with some commending the designer

The top Nigerian fashion brand, Tubo, is undoubtedly one of the emblems of fierce and ultra feminine styles, and perhaps, this explains why it has become a celebrity favourite.

One of its designs, the ‘Impact dress’ has continued to cause a buzz on and off social media, with the likes of Tiwa Savage and Lilian Esoro rocking the look.

The design features a corset attached to an intentionally-placed open zipper. In photos and videos shared, Tubo’s creative director, Sandrah Tubobereni swapped the dress look for a jumpsuit which she tagged the ‘High Tea Jumpsuit’.

The brand recently shared photos of its own version of the design on social media.

The cups on the corset were also bedazzled, unlike the original look.
